Death Of A Holiday
Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Years Eve and oh forget it!!
Too many holidays in one month! I find it harder and harder each year to send out cards, letters and make phone calls. When did it become necessary to make sure that we included every holiday into our belief system? I celebrate Christmas because I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that he came to earth, born as a baby (like we all were), raised as a man and that he suffered on the cross to save us from our sins so that we could be forgiven and enter into a personal relationship with Christ.
I celebrate the Winter Solstice as a way of thanking “Mother Nature” for giving us food from the earth to nourish our bodies.
I celebrate Haunnika because of my beliefs. To thank G_d that he performed a miracle of light from one oil can for eight days and nights.
The other holidays I either don’t celebrate nor do I understand them. Correction I celebrate New Years Eve.
I celebrate the chance at a new beginning, a new year to bring forth prosperity, health and wellness to my family and friends.
Death Of A Holiday could it be possible? Do we celebrate too many of them?
I leave that answer up to you.
