The most important morpheme

One last Xmas thought, and this time a completely serious one: Why do so many people worry so much about keeping the Christ in Christmas? Seems to me that it’s actually more important (and probably more difficult) to keep the mass in Christmas.

Nah... the mass is easy. Why else would you have so many C&E Catholics?

(Oops... that was supposed to be a serious post. Darn reading comprehension...)

Well played even so, Heather, very well played.

In that regard, for the past two years, our family has only kept the mass in Christmas. Last year in Rome and this year in Barcelona. So much easier to find a Christmas mass to attend than our services. Plus, nothing will ever beat that High Mass given in Latin by a cardinal in a huge cathedral in Rome on Christmas morning. Ever.
