Happy Holidays, gang- Nancy writes However, I think I heard some people discussing this kind of thing and there was still an objection about Christmas in particular because it is the "dominant culture" in our country. While I agree that this is true, and am equally fed up with the commercialization, etc. of the holiday, I think it is unfair to single it out to be banned, or to ban all displays because of it. ______________________________ For me, I guess it comes down to how "ideologically" people want to live, and an issue of flexibility and tolerance. As the only one in our group not raised a Christian, I certainly share some negative feelings about xmas - but I also enjoy our tree, as long as I don't feel I have to create it. I don't want to live in reaction to a "dominant culture". I choose the parts of Judaism (how do you spell that?) that I celebrate, and I would like others to do similarly. I think these issues are going to be issues that depend on the particular values of each group - and how differences are resolved. No "should"s for me. I can't face more "issues" to discuss, either judy Judy Baxter, Monterey Cohousing Community, Twin Cities Area, Mpls/St.Paul MN (Mococo) baxter [at] epivax.epi.umn.edu Twin Cities CoHousing Network Voice Mail 612-930-7580 Voice Mail for Monterey Cohousing - 612-930-7554
