Discussion 3 to Meditation 17
Celebrating, but not Christmas

At risk of offending some(which is the farthest thing from my mind), I would like to say a few words on this issue. I think that due to the very nature of who I am and what I believe (or better yet what I choose not to believe) it would be a bit hypocritical to say I celebrate "Christmas".

I am not saying that I do not celebrate on Dec. 25th, I just do not celebrate Christmas as such. As far as putting up a tree and decorating it, I will say this: even without knowing if, or caring if, God exists, I do know that trees are growing and that stars are burning and sparkling in the sky. Just a change of perception and my holiday is still decorated. I am celebrating the gathering of my family and friends and celebrating life. So yes, I do celebrate on the same day as the relgious holiday of Christmas It is more of a convenience since almost everyone is already off from their jobs and schools on that day.

Wishing you all much unknowing and apathy during the holidays and new year.
