The point is I dont think you me or whoever gets to decide what celebrating is for others. I think its a majority that do nothing more than I said (I dont know anybody that does anything more) and the people that do those things are a vast minority in my life circles anyway.
Also of that vast minority that "I" know that do those things or even attend a mass "some" of them have said themselves they just go to do it, to be seen, for the social side not to "celebrate" "religiously"
again my disclaimer these are only the people "I" know so take it for what it is but Ill just go on record saying this, I wont say he is right cause he may very well be wron
if I was making a bet Id put my money on him being closer to reality than I ever would you saying he is "quite staggeringly" wrong and it is "indeed wishful thinking"
