Merry solstice from France! :)

By remembering the cycle of seasons, we can take comfort in the knowledge that the sun will grow strong and warm us again! In the meantime, we replace its light with decorations.

I invite you to try vegetable pâté instead of foie gras, it can be great too and animal-friendly.  :)

Don't take this for an attack, but in my mind Christmas without God, without religion, is a very sad thing. Gifts, electric garlands, food (with or without meat  :)) cannot enjoy me.

Merry Christmas to all! The Savior was born, alleluiah!

I don't need any God or religion to celebrate that the darkest time of the year has passed and we're moving towards spring again (though obviously in our global world that doesn't work in the southern hemisphere at the same time... :-[ )

I suppose that you find it sad because in your view spirituality equals belief in God. My spirituality does not contain God but makes me happy.

Don't take this for an attack, but if that happens every day, that makes a lot of Jesus Christs.  :D

Hot 40C. Smoke haze this morning. Mostly sunny afternoon. Winds east to northeasterly 20 to 30 km/h turning north to northwesterly 15 to 20 km/h in the late morning.

It’s very interesting who comes from where.

For "Merry Christmas", it's too late.

You almost quoted St. Luke. :)

Quote from: Luke Chapter 2
2:8. And there were in the same country shepherds watching and keeping the night watches over their flock.
2:9. And behold an angel of the Lord stood by them and the brightness of God shone round about them: and they feared with a great fear.
2:10. And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy that shall be to all the people:
2:11. For, this day is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David.
2:12. And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger.
2:13. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God and saying:
2:14. Glory to God in the highest: and on earth peace to men of good will.
