Christmas is not and never has been a truly christian festival - Cromwell tried to ban it as a pagan observance. Xtianity simply absorbed the old festival of Yule/Geol which is a feast in celebration of the return of the sun.

Rampant consumption and 'retail therapy' are closer to the true meaning of Yule than pretending it was Yeshwa's birthday ever was.

Theres no need to feel that celebrating xmas is in any way pandering to religion.

You need to have an awful lot of time on your hands to explore its full beauty but whilst unemployed, I had countless hours of fun with it.

People often become fearful as they meditate upon their impending death.

Even the most resolute rationalist may fall prey to fear of the dark and ask if they could please have their immortal soul back.

I think that such death bed conversions may be safely disregarded.
