Just an idle thought, but Christians just haven't thought this through, have they ?
- Why would anyone want 2 Christmases: one is bad enough. 2 sets of presents to have to buy, another month of shopping mostly for food that no-one eats, permanent gridlock near the Trafford Centre (& others), non-stop Slade on the fucking radio, having to be nice to forgotten relatives twice a year, wall to wall carols
- twice as many vicars, ministers, bishops, etc
- double the number of obscure celebrations - most of the year taken up with celebrating on some way
- another Easter, with JC dying, coming back, dying, coming back. All very confusing
So, if anyone wants to pick up the gauntlet of expanding this into a damned good write - and I choose my words carefully - please feel free !
