Pagan lights

Sometimes I think organized religion makes people crazy:

Homeowners in Hudsonville, Mich., have been singled out for displaying what an anonymous letter-writer calls “pagan” lights and decorations on their properties.

On Wednesday night, residents of Vintage Drive found a letter attached to their mailboxes suggesting that anyone with Christmas lights or decorations should re-think their beliefs, because Christmas displays honor the “Pagan Sun-God” and do not pertain to the birth of Jesus, according to ABC News affiliate WZZM.

The letters start out on a friendly note, with “Hi Neighbor, you have a nice display of lights.” But the self-described “love note” quickly changes tone, explaining how the “pagan tradition” of putting up lights began.

“I laughed because I think it’s ridiculous that people would get upset over Christmas lights,” said Danette Hoekman, who received the letter.
