Traveling home for Christmas I came upon a hearse. Sad to think about on Christmas Eve Eve Day. But this hearse wasn’t carrying a dead body. It was carrying an old woman, and she was driving it. Emblazoned on the back I could read, “For the wages of sin is death.” A sign affixed to the roof admonished drivers, “Prepare To Meet Thy Maker.” (I really wanted to get a picture, but I was afraid I might get myself killed, and I didn’t want to give her the satisfaction.)

I found this a rather severe Holiday greeting, so to you I simply say “Merry Christmas!” Or if that offends you I say, “Stop getting offended so easily, and Appropriate Seasonal Festivities!”
