Yes, it's now Christmas Day here. Actually, it's about 1:30 AM as I write this. I'm on call, and although it's been pretty quiet, I don't tend to sleep very well when I'm on call, so sometimes I don't bother to go to bed for a while. And, other than brief rounds on my own ward in the morning, my morning will be leisurely. We don't tend to get up as early these days as we did when we still had kids at home.

So, to each of you I wish the best. I know that not everyone celebrates Christmas, and that some feel offended by Christmas greetings. Those of us who are passionate about Christmas, and about the one whose birth we celebrate often struggle express ourselves without offending. I certainly wouldn't want to offend, but I hope that each of you is blessed, that each of you is touched in some way by the spirit of this season. The short way to say that is, of course, just "Merry Christmas."

Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays to those of you who don't do Christmas.

This season is marked by various cultures due to the winter solstice. It's the time of the sun's return so to speak. When it rises after the longest night and the days continue to get longer.

As an American atheist of a Catholic upbringing, I celebrate the typical secular type Christmas. The one with lots of vestiges of the old pagan festivals, many of which were adopted by Christians in their celebration. It's a time of year for good will and generosity. Even when I was religious, the Jesus angle was such a very small part of it. So I continue to enjoy Christmas (aka Yule-tide) as much as ever. Regardless of the occasions people make note of, I think having a day devoted to celebrating, family, friendship, kindness, generosity, forgiveness and just general goodness of any sort, is a wonderful thing. It doesn't matter what day you do it or what you call it.

Best wishes on the coming new year as well.

Yepper, Ol' Ironman doesn't beat around the bush much, but he does make a very good point. Most scholars tend to agree Jesus' actual birth being around Sep of 3 BC, and in the very early days of Christianity, the differing factions (of which there were many) decided to adopt the birth celebration to the solstice celebrations. In any event, Merry Christmas, Happy holidays and all the rest to all.

Uh.... None here, either. I'll keep a sharp out for some and let you know if I spot any. Breath-holding not recommended.
