I've officially heard everything now

From the NYT:

Some of the nation's most prominent megachurches have decided not to hold worship services on the Sunday that coincides with Christmas Day, a move that is generating controversy among evangelical Christians at a time when many conservative groups are battling to "put the Christ back in Christmas."

Man, even us nominal Catholics used to attend Mass on Christmas and Easter. I guess it's just too much trouble for these folks.

I find that news disturbing. And I just heard this morning that some people are selling "holiday trees"! I could go on, but why get myself in trouble.

What? I'm astonished. In my family, Christmas Day was the day we returned to church and celebrated the Christmas Mass with our parents...the only day of the entire year we went with our parents...a return to family and hearth. How odd.
