A Note on Our Mention of Religious Holidays and Symbols
This recording is not meant to impose Christmas or any religious ideas on anyone. It is a poem recited here for literary and aesthetic reasons, as well as due to it being traditional. The words and symbolism contained are also of a secular nature per many scholars. We respect ALL religious beliefs and traditions, and we follow the principle that state is separate from religion.
