Merry New Christmas Kwannza Hanakkuh Years Day

It has been a good long time since I posted anything and I thought that before I head out today that I would post something .....
This week is a busy one for me ....here is a listing of whats going on in my life right now ....
Christmas Caroling with Youth Sunday night.
Dinner tonight with a friend.
Choir party tomorrow night.
Youth function Thursday night .
Big blowout Christmas Cocktail Friday night.
Christmas at my Granny's house Saturday.
Dinner party at Susannes house Saturday night.
WHEW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As with anything you commit yourself to during the Christmas season you find yourself saying MY LORD why am I doing so dang much....Then I remember ...I am happy to do them all.
This is the best time of the year .....and I will argue that point with anyone...anytime..anywhere.
How can you not love this time of the year . Even if you are not a Christian....you can be a Muslim or a Jew or a Jehovahs Witness for all I care ... things are just more fun and festive around this time of the year .....and come December 26 we will pack it all up for 12 more months.
I am as happy as I have been in months .....many things are causing this happiness ...
My friends...my family and all those folks who are special in my life. I am enjoying the ride and letting it all happen. It's Gods Will.
Nick told me the other day that we are all so blessed and I agree so much with him on that one.

In other news ....
We can file this one under DAMN THATS STUPID
At an airport in Washington State this past monday workers removed several large Christmas trees rather than erect a Menorah. A rabbi from the area asked that one be added to the holiday decorations and instead of adding that, the powers that be decided to REMOVE the trees.
We live in a messed up place sometimes. I am a liberal ....a bleeding heart liberal. But this was foolish.
The rabbi said he never wanted anything removed and said he was dropping his move to get a memorah installed. He even had one he was gonna give them.
The trees were being RE INSTALLED onTuesday.
Heres the kicker......
The folks in charge at the airport said that the workers did not have the time to install a menorah!?!?!?!?!?!? WHAT ? Not only did they have time to remove several trees what were well over 15 feet in height they also had the time to put them back up on tuesday. Could they not have found the time to sit a menorah somewhere and plug it in???
All over the country places are once again Saying MERRY CHRISTMAS...and hosting CHRISTMAS PARADES......Heck Wal Mart even changed the name of their holiday center to the CHRISTMAS SHOP.
It is ok to say Merry Christmas and put trees up folks ......and its also ok to install a large golden menorah next to them.
