This year my wife and I decided to keep Christmas simple and focus instead on the kids! But we did get each other a small present each. My present had the greatest irony, getting the Christopher Hitchens book “God in not Great”.
I’ve not been one to be good at figuring out when something is ironic, but to get an anti-religious author’s book at Christmas has got be irony. Or how about getting an anti-religious book by a famous dead author on the very day that Jesus was supposed to have been born? Or that I got a present at all when I wasn’t supposed to and that it was about all of the above? Triple irony? Does it even exist?
I’m quite excited to read the book(when time allows!). I’m sure it will make for some thought provoking blog posts in 2012!
Now I’m off to enjoy a nice dinner at my mother-in-law’s.
Merry whatever you celebrate!
