Esteemed Anonymous,

I am happy for you that whatever you read into this essay rendered you joyful. T'is the season which so commands after all.

The point of my post, which you appeared to have missed, was to point out the irony of Mrs. Tippett's sanctimoniously lamenting how current Christmas celebration has so strayed from its "true" meaning. While its "true" meaning -the celebration as true the myth of a virgin birth of a son of a deity who became human to die, be resurrected, and ascend to heaven and return to "save" humanity - is in fact no more true or legitimate nor less absurd than the consumer orgy it has spawned and Mrs. Tippett whinges about.

I sincerely wish all your days to be magnificent regardless of day or holiday.
