The Christmas season is a minefield of terrors: The family get-togethers with weird uncles, the sloppy office parties, the annoying 10-page Look-at-Us holiday letters and we haven t even mentioned the Black Friday mobs and that wretched Alvin and the Chipmunks song that plays every 90 minutes on Pandora, whether you like it or not. Rum-pah-pah-pum.
And don t forget the PC police lurking around every corner looking to beat the last bits of joy and comradery out of our society. Merry Christmas? Really?
But it doesn t have to be this way. 'Tis the season to recapture the wonder of Christmas, in our hearts and in our homes and even out in the public square. "The Christmas Virtues" is a humorous companion for, and guide to, navigating the trials and tribulations of the holiday season. It s a reminder of how we can embrace the joy, hope, and love of Christmas of the real Christmas.
And a call for us to stand up for Christmas because America needs it now, more than ever.
