My wife was doing some last minute shopping at a large department store yesterday. The women checking her out said “Happy Holidays.” My wife noticed she had a forlorn look when she said it. My wife responded “Merry Christmas.” The lady checker very quietly said “Merry Christmas” back, so no supervisor would hear her, then smiled. How sad our country has denigrated to this point in the name of PC, which for some reason seems only to apply to Christians.

I always say Merry Christmas, especially to the twits that tell me Happy Holidays first. One of my few joys in life.

Let’s say I was born in Iran. Neither my family nor I are Muslims. We don’t believe in this allah god nor do we appreciate what’s his name prophet… So, Ramadan happens and I am walking down the street eating french fries during the day. I get stoned to death. Tell me something… HOW BAD (exactly how) do Christmas haters have it here?

The funny thing is that as I Dasherd off my post, I forgot a Comet because I am a little Blitzen. Then it Donnered on me that it isn’t important because while I’m not a Cupid guy, I’m Vixen to go Dancer or maybe I’ll just Prancer into the kitchen and eat something Rudolph the shelf full of leftovers.

EXACTLY!

I am positive that not one of them would want to give up the bonuses, time off and festivities that come out of it. Like I said on another thread no one should feel excluded as it is not a mandate to celebrate the holiday as a religious one. It is ridiculous.

It’s the day Christianity has chosen to celebrate the birth of Christ. 80% of Christians do not believe Jesus was actually born on that day. Christians sought to replace pagan festivals with holidays that glorified their religion although much of the pagan rituals remained.

What matters is that for one day out of the year we celebrate and acknowledge the birth of Christ. Peace on earth = peace between men and God. Good will toward men = God’s peace between himself and men who accept his Son.

Some stuff but not rituals per se, thankfully. I am sure that a lot of women and children appreciate that they don’t have to be part of a lot of the stuff happening before Christianity came along. As for Christ’s Birth is concerned yes He was not born on this day. There is no problem with this. He is a Royal. Royalty (especially Western European Royalty) celebrated their real birthdays in private and created a day later on or earlier in order to celebrate their birthdays with the rest of the people. I got no problem with this. Jesus is awesome and whatever day designated to celebrate His Birth is fabulous.

There is a man who came up with the theory that today as the day that the wise men actually visited Christ due to the position of a Royal indicating star on that day: http://www.bethlehemstar.net

It is very possible His Birthday was earlier in the year and many do believe it was sometime in June however the day is not possible to pinpoint and that takes me back to what I said above about Royalty. Perhaps it is better to allow that to remain private. This man with the website above narrowed the day that He died to April 3rd 33. Interesting.

BTW, here is some “different” Christmas music…

…Trans-Siberian Orchestra w/ “Christmas Eve(Sarajevo 12/24)”

Powerful stuff & it’s easy to see why TSO has become an extremely popular live Christmas tour.

As some of you know, Twisted Sister has done Christmas concerts for a few years now, & put out a Christman album called ” A Twisted Christmas”, which ain’t bad. This is the official video for “Oh come all ye Faithful”…

But there is Christmas music that is profane, & while this is extremely funny, it has some very profane verbage. This is done by Aussie comic Kevin “Bloody” Wilson, it’s called “Hey Santa Clause”, CLICK AT YOUR OWN RISK…

Great words from Thomas Sowell: The annual outbursts of intolerance toward any display of traditional Christmas scenes, or even daring to call a Christmas tree by its name, show that today’s liberals are by no means liberal. Behind the mist of their lofty words, the totalitarian mindset shows through.

Liberals were progressives who started calling themselves liberals because progressive became a dirty label back in the day. They are going back to progressive because liberal has become dirty. Full circle, baby, full circle.
