No Immaculate Birth

For whatever reason, when ever I think of the Christmas story I always think of a traditional nativity scene...with various elements, but the most important one's being that Mary and Joseph were in a stable with Jesus in a manger.

It wasn't until yesterday I thought..."how did Jesus get into the manger?"

Then I realized that Mary actually gave birth in the the stable yesterday...I instantly connected it with the birth of Claire Littleton's baby Aaron in Season 1 of Lost.

My wife and I are almost done with the first season of Lost but watching Emile de Ravin give birth on a uncivilized Island was horrible...and just think instead of of Kate (Evangeline Lily) playing mid-wife...Joseph had to play mid-wife amongst the animals, hay, and feces. That's kind of disgusting.

first off, rc, i gotta say, Merry Christmas to you and yours.

second off, i gotta say, Mary's is the immaculate conception. (it may help to think of Madonna's Immaculate Collection best-of set.)

You are watching LOST like my parents. I almost think you are cheating. You should be suffering like the rest of us watching it week-by-week.

I started watching Lost regularly but then missed two or three weeks, so then I had to start over from scratch. DVD is a good way to go, though, so you can catch things you missed the first time around. And you'll miss plenty of things the first time around.
