The Changing Baby Names of Christmas: Noel, Meet Messiah

What's a proper Biblical name for your Christmas baby? Bible names are a core part of English naming tradition. John and Mary alone once accounted for a quarter of all babies born in England. Yet there's one key name that English baby naming tra...

Who (or What) Did Your Fetus Look Like?

All newborns look like deformed lizards. For whatever reason, parents just don't realize it (otherwise, why would they take the screaming little lizard home from the hospital with them?) But what about before they come out of the womb? Who -- or what...

GPS Prevents Thefts of Baby Jesus

Sure, it sounds hysterical, but leave it to modern technology to solve a long-standing problem around the holidays. No, I'm not talking about how Santa's sleigh makes it to the houses of good boys and girls the world over in one night. Rather, I'm...

Which is the Best Christmas Carol?

Ah, Christmas carols. These days they start the sun-up after Halloween and carry is through most if not all of December. Some radio stations play nothing but Christmas carols throughout the holiday season. We get a kick out them, find them nostalgic...

Do Shy Kids Ruin Nativity Plays?

My response to that is, well, what's NOT to be ruined about nativity plays? I can't stand them, myself, and I was raised Catholic (so you'd think I'd be all about them). I probably feel this way because as a child in Catholic school I was relegated ...

Kanye West's mom compares her son to Jesus

Is Tom Cruise your new Jesus?

One of the world's most famous celebrity parents has a really big fan that's selling t-shirts, mugs, and more, all inspired by the couch-jumping father/Scientology fanatic. All the items read "Tom Cruise Is My New Jesus." My personal favorite is t...

British kids don't connect Christ with Christmas

A recent poll found that only 44% of British kids ages 11 to 17 know that Christmas, at it's core, is a celebration of the birth of Jesus. For better or for worse, this isn't why a number of families celebrate the holiday anymore, so I suppose these...

Is Charlie Brown taking Christ out of Christmas?

Many of you probably watched the Charlie Brown Christmas Special on TV last night (if not, Nadine found a great Charlie Brown video to tide you over 'till next year). For decades it's been must-watch holiday fare -- probably right up there with It's ...

Creative approaches to keeping teens interested in religion

Adolescence is a time of physical and emotional development. What was once near and dear in earlier years sometimes becomes loathed and unwanted during the teenage years. One such example of this is religion. For quite a few teens religion can repres...

Blogging Baby Sleepover post: Tuesday, October 24

I am always on the lookout for a sassy bit of a new blog to read. Since some of my friends are dimly aware that I string words together for pay, some of them willingly send me links to blogs they think might interest my warped sense of humor. Followi...

Mother-to-be has Jesus in her belly

My mother-in-law was convinced that Jared waved at her. In the ultrasound. There was something that could have been an arm and it might have moved... but she was certain he waved at her. People see what they want to see, it seems. That was, I think, ...
