I guess I shouldn't have been surprised given his recent conversion to Egyptian mythology, but Andrew (8) made an Anubis holiday card this week in Cub Scouts. We were making pop-up cards out of construction paper. His had a pop-up head of a jackal (Anubis), resplendent with a red and green collar for the holidays, next to a Christmas tree.
It was a nice mix of two pagan religious symbols and is probably as Christian as other symbols associated with Christmas like the yule log and mistletoe, appropriated from pagan ritual.Posted by Tony at December 17, 2005 8:52 PM | TrackBack
