I am often saddened, yet not surprised, by the lack of good spirits during this season. Yes, I’m atheist but I still love December and the holiday and festivities. For years I was unable to purchase much for my kids and family, but I have worked my tail off and finally, this year, I am able to give more than normal – and it makes me so delightfully happy. But there are moments when my happiness is marred by the stinky attitude I have to come into contact with during this month.
Last week, I took my kids shopping – at a mall – I never go to malls – not a fan. But, they saved their own money (they work once a month at gymnastics meets) and they had lists and a budget set for shopping this year.
We had a great time! We stopped for a quick bite at the food court’s Subway. It was wretched. My 10 yo daughter even mentioned that the girl must hate her job. The only thing she said to us was, “What you want?” and, “What you want on it?” It was just…. not nice.
Oh well. We all have bad days.
What saddens me the most is the people who claim to be forgiving, non-judgmental, and loving… and proving the opposite.
Ah, yes… this is called being non-judgmental.
Who says Christian don’t fight in the name of their god?
Personal fave – I’m a good Christian and I forgive you, but I will make you hurt.
Merry Hypocrisy To All!
The Reason Of The Season is a new series that will take place from December 1 – December 25. I, like many non-theists and non-Christians, love the holiday season. I love taking the this chilly time of year to remind the people I love how much I love and adore them, to help and give to those less fortunate, and feel the innocent hope of when I was a child. This series is an effort to educate many on tradition and history as well as an opportunity to share why I love this time of year and the traditions we use and have created in our family.
