Episode 156 - Christmas Grinches?: Extending the Holidays and The Nature of Gift Giving

In Episode 156, Keith and Justin are live in-studio as they discuss their attitudes toward the holidays. Is Christmas, with all of its trappings, still worth celebrating? What is it about the holidays that seem to bring out the worst in people? How is the extension of the holiday season related to the dilution of sacred time? Why does Justin find gift-giving awkward? And what does it mean to truly give a gift, and how does it relate to our faith? Listen to find out what we think! In the beginning, the guys talk about Justin's hectic travels, and how we're keeping ourselves from Star Wars spoilers. Finally, we wrap up the show by giving our final thoughts on the season and our upcoming third anniversary. As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast.
