I make no apologies for celebrating Christmas. It’s my favorite time of the year, and I love celebrating all the traditions with my kids. I shouldn’t admit it, but I still get choked up singing Silent Night, and love David Bowie’s and Bing Crosby’s version of the Little Drummer Boy.
All of that being said, I am one atheist who is sick of the over commercialization of the Winter solstice. I don’t know if it’s because of religious pressure or what, but less and less stores are letting us enjoy the evil goodness of Halloween. The below cartoon provides us with a great way to have fun with all myths.
As funny as this is, it is actually quite biblical. The only problem is the zombies don’t appear until Easter.
51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
(Matthew 27:51-53, New King James Version)
I guess it’s time to come up with a Dawn of The Dead Easter figurine set.
