What's all this business about French Christmas?

  • My name—Noël—has been mispronounced, mislabeled, and mistaken since my parents bestowed it upon me one snowy March afternoon. It wasn't until a friend nicknamed me "French Christmas" that it came into focus. How much would our lives change if we could just see things differently?

I hope the way I wrote about it was all right; writing about faith is tough! I want to be honest, but also respectful. Do you have the same experience?

Noel

Yes, I agree completely. It can be difficult writing about faith because you never know if you're going to offend someone or turn them off. It's a fine line sometimes. However, I've been pretty successful in talking about Lent without much backlash.

I was so confused for the first few paragraphs, and then when I realized what you were doing (clever!) I read back through again. OH. I love this post.
