Lingua Sacra Publishing, which publishes several of my books, has dramatically overhauled the main web site, declaring instead of Black Friday, Advent as an appropriate time to buy books from the heart for loved ones.
With stories of frustrated shoppers assaulting each other with pepper spray, it's easy to forget that the so-called "commercialization" of Christmas is merely the perversion of a reasonable impulse. Who doesn't love getting a present? If our Tradition graces the celebration of the Nativity with gift-giving, let us not allow the excesses of a few to invalidate the whole.
So buy gifts for those you love. [Here comes a shameless plug.] Buy my books as gifts for those you love.
You can find them at the new website for Lingua Sacra Publishing.
