I hope you people are proud of yourselves. I just heard that holiday retail sales will be the worst in maybe forty years. It was our, and by our, I mean your responsibility to go out and spend money, you may not actually, have buying tons of crap people don't want, in order to assuage our (mostly your) guilt. You people are failures. It's no wonder this country is a mess. In other news, I heard an interesting argument about Christmas today. It was on a radio program. On one hand are some Christian-type people who are pissed that Jesus has been shoved out of Christmas by money grubbing capitalists and secularists. Or so they claim. Santa is not Jesus, as I understand their complaint. Who knew? On a side note, a plea to either guy will get you about the same result. Okay, that was uncalled for. On the other hand are some Christian-type people who are pissed because some other Christian-type people include Santa in their Christmas celebration. As previously noted Santa is not Jesus. On the third hand, are the people who are pissed because all Christian-type people have latched on to a perfectly good pagan mid-winter celebration and turned it into a religion fest. I have just one question. Who has three hands? Here is a link for the freakiest among those who have an axe to grind with the whole mid-winter/solstice/Christmas celebration. You will have copy and paste the link and then scroll down the article to find the video. Blogger won't allow me to hot link the page. Evidently they hate Santa too. http://www.layscience.net/node/421 And remember two things this holiday season. Santa is not Jesus and Jesus is not Santa, and God hates fags and apparently likes ignorant white trash assholes, at least according to the ignorant white trash assholes. Merry whatever to one and all! Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

Santa is a Saint, so that should count for something. I love Saint Nicholas, always have always will ! He made sure I got books, toys and candy when my parents didn't have two nickels to rub together. He has reindeer too. he's great!


and I bought lots of crap, well it was better than crap, it was stuff to stimulate the economy.

What's to complain about, they sell jesus as much as they sell santa ; (

Maybe more so, which is ironic itself, isn't it?

Cheers to you and yours ; )

When I was a kid, Santa was a guy at the Moose lodge who smelled like beer.

This is hilarious.

I always wondered (grew up Jewish) what a snow covered evergreen tree and a guy wearing a fur suit, in a sleigh pulled by reindeer, had to do with Bethelehem where I doubt it ever snows, or maybe just about as often as it does in Hooterville.

I feel bad for retailers this Christmas but I feel so good for those of us who managed to let go of the shopping frenzy. Good for us, good for the planet.

You know everyone who lives a certain distance away from the equator celebrates the return of the light, some more than others, but there's a ritual for it in all the cultures I know about it. I don't believe anything has been stolen from the pagans. Variety in celebration is the spice of life.
