Its Raider Game day so we need to give great energy to the Chiefs.


Also today is the first Sunday in Advent. Advent is essentially the month leading up to Christmas when Christians worldwide celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus.

Many Christians in the United States attend a church service on the first Sunday of Advent and may engage in activities such as special prayers and contributing to ideas on enhancing peace. Many Advent traditions are observed in the United States in the prelude to Christmas Day. For example, the Advent wreath is becoming increasingly popular in the United States. The wreath can be seen in various churches across the nation around this time of the year.

Advent calendars of all designs are also given as gifts at this time of the year. The calendars feature openings in the form of windows or doors that are numbered to count the days to Christmas. Calendars may contain chocolates, toys, or candy and are given to children as a fun way to observe the Christmas countdown. Some traditional Advent calendars show 24 days but many Advent calendars showing 25 days, with the last opening on Christmas Day.

The church year begins in September 1 in many eastern Christian churches, so Advent begins at a different time to when it starts in the western churches. The eastern equivalent of Advent is called the Nativity Fast, which runs for 40 days.

That's what's great about the season that basically started last week or so. You can celebrate your faith, family, friendships, or anything

Even put up a pagan Christmas tree—or multiple ones like Melania has at the WH.

I got a chuckle out of it. So I guess that's a yes.

I actually like her Christmas trees and decorations. Just saying it comes from pagans to troll HCF.

Perhaps that's why pagan traditions remained even as Christianity took hold. ...
...but it clearly derives from the pagan practice of bringing greenery indoors to decorate in midwinter. ...

3. The Church was slow to embrace Christmas

Despite the spread of Christianity, midwinter festivals did not become Christmas for hundreds of years. The Bible gives no reference to when Jesus was born, which wasn't a problem for early Christians, Nissenbaum said.

"It never occurred to them that they needed to celebrate [H]is birthday," he said.

Q: why wasn’t Jesus born in Mexico?

A: god couldn’t find 3 wise men or a virgin there
