If Jesus had foreseen the stress and expense his birthday was going to cause he might not have been born Lips are sealed

Re: Christmas

Maybe it was foreseen, and the first thing that everyone said when he was born was "Oh Jesus !", and the name stuck.  Cheesy

Re: Christmas

the wise men were all Jewish and its long been held that Christmas credit was a Jewish conspiracy to control the masses regardless of what religion they claimed to follow .......

lets totally ignore the reality that the fable was written to encompass the all father feast and tradition of gifts being given to each member of the village ......

Re: Christmas

Sorry, the evidence cannot be produced as the government department that was redacting large parts of it for security reasons has either shredded it or lost it, no official is quite sure.
A commission of enquiry is to be set up, but so far nobody has been brave enough to agree to chair the committee.
The only evidence that has been located are copies of "Miracle on 49th Street" but with the sad demise of Richard Attenborogh the central witness is not available.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Christmas

I want to know if the three old visitors were given identity wrist bands before they were allowed to visit the baby in the hay rack?
