MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


In college, a group of my friends used to have a party. At that party we all used to get drunk to the point of blindness as we were all going home for the holidays soon after.

Every year a fight would break out and chanting would start. Half the room would scream, "Jesus was a Jew!!!" The other half of the room would scream, "The Jews killed Jesus!!!"



It was a perfect equilibrium and at that moment in time, the world was right and true...

what if you don't believe in any religious bru-ha-ha whatsoever and you are simply looking forward to having a few days off?

hence, HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

What typical bullshit.


If you don't want to wish someone a Merry Christmas, don't.

But stop whining about "Theocracy" or "non-inclusive" if someone does say Merry Christmas.

well, Bush clearly didn't want to wish someone a Merry Christmas, so he didn't. yet, we hear the outrage from several voices on the religiously conservative right.

they should take your advice, i think, and stop whining about being discriminated against if someone chooses not to say "merry christmas" because they'd rather be inclusive and, where taxpayer-supported governmental insitutions are involved, to avoid theocratic tendencies where the assumption is that if one is a citizen of a particular country then one is, by definition, of a particular religion.

i wonder ... will GW Bush now join Bill O'Reilly's "christmas hate list"? i do hope to see Mr. O'Reilly with exercise his considerable reserves of outrage in our president's direction.

heathens! liberal, secular heathen! look!

[q]Laura Bush , ducking into the Georgetown Pottery Barn yesterday for barely five minutes, wearing a bright blue suit and wishing shoppers "Happy Holidays" in a very perky way. Didn't buy anything -- maybe just making her wish list?

If I know the person is Christian I tell them Merry Christmas, if I know they are Jewish, I tell them Happy Channukah...if I don't know I tell them Happy Holidays.

Now if I had a list of people I'm sending cards to, especially one that's 1.4 million long, I'm not going to buy everyone a separate card...so I will say Happy Holidays!

I don't see how that's bullshit, I don't see how that's not having a backbone, or any of this other shit I hear people whining about.

But if someone can explain why it is one of these things then I will glady listen.

Wishing someone a Happy Christmas is not some kind of evidence of a 'theocracy'.

Honestly, since I don't know what everyone's belief systems are, I usually do say "Happy Holidays." But now since that might offend people too, I'm flat out going to ignore the holidays altogether around other people and pretend it's just another day completely.

Happy?

Melon
