advent aphorisms

~
christmas, a season for reflection and thanksgiving, tends to be the most stressful, greedy time of the year.

~
christ came to bring peace on earth to people of goodwill, but most people just want peace on earth.

~
this christmas planned parenthood is offering gift certificates, so you can gift the gift of death to those you love.

~
most people want love and friendship for christmas and go to the mall to find it.

~
at the washington state capitol, displayed by the creche and the menora, is an atheist poster that denounces religion and god; so visitors are wished happy holidays and happy un-holy-days at the same time.

~
the atheist poster at the washington state capitol building was stolen the other day, thereby proving that it wasn't the grinch who stole christmas but the jews and christians.

~
the most valuable gifts--kind words, time with children, intercessory prayer, a home cooked meal, a care package of necessities--are the least obvious ones.

~
in the retail world, the sign that christmas will be a success comes the day after thanksgiving, the biggest shopping day of the year; the real sign that christmas is a success comes each easter morning.

~
at christmas we celebrate christ, god's free gift, and many of us go into debt to do it.

~
the first christmas the magi traveled thousands of miles to bow on bending knee before the christ child; now children travel two miles to the mall to beg at santa's knee.
