Celebrate the stuff

Celebrate the stuff.  Use fudge and eggnog and wine and roast beef.  Use presents and wrapping paper.  Embedded in many of the common complaints you hear about the holidays (consumerism, shopping, gluttony, etc.) are false assumptions about the point of the celebration. You do not prepare for a real celebration of the Incarnation through thirty days of Advent Gnosticism.  (Wilson, God Rest Ye Merry, 89-90)
