The Christian Noob (n00b)

turkey, the holy bird

Many Christians in many parts of the world celebrate Christmas (happy birthday Jesus) with special feasts eating particular foods based on culture, tradition and/or society. In the US, the celebration of Christmas — as well as Thanksgiving — includes eating turkey.

When did eating the flesh of animals become part of any Christian celebration — especially Christmas? Maybe it’s time to spare a turkey (or any other animal, for that matter) and join Jesus in a temple during the celebration of God’s incarnation and coming to earth.

Better yet, celebrating Christmas with a vegetarian dinner might even be a better idea. Why should we slaughter an animal to celebrate the coming of God? Shouldn’t we better celebrate God by celebrating His creation?

By the way, if you’re in NYC, come and join me at FAPC to celebrate Christmas. I hope to see you there.
