The title may be misleading. Especially if the whole article is not read completely. Deeply and digested. The article is a brilliant one. Please do read it.

Here’s a few quotes >

Milk and cookies for Santa. Mistletoe. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Frosty. Bah, humbug! Children lining up to see Santa. Children dressed as angels singing “Silent Night.”

These are the traditions of Christmas.

And these are the eternals: We tell the same stories, “And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger.”

And we sing the same songs, “Away in a manger, no crib for a bed.”

And we read the same books, ” ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house . . .”

We celebrate the same way, year after year after year.

We tell new stories, too. But we keep the old. It’s why Christmas stays the same. And why a little bit of us stays the same, too, why we grow up but never give up the possibilities that Christmas brings.
