the nativity scene is still up in the entrance of the hospital where i toil.
one could question the propriety of putting up a nativity scene in a hospital that serves diverse cultures and religious faiths.
one could argue that if you display a nativity scene at all that you should also put up displays important to other religious faiths and cultures during this time of winter celebration. Bloomingdale's actually had some fantastic window displays this year doing just that. Each window depicted traditions from around the world, including Ireland, the Netherlands, and Kwanzaa.
one might draw the conclusion that keeping the nativity scene up in january is simply in poor taste. or perhaps it is just lazines in taking it down.
here's to a more tolerant, peaceful 2007, no matter where you are from, no matter what you believe.
