So I was driving along today and saw an Easter banner hanging in front of a house and my gut reaction was "ugh". I mean tomorrow is Palm Sunday and we have to kill Jesus off before we can be happy he came back, you know. Same thing goes with Christmas songs. We should all sing "so glad the baby is born songs" to women who are still anticipating the pains of labor.
As a convert to Catholicism I have found the hardest thing is not obedience, not all the birth control stuff . . . the hardest darn thing is not singing Christmas carols in church during Advent. Then when it is finally liturgically "cool" to sing them the rest of the world has moved on and doesn't want to hear it anymore.
