    Interesting comments on the Christmas Season

    I am constantly surprised at how many of my fellow Humanists actively celebrate "Christmas".   Sure, many of us pay lip service to "Solstice" but then run out and buy gifts for all the relatives.  Personally, I'll admit to doing a tiny bit of decoration, but more in the mood of bringing light into these dark winter days (such as they are at this latitude!)  But the materialism surrounding the season has repelled me for years and the idea that our national economy depends on Christmas spending is downright boggling.

    Here's a New York Times columnist with whom I rarely agree, but I think he's made some interesting points in this op-ed.

    And by the way,  Happy Solstice to all!
