"-People that call Bono, Bon-oh"

So, Spinninghead77, how do YOU pronounce it? Bone-oh? If you ask me, THAT's a horrid way of pronouncing it.

(Yeah, I pronounce Bono in the Bon-oh way).

I dislike tradition, because, somehow, we decide that the ideas and opinions of people who existed generations before us are automatically more important than ours. And then, when we build huge social structures around these traditions, I dislike it.

To be fair, not all traditions are bad, but I think we should feel free to modify and/or eliminate traditions, along with creating new ones, without feeling guilt.

And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

Well, I'm sure Melon could do without the frantic spending spree that was thrown on top of Christmas.

Ah, yes...Christmas. An interesting story on that.

In the 19th century, Americans used to give gifts for New Years. Technically, if you want to get totally traditional, gifts should have been given on Dec. 6th, the feast day of St. Nicholas. In the 1890s, business successfully got people to change the tradition to Dec. 25th, because sales weren't going too well and they hypothesized that lumping gift giving with a religious holiday would guilt people into buying more. Hence, the origin of the commericalism of Christmas.

The modern image of Santa Claus originated from the Coca-Cola Corporation, whose depiction of Santa in a 1940s ad campaign has since stuck.

Commercialism...commercialism...

Ouch! That one hurts. I used to dislike her too, but then I had a change of heart and now she's my other favorite artist. She comes across badly on TV and in interviews but she's wonderful and generous with her fans, and her fans are as obsessive as U2 fans as a result. And her live shows are legendary. But she's definitely not everyone's cup of tea.

No, Melon, I'm afraid that you have fallen for an urban legend which is popular in the US but fairly unknown in Europe. Santa Claus looked like that decades before the Coca Cola Company launched their first Santa campaign.
