A Belly Laugh On Christmas Day
Jehovah's Witnesses do not celebrate Christmas.
As a matter of fact, neither did the earliest Christians.
On Christmas Day 2019 two middle+ aged J.W's (a woman and a man) were making their quiet witness in Arlington Park. They sat quietly on a bench opposite the dog park, with an easel which announced their presence, waiting with patience in the event that some person would care to hear their witness.
As I walked by the woman made a wee fuss of Zion, and the three of us said hallo,
Then, knowing that J.W's do not observe Christmas, and with twinkle in my eye I said "Happy Wednesday"
The man caught my humour and burst into a great belly laugh. He knew that I was not being unkind.
"You caught my humour" I said, "Oh yes" he replied, and this time the woman joining him, we all laughed again.
