Hansel and Gretal were forced into the deep dark wood, where they meet a witch who brings them to a wonderful gingerbread house; only to find evil in the most pleasant of Gingerbread Houses.
But what of the witch? She is described as a heinous specimen, for which had no right in doing those evils so described. But, didn't she have a right to these castaways? Didn't she feed them, in a time of famine? House them from the evil black forest? So were they hers to eat? Wink. Wink. Nod. Nod.
So what does this have to do with Christmas?
First, I have noticed some awesome looking gingerbread houses for sell at our local Publix Grocery Store.
Second, during this time and season, there are plenty of young children who's parents have abandoned them to the wiles of the world. This year we must think of them when we are having a grand time with our family. We must also be thankful for the times we get to spend with our family, and the gifts we lovingly can give to each other.
