    Saw this "Christmas one of many joys" article over the holidaze: Philadelphia Eagles starting right tackle Winston Justice.
    THIS YEAR, I am experiencing many "firsts." This past Saturday was my first real snowstorm. Growing up in California, I never saw a snowfall like the one this past weekend. Wow! I couldn't believe I had to drive 15 mph on the highway just to stay safe and keep in the lane.
    I also grew up not celebrating any holidays. From birthdays to Thanksgiving, because I was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, my family did not observe these days. So, believe it or not, Christmas is still a very new experience for me. Soon after I got into the NFL, I became a Christian. Now, I am excited for the presents, and I love the time you get to spend with friends and family and all the traditions that come along with this special holiday. Most important, I realize that Christmas is a time to remember and be thankful for the birth of Jesus Christ.

    Last I heard Mark McCumber was not associated actively with the witnesses, though 1 of his brothers is still quite active.

    The parent McCumbers were good friends with my parents.

    The whole thing was a hoot, but I'm really impressed by Samantha Bee's take on the JWs! The 144,000 saved for "top contributors"! Hah! Obviously gets that its a sales program!
