As we approach 280-something-th day of March my calendar insists it is actually mid-December. This makes some sense, Bells, Bows, Gifts, Trees and Seasonal Cheer have started to percolate onto my Facebook feed. Our Christmas (“Festive Holiday”?) Tree is up, lit and decorated (still no angel on top). Our Advent Calendars — yes, calendars plural, … Continue reading the Light of Hope & Thought
Soon they’ll know Santa’s not real.
My eldest child's teacher sends weekly emails to the class to keep us up-to-date on what is going on in the classroom. The most recent email included a section headed "What to do if your child hears that others don't believe in Santa" as the class is learning the story of St. Nicolas (a very real … Continue reading Soon they’ll know Santa’s not real.

Commentary on Ms. Eddy’s “Christ and Christmas”
While I had heard about Ms. Eddy's Christ and Christmas poem growing up, I didn't read it until just recently, when I came across MJSmith's analyses of it on The Ark of Truth Mother's Hood.

Karen starts … Continue reading we are not putting an angel on top of our Christmas tree
