Damn right! You must "realize that without "rain", there can never be a rainbow - it's impossible to know how to live happily and good until you've experienced life, where you've had no control...loved ones death, rejection from family, loved ones addictions, other's hate, people who don't get it yet and can't forgive! You need it all to learn how to face life's tragedies and it's beauty!
True it seems backwards because if he wasnt born he couldn't have died and risen again. But it's also correct this way because true if he hadn't died and risen again his birth would not have been celebrated as he wouldnt be the savior. But beings that he WAS born and he DID die and he HAS risen....I don't think it matters which way it is. =D
