I was glancing through a catalog and I saw a Christmas ornament with the words “Merry Christmas From Heaven”. I looked closer and saw the words in the center are, “I love you all dearly, so don’t shed a tear, I’m spending my Christmas with Jesus this year.”
I did a mental double-take. What?!? Is it just me? Or is that hugely inappropriate? I have put ornaments on the tree that remind me of certain people. Or as tributes, even. But, I presume that the first Christmas — if not the first few — without someone would be made even harder by such an ornament. Maybe it’s just me.
