Views

Quotations: I must confess that I feel the fascination of each one of these Christmas. I know that I’m an idiot, but the most naive Christmas carols make me full of joy. I like the pagan Carnival, and I’m deeply moved by the poetry of the crèche. I also see the greatness and the mystery of Byzantine icons, and even the consumeristic Christmas, which is habitually despised by intellectual people, makes me happy like a child.

Some years ago, I was wondering whether I should send a Christmas card to a friend of mine who is an orthodox Jew. In the while, I got a Christmas card from him. When we met in person, I asked whether he celebrates Christmas. “Of course I don’t” he replied but he added that he thought that the best answer to religious idiosyncrasies was not to regulate greetings but to expand them to everybody, independently of any philosophical or religious belonging. I liked his argument and now I use the same argument when someone tries to convince me to employ the frigid formula “Seasonal Greetings” (and since then, I have never forgotten to wish my friend “Hanukkah Sameach!”).
