I have NEVER, EVER equated "Christmas lights" with "religion." To me--a guy who grew up poor-- they were a sign that you either owned stock in the electric utility, or you had more money than you knew how to spend wisely...or both. From what I read of the Nativity in the "good book," I don't think audacious and tasteless displays of lights had anything to do with the original event. In fact, I don't see any references there to Santa Claus or reindeer or sleighs, either. So I fail to see how a lack of those decorations has any correlation to a lack of "religiosity" in America [or elsewhere]...

At my house, I no longer decorate for Christmas...and here's why: in 1992, my first wife passed away 5 days after Christmas. After New Year's Day--and after the funeral--taking down those decorations was one of the most difficult and sad things I ever did. So no one else in my household has to go through that experience, I no longer decorate for Christmas.

And my lack of irrational, "celebratory" lighting has NOTHING to do with religion. But it has a LOT to do with NOT being wasteful of either electricity OR money.

That was certainly an insightful reply...

Is there something in particular you disagree with?
