Some more evidence that our society is becoming estranged from Jesus: Marks & Spencer’s xmas slogan reads, "Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Marks & Spencer" Sorry, but that is bull! What’s Christmas if you forget about the event that started it off, in a stable in Bethlehem some 2000 years ago? Jesus Christ was born. That seemingly insignificant event changed the world forever. Just think about it, and all the trappings of xmas today look so shoddy.
December. "It’s the most wonderful time of the year…" as that Andy Williams song goes. No, it flipping isn’t! Gloomy, freezing, foggy, wet weather, dark mornings and darker evenings. And all the phony brightness and glitter and the xmas music make things all the worse. All I want to do is curl up and hibernate.
