Synchroblog Today

Redeeming the Season is the Topic for this month’s SynchroBlog. Now there are a variety of seasons being celebrated at the end of each year from Christmas to Hannukah to Eid al-Adha and Muharram, from the Winter Solstice to Kwanzaa and Yule. Some people celebrate none of these seasonal holydays, and do so for good reason. Below is a variety of responses to the subject of redeeming the season. From the discipline of simplicity, to uninhibited celebration, to refraining from celebrating, to celebrating another’s holyday for the purpose of cultural identification the subject is explored. Follow the links below to “Redeeming the Season.” For more holidays to consider see here –Phil Wyman, Synchroblog King.

I will be posting my little Synchroblog entry this afternoon (PST). It will be entitled, There’s something about Mary. In the meantime, check out the smart things the other synchrobloggers are saying about the season.

    Looking forward to your post rather than a 404 error message. BTW, your link for Matt Stone’s blog in the synchroblog list is not working at all.

    Ditto Gonnerman… Phil did a good job writing the intro, however. 🙂

    Hello Lisa,
    Yes, ma’am, I will. I’m sorry. I’ve hardly had time to write on this one myself, as you can see with my late post. But I should’ve thought of that with your recent post on Mary. Missing you.

    @ Adam G and Bryan Riley,
    I know, I know. I mucked the link thing all up, on all fronts. I hope I’ve fixed it now. Thanks!

Tell me something
