Yes, to the question I have sometimes been asked.
This agnostic will be enjoying the days to come.
Given Christ would be the very one he is said to be;
and given you believe what you have been told:
Are you sure he would our preparations for what we call Christmas not call Christmess?
We do not need any god to know that it is go(o)d to be go(o)d to one another.
Yes. We bought a (killed) tree.
Ah, and again having the privilege to do the washing up when the ladies of the house are baking all those most delicious cookies!
Talking we are, joking we are, listening to one another we are, washing up I am. :)
And not seldom I would hear: Ah, Sean/Popoye, why would you think to need reminding us of so drastically of what happens in this world?
And, despite feeling guilty for spoiling their happiness, I'd say: 'Just to remind us of that we are very lucky.'
Not always - and how good I can understand - they would appreciate my words.
But for sure: I do appreciate their (hands') work.
I do like - almost I had written: I love - our annual rituals.
And still, like last year: My 'Merry Christmas' post will not fill your hearts with joy.
It would not be my intention, anyway.
Having written this: Enjoy the togetherness with those you love. Be kind to one another. Very probably, any sign of kindness - may it be some sparkling eyes, a (very) kiss, a tender hug - well, you know what I mean, hm? :) - will be appreciated; more than any (expensive) present.
I am sure!
