Feel the festivities year round 


Maybe I’m weird but I actually get tired of saying Merry Christmas.  For starters it’s a pagan holiday and not even the actual birth of Jesus at that.

Granted I actually felt more festive this year than I have in years. Maybe it’s the cooler weather.  As much as I miss it out west, I’m thinking of moving north next. I have never been out of the southwest.

As far as Christmas goes, it makes sense that Jesus was born at the start of the Jewish New Year.  This would place His conception around Christmas time since that’s when life begins.

If the Messiah was born in the fall, it would also make sense given the wise men that travelled to see Him. It’s easier to travel during the spring and summer months than the cold winter months.

I don’t get into the holidays much because of over-commercialization and the meaning can and should be celebrated year round.

Maybe then the world would be a lot more peaceful.
