Merry Chr- Wait, what?

Have a satisfactory, non-denominational capitalist, winter time gift-giving season.

 

I hope the Executive Holiday Representative brings you many presents :]

Be sure to leave out the Non-fat soy milk, and salad!

 

 

For those of you who have no idea what the hell i'm talking about, you might not live in the United States. Here, our government are being such pussies about Christmas. NOTHING where I live is referred to as Christmas anything. We have "Holiday trees" and sh*t.

And I recently heard on the news they're trying to make the image of Santa a slimmer person! They say it makes kids obese. Well how about you make your fat little kids exercise once in awhile? It's not "Santa" that does it. I hate how nothing is anybody's fault anymore! "The videogames made me do it!" "Rap music makes me dress this way" "I do drugs because I saw it on TV"

I say that's BS. What is our world coming to?

I suppose you live in a city right? Out hear in the boondocks(the country for all you city-slickers)its never referred to as holiday trees or all the mumbo jumbo, always Christmas. But of course that's the mentality of a right orientated, mostly Christian community.

Well at least Festivus is still unharmed.

 

But I still say f*ck this Happy Holidays bullsh*t. Merry f*ckING Christmas, and if anyone gets offended, f*ck them. Do we get offended when they have their holidays? Do we start lawsuits? Not the last time I checked. So stop whining, and let us enjoy our f*cking holiday without trying to pussify the whole thing. They can't let us have our holiday, they have to hone in on our holiday. PC assholes.

The real sand in the gears came when it was proposed Santa stop his usual chant of "ho ho ho" because it could be considered offensive to women. I really wish I were joking, but that was proposed here.

Ho ho ho. xD

 

It's still Christmas around here (I don't live in the US, just in case you didn't notice). Not that I care much about it anyway, the only good thing about Christmas for me are gifts, the good food and street decoration. Still, Christmas in this country was never like in the US. You take it so seriously, we just take it as a "fancy" holiday, so if people decided not call it "Christmas" no one would care much. In our multicultural society, we learned to share and respect different values.

It's all about separating religion from government, which I whole-heartedly support.

The thing is, as most christians fear, Christmas isn't about Jesus being born anymore. It's about Santa Claus, his Reign deer, presents, stockings, etc. That's all it is about for me and practically everyone I know. No one gets together and sings happy birthday to Jesus on xmas (Full Metal Jacket, anyone?).

 

It's a hallmark holiday as it's put, it's all about buying and giving. I for one don't believe in christianity, but my kids sure as hell will have christmas. It'll be a frosty the snow man, Santa Claus type one. No nativity scenes, nothing like that.

 

As for it being in public places, sure. I say as long as you keep the religious aspect out of it, what's wrong with that? The only thing remotely religious about christmas trees is the word Christmas, but as I said above Christmas does not retain it's original meaning anymore, at least for most. Sure people think, "oh, it's the day jesus was born. Silent night, holy night, blah blah blah." But most people could give two sh*ts less. It's all about christmas cheer, egg nog and family time. Which is all good in my book! icon14.gificon14.gif

 

Oh, I can't wait for egg nog! biggrin.gif

 

@Sixdust, lol. Goes to show ya...

I've always taken a similarly non-religious stance on the day. For me it's an excuse to go to the beach and drink beers with my family. Because it falls in the middle of summer here, we don't even have that white Christmas image to cling to. It's about heat, booze, meat and family for me.

I say that's BS. What is our world coming to?

I already bought some eggnog and drank it up in 2 days. It was totally worth the 5 dollars, even though I'm broke right now.

 

Do you not like the variety I created? I think it's cool that people say what they want. Merry Christmas, holiday tree, Hanukkah spirit, whatev.

Whats the world coming to when we can't even celebrate christmas without it being toned-down (aka... s**t). Over here in the UK, a mother got arrested for letting her daughter call a teddy bear "Muhaamad" and on the news this morning, it was suggested that primary school children don't do nativity and instead do a celebration on other countrys celebrations... i say, f**k christmas... goverments taken all the joy out of it.

 

I'm pretty sure the world can't get any stupider.

That's not exactly what happened. Close though.

 

 

 

@topic: Santa Claus is fine, Christmas trees are fine, Merry Christmas is fine, but there are other holidays around the same time, so I'm all for "winter break" at school and "happy holidays" in public/gov't places.

Christmas is essentially a meaningless holiday, it isn't even the true supposed birth of Jesus, it's ancient christian propaganda meant to convert polytheistic Romans to christianity, due to the fact that the week of december 25th is the week of the pagan festival Saturnalia.

 

But now it's even lost it's pseudo-meaning, it's a corporate circle jerk whose sole purpose is to squeeze the last bits of money from the working class. The whole "happy holidays" thing doesn't bother me one bit, but neither does Merry Christmas, as an atheist I can honestly say that since they are all meaningless it doesn't affect me in any way. In fact I have respect for the unity, and caring brought by it, I've found, that no matter what religious preference one has, Christmas always makes you feel good, and caring, it just makes you feel like a better, more generous individual.

 

So happy Saturnalia mother f*ckers.
