A politically correct Christmas

Jay Leno once made this comment about politically-correct Christmases: "The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C. This wasn't for any religious reasons. They couldn't find three wise men and a virgin."

Things are festive at our son's home.  He says "the fat man" (Santa) brought him new floors and living room suite.  Until recently, he had 3 cars.  One caught on fire when he was on the way to work and he was miraculously warned by a passing angel to get out of the car; the other he sold to someone driving by his home who just happened to like that model BMW.  So he decided to spruce up his place.  Our daughter and son-in-law have also made some recent investments in their lovely home with repainting the first level, new windows, doors and blinds.  But I don't have a photo of that (I think she sent them, but probably are on my other computer).

We had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner here and then went to Lytham Road UALC for the 7:30 service (traveling by full moon), earlier than we usually do  because we're all getting older.  Music wasn't quite the same (Celebration service style instead of traditional), but still had some traditional carols with a more upbeat chorus group and less organ.  But my goodness, that pianist is good.  Plays like my sister, and you just don't get better than that.

And it's back to church on Christmas day for 10 a.m. service at which we will serve Communion, and then out to our son's home in Canal Winchester for dinner and opening gifts.
