Merry Christmas.

A very merry Christmas to all of my readers. I sincerely hope that your Christmas is safe and merry, and that you got something nice under the tree.

Last night we went with the good wife’s family to the local Catholic church. It was very nice, but I was unpleasantly surprised to note that the altar boys were in fact altar girls. Not to mention the fact that some woman did a lot of the readings in between the priest taking what I can only presume were regular breaks for Dutch courage.

Today the good wife and I travel to another part of Holland where we will celebrate with her uncle’s family. Then tomorrow we host a Christmas dinner for her family. And then on Wednesday I will probably spend the entire day on the couch reading a good book.

Best Wishes,

    I noticed in the Queen’s Speech yesterday that few of the choristers for the closing carol appeared to be ethnically English. One girl even had a muslim head scarf. For Heaven’s sake.

    Merry Christmas Adam, and best wishes for the new year to all

    I’m not Catholic, but my wife is. I usually go with her to midnight mass on Christmas Eve to listen to her play piano and sing in the choir. Two of our four alter servers were young girls, and a woman did a significant amount of the readings.

    Other than I live in a small south Texas town, the services seem very similar. I think it’s a sign of the times.

    A little belatedly, a most merry and joyous Christmas to you Adam, and my best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year.
