9th Day: Dear Mary Mug
holy family tea bags
Poor Mary. She features quite a lot these days in standup routines by comedians who get easy laughs out of the Christian faith. And actually, this is a very funny joke. Imagine someone's refusal to face facts leading to wise men, shepherds, camels, a remote-controlled star, an angry king – the whole gold, frankincense and myrrh.

But if anyone thinks this is a laugh at the expense of the Christmas story, they ought to think again, because the Gospels and 1001 nativity plays got there first. Joseph really did think Mary had knocked off with someone else, and things really did get seriously out of hand... but in a good way.

So this is just to say thanks, mug makers, for telling the Christmas story for us.
