Merry Christmas 2016!

Post by Fred Barclay »

Merry Christmas to everyone on the Mint forums, and have a happy New Years' too!

(And for your consideration, Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven", Christmas Edition.)

And as I live in Texas, it seems appropriate to repost this Tex-Mex version of "The Night Before Christmas":

Doesn't this technically break the no Religion rule? :)

I'll bet Fred will enjoy this one:

It's a video of my church's Christmas play. You might also enjoy this one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpmA6UIB8yg

which is a video of a song our pastor wrote.

Not sure if this is technically a violation of the no religion rule or not. There have been several "somewhat religious" threads here that have not been deleted. And a lot of people celebrate Christmas, whether they are religious or not. So should we ban Fred for wishing us a Merry Christmas and starting a religious thread? (Just kidding, Fred!) This doesn't feel to me like the sort of thing that's likely to degenerate into a flame war. Merry Christmas to you all! (Even though it's still a bit early.)

It's not christ-mas that I fear,
not all those reindeer,
or even the new year,
but only the twentieth,
and those days after
I dread
celebrate while you can.
नमस्ते = Namaste
I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you in which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace.
When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one.
