"The charming aspect of Christmas is the fact that it expresses good will in a cheerful, happy, benevolent, non-sacrificial way. One says: 'Merry Christmas'--not 'Weep and Repent.' And the good will is expressed in a material, earthly form--by giving presents to one's friends, or by sending them cards in token of remembrance....[T]he street decorations put up by department stores and other institutions--the Christmas trees, the winking lights, the glittering colors--provide the city with a spectacular display, which only 'commercial greed' could afford to give us. One would have to be terribly depressed to resist the wonderful gaiety of that spectacle." - Ayn Rand
And for once, how could we at the ARCHNblog disagree? I'll be taking a break for a while, Greg may post as the seasonal spirit moves him. Otherwise a Merry Christmas to all and we'll see you in the New Year.
Dan, Greg, Robert, Ellen, Jay and all,
Likewise to all of you. This blog has become one of my favorites and I hope all you guys have a great Christmas!
Indeed. "Take your ease, eat, drink and be merry". And have a stellar New Year!
