Reviews - What do customers think about Simplify and Celebrate: Embracing the Soul of Christmas?

THE MOST EXTENSIVE PUBLICATION BY THE "ALTERNATIVES" GROUP  Nov 25, 2009
The Alternatives for Simple Living organization ([...]) recommends that people celebrate holidays (not only Christmas, although that is a particular focus of theirs) in a less comsumeristic, less commercial, and more spiritual manner; this book (along with their other publications such as "Whose Birthday Is It Anyway?," that this site doesn't have a listing for) is aptly subtitled "Embracing the Soul of Christmas."

It criticizes the "Santa gives toys to good children" myth on the grounds that "What it teaches is bad for both poor and non-poor children. Poor children are told that they don't receive gifts because they are bad, while the non-poor are taught that they receive gifts because they are good. Both notions, equallly reprehensible, are part of the culture's Santa Claus theology."

The book asks provocative questions, such as, "Jesus once asked a question that may shed some light on this current dilemma with children. 'Which one of you, if your child asks for bread, would give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, would give him a scorpion?' We know the answer: no loving adult would feed a hungry child on a diet of stones and scorpions. But what is a parent to do if a child asks for a Voltron, a Gobot, or a Rambo doll? We believe that responsible, loving parents will refuse to feed a child's hunger for play on a diet of violence and savagery."

This book (along with others such as Unplug the Christmas Machine: A Complete Guide to Putting Love and Joy Back into the Season and Hundred Dollar Holiday: The Case For A More Joyful Christmas) is extremely helpful to keeping one's perspective on what REALLY counts at Christmas time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
