This is the first Sunday of the Advent season for many Christians when faithful prepare for the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ, into this world as Priest, King and Savior by careful examination and inventory of their life in light of the coming of He by whom all was created and through whom all will be judged.  Seek the Lord while he is willing to be found and find healing.

 

Enjoy this Advent season and Christmas!

As a pagan, I wish those of similar beliefs a great Saturnalia or Yule, with the turning of the year.  To everyone else, the best to you: the blessings of Jesus, or Mithras, or whatever god or gods you worship, or none; the joy of your families, health, happiness--whatever is worth most to you, and to yours.

Just in case the Mayans were right....happy end of the world.

It is never too late to wish for Peace on Earth and Goodwill Towards Men.

One would sure hope not because if it ever does get too late for that then it won't make much difference what or whom you believe in or follow.

As fun as Saturnalia is, I just mark the winter solstice. That's an event everyone can agree is significant!

Though I agree with the sentiment, I believe there is a nicer way to put it: "And for the rest of us who don't believe in these religious proclemations, may you also have an enjoyable christmas/holiday with friends and family."

Happy holidays everyone.

For a second I thought the Advent were coming but then I saw the word "King" in the title and my hopes of becoming a slave to a hot psychic woman were crushed.

Shouldn't this go in the 'religion' forum?

Well, but it's not discussing religion.  It's offering a wish of joy for Christmas, which has been broadened since by those of us who come from alternative religious and non-religious faiths/backgrounds.

 

I'd just as soon offer up a wish that it doesn't get into the usual "my understanding of what lies behind and within the universe is greater than yours" BS that has been a standard feature of the human condition for two or three thousand years, and possibly longer.

I'm pretty sure that "prepare for the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ, into this world as Priest, King and Savior" is pretty religious.  Not just a generic merry Christmas.  That's discussing religion.  But, it doesn't really bother me.  When I hear people talk about their religion, I think about my childhood and how angry  other kids would get when I would tell them Pro Wrestling wasn't real, and I giggle.

If memory serves me, religious discussion is allowed in this sub forum.
