Before you head off to Grandma’s house, vegan guru and indie dance machine Moby has some words for us on the spirit of Christmas. “I always hope that somehow we can see past the fun and awesome pagan trappings of Christmas (trees, mistletoe, December 25th, candy canes, etc.) to remember that on Christmas we celebrate the birthday (even if Jesus wasn’t actually born anywhere near December 25th) of a man who wanted us all to be more forgiving, more compassionate, less judgmental, less violent, and less materialistic,” Moby wrote in a blog post. “Ultimately Christmas is about celebrating the birthday of a man who wanted us to love one another and to look after one another — regardless of our religious or political or ethnic or gender differences…I hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas, regardless of how you choose to celebrate it (or not celebrate it).”
Happy Holidays, indeed.
