God bans Christmas trees:

Jeremiah 10:2-8 - Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.... They are altogether brutish and foolish.

I believe this also applies to the painfully trendy brutish fools spending piles of money buying Christmas trees that stand upside down.

This is hilarious!

When I went to check it out for myself, I couldn't find my bible. I said, "Where's my damn bible?" I saw a black book on the bottom shelf, tucked away behind some stuff. I thought, "there's my bible for sure." I pulled the book out and it was "Grimm's Fairy Tales."

I read you every day, Amy. You're a hoot, and full of common sense wisdom as well.

Hey - I bet y'all don't get it over there on the West Coast - but the John Boy and Billy Show, a syndicated radio show with about 20 million listeners here in the Southeast featured a bit which related the history of Christmas in the USA. It turns out that churches didn't want anything to do with Christmas, because the retailers took it to the bank.

Of course, churches now go to the bank, too, and they've evened the score. Why is the church so big? So all of the regular Baptists can sit in the back!

My two favorite radio guys: Roy D. Mercer, who pulls pranks -- Gregg turned me onto him...plays Roy D. Mercer tapes when we're driving places...just hiliarious. And then there's Joe Frank, of course, formerly on KCRW.
