Twas 2 weeks before Christmas...

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Dec 12, 2003

Why is the Pope having a Christmas concert in the Vatican in the third week of Advent? In New York, St. Patrick's Cathedral had lighted Christmas trees at the front doors on Thanksgiving. Most parishes routinely have Christmas in Advent.

It is bad enough that St. Patrick's "day" (which now extends to a couple of weeks) has ruined Lent. As St. Paul used to say, Humbug!
