    Hello all

    I just wanted some opinions on whether I should go to church on Christmas Sunday? I am a baptized Christian who hasn't been to church in 15 years. But I feel like I should go this year.

    Should I go?

    Merry Christmas Sherdog!

    Religion is a crutch for the weak minded.

    we used to go to midnight mass on xmas eve when I was growing up.
    this was after a night of drinking at O'Hara's Bar on Cherry Lane.
    it was a great way to sober up before going home.

    If you want to be around those people and in that place, at that time.

    Otherwise you can go to church anywhere, anytime, right where you are.

    Went with my aunt and uncle (they wanted to see their nephews around that time so we hung out) about a year after my dad passed one Christmas and it was really nice. If you don't have an adhd problem it could be therapeutic.

    @Mondo Freaks I think that if you're feeling like you might want to go, or for whatever reason need to go, then you should go.

    So that leads to the question, why do you feel like you should go this year?

    Well that's probably a good enough reason to go.

    So it's a desire to make your mom happy rather than some internal spiritual need.

    I agree with this but voted no. I'm a complicated man. Really though, I have issues with organized religion but no issue with people that find comfort in organized religion. Please see my earlier comment about being complicated.

    Sure, then go to a Wiccan sabbath too cause it was a pagan holiday to begin with.

    Its going to be really packed. I remember as a kid going with my folks, and we had to stand near the back, due to volume of attendance. No benches or seats.
