December 13th – Monday morsel

This Monday the morsel comes from a book about christmas. I figured I had to read one of these too, and as an atheist I thought this one looked interesting.

It really is very good, and funny too.

December is historically a time when humans have a festival to cheer them up because the sun has gone, and Christmas holds the current title. Christmas has done well, to its credit. It’s beaten off the competition and is the reigning champion.

There is also a lot to be said for Christmas. The high spirits, good food and bringing people together are excellent things for humans. Although anyone who says it is the greatest story ever told clearly hasn’t read Watchmen.” (Page ?, I’m reading it on my Kindle.)
