Default Re: Holiday Bullcrap

It always seems that an overbearing group tends to impose certain beliefs on another. Personally I believe that whatever you want to do with your "Christmas" or "Holiday" tree should remain between you and whoever believes in it with you. No one is forcing any atheist to celebrate Christmas, Jesus, or anything religous ideals - and giving gifts relates to this in almost no way.

America is not Whoville from The Grinch. Over the years Christmas has become increasingly more materialistic. Nowadays, it seems that even Christian families give gifts without any regard to some sort of Christian background or history. The absence of presents on Christmas day could mean hell to a kid (and even a parent) rather than a chance to sing christmas carols or celebrate Jesus. Fact is, Christmas is no longer completely a Christian holiday, it's a money holiday for people to rack up on gifts from family and friends. For some, the birth of Jesus remains an allegorical concept while for others it fades into the snow.

"O Holiday Tree, O Holiday Tree" just doesn't sound the same...

Dali: "I know what the picture should be ... We take a duck and put some dynamite in its derriere. When the duck explodes, I jump and you take the picture."
Halsman: "Don't forget that we are in America. We will be put in prison if we start exploding ducks."
Dali: "You're right. Let's take some cats and splash them with water."
