Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

I smell commercialism

["In the early 17th century, a wave of religious reform changed the way Christmas was celebrated in Europe. When Oliver Cromwell and his Puritan forces took over England in 1645, they vowed to rid England of decadence and, as part of their effort, cancelled Christmas. By popular demand, Charles II was restored to the throne and, with him, came the return of the popular holiday. "]  { }

 ~and now onward to America. Let's pause for the cause of Santa Claus! C'mon, put your HANDS together for the guy in the RED suit...........! An exclusive 'dcrelief' removal of the rose colored glasses:

And just for fun:

Cold milk and strawberry cream cheese scones will be waiting ~


  1. Oh my, "Santa Claus, Santa Claus, Santa Claus, we all love you, Santa Claus..":)

    What next, eh? A Jack Russell dog wearing a Santa hat? Arf! Arf!

    Wishing you a most peaceful Christmas, Dixie. I hope you and your friends will enjoy the cold milk and strawberry cream cheese scones.

  2. Hi Penny and Gary!

    Wasn't that song a hoot(?)... a howl? I'm not sure what's gotten into me. Analyzing everything is soooo OCD... or Oh, DC!!!

    Happy Boxing Day!!!

  3. I want some cream cheese scones!

    I remember a time, long ago, when I was young, that Christmas did mean something besides materialism for most.

    Damn, I'm old. :)
