Axial Tilt

Since the fall semester just ended and quick winter session starts monday I figured now would be a good time to say Merry Christmas/ Bah Humbug.  Yes I celebrate Christmas.  It’s tradition.  I don’t celebrate the birth of Jesus but I sure do like participating in the annual economy boosting ritual that is the time from mid-November to New Year. 

I do think my kittens might be bigger atheists than myself because they take down my tree at least once every few days.  I’m not sure why the vendetta against the tree but between kitten sabotage and the mostly spring-like weather outside I’m not feeling very christmassy.  Maybe if I can manage to get it decorated with more than 10 plastic balls and a soccer scarf then possibly wrap a few presents I would feel more merry and less bah humbug.  

I was thinking of taking the kids to a Christmas eve celebration with singing and candles – i just hope I can find one because I do remember those fondly.  I think it would be an interesting tradition.  Church for the songs, then hot cocoa after (even if it is 60 degrees outside) and maybe drive around and look at some lights.   Though I have little kids and I would like to do this before midnight.   Apparently I have amassed a few christian friends at school that go to church so surely one of them attends one with a 7pm christmas eve singing service?    I guess I should start asking around.
