Last year I asked readers what they did about Christmas -- ignore? go all out? minimalize? -- and got some interesting answers. So I'll ask again -- what do you do about Christmas?
I'm a minimalist myself, mostly because going all out is too draining. My housemate, Miss Lucy, feels the same way, although being a cat she will take a fleeting interest in ribbons.
Blogger Jack Daw reports that he received a Jizo Bodhisattva card from a Pure Land church. So what's more Christmas-y -- grumpy Bodhidharma in a Santa hat or the Bodhisattva of the Hell Realm? Maybe we could put Pu-tai in a reindeer sleigh.
