Benedict XVI also claims angels never sang to the shepherds to proclaim Christ birth's - trashing the much-loved carol 'Hark! The herald angels sing' in the process.

Heck, I didn't need the Pope to tell me that. Our Pastor in my childhood Baptist church taught us that all the way back in the 1970s... the Bible says the angels "spoke". They didn't sing.

Even so, I like the Christmas carols and other traditions, even if many aren't rooted in pure fact.


After all, all those kids are 'entitled' to be showered with piles of gifts, most of which won't be used more than a few hours if that....before being 'stored away' or given away or forgotten...or exchanged.....

Or broken... tee hee.


Dang...nore donkeys....I mean, if there is no Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer,other flying reindeer, and the rest of the whole bit..... the whole holiday is shot.......

I had a Rudolph sock puppet when I was little. It had a big bright round red nose. My mom used to entertain me by wearing the puppet and talking funny... heh.
