Maybe there’s snow falling on Christmas Day. Maybe acid rain, or regular rain. Maybe nothing.
Perhaps in your family, you decorate the tree the day after Thanksgiving, or you wait until Christmas Eve, or you drag a still-tinseled artificial tree down from the attic some day, in between a Broncos game.
Or maybe you even call it something else. Or celebrate just a bit differently.
Or, of course, you might not have a tree at all, or care what the weather is like unless you’re hoping to ski or sunbathe or ride your bike to get some donuts for some sugar, since you don’t have any candy canes, only to discover it is, like most businesses, closed.
The winter holidays – Christmas, Hanukah, solstice, the whole secularized bundle – have evolved. Culturally, whatever faith or custom we align with, we’re a little more about shopping than the pioneers, or even the conquistadors, who would have laughed at the tiny Zale’s boxes that please us so.
Individually, without any semblance of universal ideology – although Universalist ideology is growing in popularity – we’re left to our own devices, as they say, be these devices Christmas lights, Menorahs or iPod Nanos.
