Mary Xmas

... well it's that day again, the day we
celebrate Christmas

... when I was young, I was all hopped
up about Christmas ... the cool gifts,
parties, family fun, and of course,
lest we forget, the birthday celebrating
the birth of the Christ child

... as I have grown older and wiser, I
don't go for it anymore, the story presented
dosn't stand up to historical scrutiny, and
it's been commercialized beyond any
spiritual connotation

... and how did the X get in Xmas? It
almost connotes a porn factor in it all

... as in Mary Xmas Does Miami

... but I do not what to cast aspersions
on anyone's religion, because as the Vedic texts
say, any believe in a higher conciousness,
is a step in the right direction

... some people need to take baby steps toward
God, and others, take big leaps

... every great civilization has it's winter
celebrations, whether it's the solstice,
Christmas, or whatever other demi-god one
chooses to worship

... you know, innocense seems to be lost
in America, except on Christmas, when everyone
can play make believe that we still it
