My pet hate is treading in dog muck. Sorry couldn't get into it! Thanks all the same! Col.

Blessings for Christmas!
Okay, this is very different. Extremely different. I'm not sure how on-topic you were. I do have to say, though, it was out-of-the-box. Not your usual Christmas story.
Yes, this definitely was just a tad different. Maybe a little too 'out of the box'. However, I can see what you are getting at; and yes, Christ came because of the 'mess' we got ourselves into and don't have the ability to clean ourselves up.

I love the clever wordplay, and the Seuss-Grinch-like phrases. It took me two reads but I think I see where you are coming from. We have to look at - really see - the crap in our lives before the potential for new life can be realized. And Christ covers up our crap, washes us white as snow.

I did find it hard to believe that Timmy had been storing the wall for years and his parents never smelled the evidence? Small matter - doesn't affect the meaning of your story..or does it? I never know with you, brother. :)
Humanity involves sweat and poo and snot and all sorts of ickiness--or it wouldn't be a true Incarnation, would it? I gotcha.
Once I got past the title, which drew my interest and grossed me out at the same time. . . , I actually really like this. It is an interesting way to sum up the "reason for the season", but I absolutely appreciate the intentional message here.
Very interesting POV. The message is right on. I got it.
