I would like to offer a sincere apology to my readers today. In May, I made some comments in a post regarding religion. I stated that I would rarely do a feature post on the various religious observances because, since I am not an expert on religion, I was afraid of offending people by possibly conveying incorrect information. But yesterday as I was preparing yet another post about Christmas and it dawned on me that tomorrow is the last day of Chanukah, I realized that I was being a holiday blogger hypocrite and that it was probably more offensive to ignore another religion's holiday than to make an attempt to learn more about it and share what I learn. It's like I'm saying, "I want what is important to me to be important to you, but what is important to you is not important to me" and that just is not the case!
I'm going to try to do better. I'm still pretty nervous about conveying information in areas of unfamiliarity and would welcome any comments correcting mistakes I make, because it's important to me that my blog be a reliable source for accurate holiday and observance information.
I'm going to be upfront with you. I am a Christian, and I love all of the fun things that go along with Christmas and Easter, etc., and so my blog may tip a little heavier along the lines of the things I'm familiar with, but I promise to make a concentrated effort to learn more and share more about the various religious observances. If I come across religious observances that are complicated and beyond my realm of understanding I will steer clear of those but will always include reference links. Please stay tuned, and we will attempt to expand our horizons together! Fun, fun, fun!
And here's a start. :0)
