My friend Jamie wrote a blog post Where Can I Buy Hgh, on a topic I had been kicking around in the back of my mind on Easter Sunday. Hgh ebay, I chose to rant about the bat in the wall instead, but when I read her post and started to formulate the world’s longest comment, Hgh overseas, Hgh craiglist, I decided to just write about it here after all.
I think religion and how to celebrate holidays are tricky subjects for many parents, especially when the parents’ religious beliefs differ or when the family does not attend services/belong to an organized religion, 150mg Hgh, 500mg Hgh, yet wants to have something to celebrate at festive times of the year. We fall into both categories, 100mg Hgh, Hgh japan, as do many people we know.
In our non-religious household, we celebrate the arrival of Spring at Easter-time, 200mg Hgh. 20mg Hgh, We celebrate light, warmth and gathering with family at Christmas-time, Hgh coupon. 750mg Hgh, A winter holiday of light and a spring holiday celebrating the life cycle of birth, death, 30mg Hgh, Hgh india, and rebirth/renewal exist in many traditions in addition to Christianity, so it makes sense to us to mark these holidays, Hgh canada. And whether it’s because we grew up with it or because of some innate human need to imbue certain times of the year with religious significance, it just feels right to be celebrating at these times.
Families are all about compromise and blending, Where Can I Buy Hgh. Hgh us, Holidays, to us, Hgh usa, Hgh mexico, are all about family and tradition. While a Solstice celebration would probably be more in line with where I am on the religious/spiritual spectrum, Hgh uk, Hgh paypal, Matt and I chose instead to pass along many of the Christmas traditions we grew up celebrating in our own families. Same with Easter: we don’t go to church but we do dye eggs and get together with both our families, 40mg Hgh. 10mg Hgh, By incorporating some of the popular elements of these holidays, I feel we honor the families/traditions we come from, Hgh australia, 1000mg Hgh, and by adding our own unique elements and explanations, I feel we are adapting these traditions in a way that is meaningful for us, 250mg Hgh. Where Can I Buy Hgh, (I look forward to further “customizing” our family celebrations as the kids get older. 50mg Hgh, This whole topic is something I very much want to discuss with them, when we get there.)
I do wonder sometimes if it seems hypocritical or even offends people that we celebrate Christmas and Easter without much mention of Jesus. When we talk about Jesus, we describe him as a great teacher and leader, who emphasized peace and love. We’ve told Siena that Christmas celebrates his birth and Easter commemorates his death. (Sort of like a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, she probably thinks.)
As she grows older and learns more of the story behind these days, she will come to understand that many, many people see Jesus as much more than a great leader, Where Can I Buy Hgh. And she may decide she agrees with them. Or she may decide she believes something totally different. We just want to be sure she is the one deciding what feels right for her. (Elliot too, of course, assuming he ever sits still long enough to learn anything about any religion.)
The last thing we would want to do is offend anyone who sees these holidays as sacred and our interpretation as irreverent, but we feel like this is a good starting point. We've tried to be age-appropriate and sensitive to all beliefs in our explanations. We look forward to our kids' experiencing many different religious traditions and teachings, and we look forward to hearing what they think and what answers will resonate with them..
