Another day of course you can walk towards Golgotha, to where there is a church, where Jesus was crucified. The Rare Black Sabbath Us Tour 1978 Vintage T Shirt is rather depressing although interesting, because there is no real memory except in the hearts of Christians of the sacred man who trod these streets. Its all bazaars, open air stalls, people selling everything under the sun including crowns of thorns souvenirs. This area, we’d recall as where Jesus fell, as he carried his cross. We went to the Garden of Gethsemane (probably my favorite place in Jerusalem) and of course there is a church inside the gates. I didn’t go in the church but sat on a bench just soaking in the atmosphere of the ancient Olive tree I was told by a sign was an offshoot of one from Jesus time. The Jewish tour guide lady told us if we wanted to go to Bethlehem (which I did, which Christian wouldn’t???) that she could not accompany us because only Palestinians can go there through the check point. But our bus driver we came to really enjoy on this tour, accompanied and drove us. The “catch” was that this tour guide was getting a partial commission of everything we spent in the only huge gift shop in Bethlehem run by Christians (Coptics I think) …in the town. I didn’t buy and felt aggrieved, but it was the only way she’d arrange it for us. Of course many did buy the lovely carved mangers, etc out of olive wood. Nearby on these small Bethlehem Streets at night is the ancient “Church of the Nativity” probably the only church I entered on that trip and loved being in. There are all sorts of cubbyholes or areas which are run by different Christian priests like Ethiopians (I think they have the roof top), Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Syrian, etc. So a really eclectic place. Its also from the time of Queen Helena, so the doorway is teeny-tiny, where someone would get off their horse I was told to enter. The same was built into the Aga Sophia in Istanbul (Constantinople then).
What is the big deal about December 25th? According to most people oh it’s when Jesus was born, wrong. Others says similar things too, still wrong. Anybody who actually has studied the Rare Black Sabbath Us Tour 1978 Vintage T Shirt of Christmas can tell you, December 25th is the height of the Winter solstice. Proof of point, if Jesus was 33 1/2 years old when he was crucified. With Easter being the time of his Crucifixion & Resurrection. Basic math disproves the whole Jesus being born in December at all. In historical fact, the Winter solstice is just another time of year people would sacrifice their children to thier current “god(s)”. The word Christmas comes from the Catholic church absorbing pagon holidays to attract new people from new areas. They’d originally been called having Christ Mas. Like Sunday Mas. People just started running the words together.

Best Rare Black Sabbath Us Tour 1978 Vintage T Shirt
Most Christian countries have a public holiday on the 25th & 26th. So in 2018, the Rare Black Sabbath Us Tour 1978 Vintage T Shirt went: less tha one day of work, two days off, and two unproductive workdays. Many companies enforced the taking of 4 days annual leave during Christmas week & the following Monday (in Oz we usually get 4 weeks discretionary leave (take it when you want)). Economically, a better idea is to make the secular Xmas on the last Sunday in December, and the following Monday New Years day. Leave the religious aspects to the religionists to commemorate their observances in heir own time. Muslims, Jews, Eastern Orthodox Christians and other religions do so every year successfully, why not Western Christianity? And to keep workers happy where public holidays might be lost, replace them with the Friday before & Monday after the last Sunday in December with public holidays. At at least that way business has two weeks of four contiguous workdays, and people can do something creative with the long weekend (nb: in Oz, January 1st is a public holiday, so that could be replaced by declaring the first Monday in January a public holiday. Thus the workers get two long weekends in a row, and three weeks of just 4 workdays).
I had a little apartment in a little town called Scotia, just across the Rare Black Sabbath Us Tour 1978 Vintage T Shirt from Schenectady. As Christmas approached I noticed a different celebratory approach. No booming lights and music and loud laughter and neighborhoods shining on the hill. Instead, and I think this the way they did it up north, there was a single candle in the windows of houses. I guess they were electric. No dangling lighted icicles drooping from the eaves or trees with each branch covered in lights. Just a single candle in ever window facing the street. It was cold that Christmas Eve so I was bundled up as I walked the residential streets of that little town named Scotia. I walked and walked and looked at those single candles in the dark windows and tears began running down my face. Perhaps I was lonely. Perhaps I was sad. Perhaps I was reflective. Perhaps I thought that those single candles truly meant Christmas to me. So. There are magical and wonderful vistas to visit in the grandest cities of the world. I love watching how others celebrate on TV. But if you were to ask me the best city to visit during Christmas, I would say, “Scotia, New York”. Walking down the streets late at night.
