Once upon a time, I was a total cynic about this time of
year. If I went to a church, it seemed to be permeated by
gossip, people who led soap-opera lives, and folks who used prayer
as a way to avoid doing anything tangible for people. And, in
the mundane world, there was the usual seasonal hype, centered
around a seasonal tree holding the objects of seasonal blackmail
Let's not forget the annual one-upping the neighbor when it comes time to decorate the house. It's gotten to the point that a situation which was included in a comedy some years back has actually become a daily problem in some cities!
Things changed for me when I learned how to tune in certain aspect and tune out certain others. It's not difficult, nobody has to give up anything important, and we'll have our holidays back, regardless of the name of the holiday we're celebrating!
