There are many meaningful, thoughtful, and poignant Christmas quotes from all kinds of literate people. Many try to find a deeper meaning for humanity and its treatment of the world and its inhabitants. There are many lessons to be learned, even at this age. However, I have thought those thoughts only to be let down by so much of humanity. Even after watching the violent throngs at Walmart and other shopping venues I know there is some redemption in the holiday season going back to its pre-pagan roots. To get a respite from all this deep thought and heavy thinking I have preferred the lighter side of holiday thought.

In the scrum that is Christmas I have clean forgotten.
All I want is for the light to come back and the days to become of reasonable length again, so I have more time for shopping.
actually, that was Christmas, wasn’t it?

Minneapolis is positively balmy, I imagine, compared to the North Shore, but I, for one, am ready for some global warming.
Thanks for the laugh! And Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
