Merry Christmas!

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6 NIV

Queen MAB is taking a brief hiatus from the Manifesto in order to celebrate the birth of her King and Savior. Jesus Christ is the reason for the season, and for that matter, the reason I live all year long. Have a Merry Christmas!

The WINTER SOLSTICE is much older than your religion, and it is the REAL Reason for the Season.

Hi FreeThinker! Thanks for stopping by to comment.

You're definitely right that the Winter Solstice is older than my religion. However, my God, who created the Winter Solstice, is by default, much, much older than the Winter Solstice. My God also sent His son, Christ, into the world to be a Savior for all mankind. Because His exact birthdate is technically unknown, I celebrate His birth on Dec. 25.

Furthermore, let's state for the record that religion is man-made, and useful for organization, resource and community. While I fall into the category of "Christian" and, within that, into the classification of "Southern Baptist," my personal relationship with Christ is all that matters. See, it's the relationship, not the religion, that is the reason for the season.

I think that all peoples celebrate this wonderful season for different reasons, and I think all are special and all are valid. I think its interesting how Christmas falls near the solstice, because the winter solstice is a point at the darkest hour, and when the world starts becoming brighter with each day. And in Christianity, the birth of Christ is the beginning of a brighter time, and the spiritual darkness ebbs away more and more. In my mind its no surprise that christmas is celebrated at this time of year. I hope you had a great christmas MA :)
