Love this seasonal time of year. Winter has now officially begun so the days gradually will get longer until the next solstice. 

Going to try to finish a few projects before the end of the year. hah, doesn't hurt to try. That includes some curtains and  the bench seats I have been steadily working on. 

had a discussion a few months back about foul language. I curse sometimes. I don't do it in public, because I know that can offend people, and in general, if I know that a large audience, such as on social media, would be offended if I did, I also refrain. But sometimes people really are ass***** and deserve to be cursed at, emphatically. 

Christians once banned christmas

"Shocking as it sounds, followers of Jesus Christ in both America and England helped pass laws making it illegal to observe Christmas, believing it was an insult to God to honor a day associated with ancient paganism," according to "Shocked by the Bible" (Thomas Nelson Inc, 2008). "Most Americans today are unaware that Christmas was banned in Boston from 1659 to 1681."

All Christmas activities, including dancing, seasonal plays, games, singing carols, cheerful celebration and especially drinking were banned by the Puritan-dominated Parliament of England in 1644, with the Puritans of New England following suit. Christmas was outlawed in Boston, and the Plymouth colony made celebrating Christmas a criminal offense, according to "Once Upon a Gospel" (Twenty-Third Publications, 2008).

Christmas trees and decorations were considered to be unholy pagan rituals, and the Puritans also banned traditional Christmas foods such as mince pies and pudding. Puritan laws required that stores and businesses remain open all day on Christmas, and town criers walked through the streets on Christmas Eve calling out "No Christmas, no Christmas!"

This photo is from the Glen Rose schools Facebook page. Sure looks like the person who is the coach (and therefore an employee of a public school, is praying with the football players. Am I mistaken? Anyone know? 
 

Hillary Clinton's "May the Force Be With You" a shoutout favor to J J Abrams 

 Twitter users quickly pointed out the fact that J.J. Abrams, the director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and his wife Kathleen McGrath each donated $500,000 to the Clinton-supporting super PAC Priorities USA in June.
