December 23, 2004
Christmastime used to be so magical.
I'm strangely okay with not feeling the same.
I don't feel like I'm missing anything… more like seeing it for what it really is. There's no need to point out the evidence that Christmas is no longer about the birth of Christ, but about Americans celebrating our wealth. It's fun though. I'm looking forward to giving my gifts, getting some too.

The ceramic nativity scene on our mantel has been replaced with dusty piles of philosophy books. There is enough magic in everyday life to celebrate rather than farfetched stories of miracles and mangers.
