RE: Who's ready for the war on Christmas BS?
Putting the "Christ" back in xmas is also pretty funny, since earlier xtians used to spell it that way, themselves. Most people know squat about the history of their own religion, most of the time. I'd venture to say that if most RCC people read even some of what their own scholars write, they'd vote with their feet.

I don't make a fuss. I say back whatever holiday-related phrase is said to me. If I speak first I say happy holidays. I live in a town with Christians, Jews, Hindus, and Muslims, so I don't assume anything about the other person's religion or traditions.

I have been told by online Christians that saying "happy holidays" instead of "merry christmas" is persecution. I have also been told by online Christians that as an atheist, I should not put up a tree or give presents or tell anyone Merry Christmas, because if I do any of that, I am not showing Christianity enough respect. How I should always say Merry Christmas yet never say Merry Christmas is quite the conundrum.

There are Christians in some areas of the country (bible belt) who make a scene when a store employee says "happy holidays" to them, even when the employee has been told to do this by the company.

I have always used happy holidays or merry Christmas, but I want to try new ones this year.
Isn't Christmas Newton a birthday? And

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

RE: Who's ready for the war on Christmas BS?
War on Christmas, my ass. I was hearing carolling muzak at the grocery store back in September. Before I'm dead, there will probably be only one week a year that it isn't Christmas. One week where there isn't a limited-time 53-week sale on geegaws and gro'brogfrans. One week a year without carols. One week a year without Christians reminding me that God was born in a barn to a virgin floozy and her cuckold husband, visited by Indo-Chinese wizards and given money, air freshener, and embalming spices, while Krampus killed all the kids.

That will the most joyous week of all.

Don't let those gnomes and their illusions get you down. They're just gnomes and illusions.

Meh...I don't care anymore.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Seems to me that the gross commercialism that starts shortly after Labor Day would be offensive. They want to put the Christ back in Christmas, perhaps they should take the dollars signs out of the whole thing.

If the religious people are going to start bringing it up earlier every year, might as well sell on queue (or so they're possibly thinking). Tongue
