Simple Christmas

This morning as I read the news online, I saw a piece about the new Christmas ad from the American Humanist Association. Now, I don’t consider myself super-religious or anything. I am a bad Catholic, at best. But still, I got a bit annoyed over the slogan, “Why believe in God? Just be good for goodness sake.” I have friends who are agnostic or athiest and I respect their beliefs. And I get the point of the ad. I don’t think it’s meant to be malicious. I know they’re making a point. But I have to say that it chaps my hide to put this message in the context of Christmas, a Christian holiday. It’s celebrating the birth of Jesus. I find it antagonistic (or grinchy as someone put it in the article) to push their agenda during what is traditionaly a season with a religious focus. But I’m not going to get myself in a tizzy over it. They probably wouldn’t care anyway, LOL!

But then (funny how things happen), I watched this video over on Cheryl’s blog and felt a little better:

I’m all about keeping things simple this year, trying to remember the meaning of Christmas, enjoying time with my family, and hopefully teaching these lessons to our munchkins.
