Just for the record I don't get Halloween decorations. I am looking out of my window from my beautiful home in my wonderful neighborhood to find orange lights adorned with jack lanterns and goblins. I always enjoy the Christmas fuss the lights and ornamentation. I don't even worry about the commercialization of Christmas because I think it's fantastic that 2000 years after His birth, He is supporting a world wide economy. For me Christmas lights and the secular 'hymns' have become the new iconography (small 'i'). It draws even the more ornery types to holiday cheer. Even the most obstinate atheist can't resist buying his sweetheart a holiday gift. I'm just saying.
