The Teachings of Xmas

There are some strange things happening in our society. All while I was growing up Christmas was considered the biggest holiday in the US.

They’ve likely always been around. Living things tend to be eco-dependent. We need other creatures to tend to our living by maintaining our environment and we need them to tend to our death as well.
