Christmas is a day to thank God for salvation of life from the confines of the physical universe. It is a day to be thankful for consciousness, the very core of our being and that it is not the slave of physical causation and that it extends past the bounds of physical being. It is a day to be grateful for the possibility of escaping the pain of evil through the Jewish prophetic tradition. It is a day to thank God for the way to do that, foremost as taught by Jesus, one of those prophets and more. Much more, the fulfillment of justice though love, the motive of the Law and the only secure means of transcending its possible harshness. It took me a life time to see that and I'm thankful that I did. Who needs superfluous presents after that? It's everything.
