  • 'It often feels like Christmas in Sweden is only about presents' (iPads for 3-year olds!?)

    Deep down inside we all regret the fact that we have turned Christmas, originally a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, into a feast of consumption. Americans view themselves as being the worst example of this attitude and behavior. But are they? Perhaps there are nations even worse. Below, a report from an American ex-pat living in my home country, Sweden. The article; "Rampant holiday consumerism is hard to avoid, writes US-native and parent Rebecca Ahlfeldt, as she struggles to reconcile competing Swedish and American Christmas traditions in finding gifts for her children. Our family has entirely too much...

The hours are 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 3 p.m. Sunday."We are pleased that we get so many new pieces to add each year. We like to make changes and create new arrangements each holiday. New this year, we are adding a Christmas tree to hang the many little Nativity ornaments on. It will look beautiful," said Teri Montgomery, event co-coordinator along with Nancy...

    Some few generations ago, men in America as well as Europe themselves actually slaughtered live pigs, ducks, hens and calves for Christmas by their own hand. Or, at least, their local butcher did so for them. Today, even the inhabitants of India, once an extremely poor nation, buy their meat pre-packed and wrapped up in plastic at local supermarkets. Sweden is no exception to the rule, but at least we Scandinavians get in touch with our inner Viking eating habits once a year. The article from "Does anybody actually eat pig's feet? Why do Swedes think of porridge as...
  • Baby Jesus ousted from St. George Ferry Terminal

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- The Christ is out of Christmas at the St. George Ferry Terminal. In what Catholics see as political correctness run amok, the city Department of Transportation (DOT) has removed a Nativity scene from the terminal, with an agency spokesman saying that the display was not authorized to be there. But a menorah, marking the celebration of Hanukkah, and a Christmas tree remain on display in the terminal. Catholics said the move was a nightmare before Christmas. "We take this as a tremendous affront," said Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, a watchdog of religious and...

    CUDDLES the two-year-old labrador is recovering at home after swallowing Christmas decorations, costing her owners thousands of dollars in vet operations. A typical labrador with a big appetite, Cuddles thought all her Christmases had come at once, the Herald Sun reports. Tell us: What strange things has your dog eaten? A "scarf" made from baubles and ribbon tossed around a stuffed toy reindeer's neck looked tantalising, like festive food good enough to eat. Several days - and a budget-blowing $7000 - later, Cuddles is sore and sorry with a belly full of stitches.

    Angie O'Neill recently moved into a new apartment complex for seniors and she's trying to make new friends. But Christmas is a tough time of year for an atheist. "All the planned activities at this time of year revolve around the church," said O'Neill, a retiree and an atheist for decades. O'Neill sought an escape this week, joining a group of her fellow nonbelievers for a weekly "Atheist Happy Hour" at a suburban Mexican restaurant. The group, Atheists for Human Rights, is active year-round but takes it up a notch this time of year with a Winter Solstice party, a...

    Thanksgiving is over and Black Friday has arrived. With the Christmas season now semiofficially upon us, tradition dictates that consumers flood shopping malls and online marketplaces to buy everything in sight. At the same time, politically motivated busybodies stop at nothing to distract from, deny or delete any references to that Jesus guy who may or may not have inspired the holiday known as Xmas. The "X" stands for we can't remember what. Every year, chain stores, schools, local town councils, advertisers and others needlessly put themselves in the middle of the Christmas censorship debate in an effort to appease...
