it's that time of year again. People are decorating their houses. Shoppers are in the malls searching for the perfect gift. Families  are making travel arrangements to go back home for a visit. Menus are being planned for the occasion. Stockings are being stuffed and children have eyes widened in great wonder in anticipation of a visit from Santa Claus.

not much exists of the Christmases I remember as a child. It's all become a commercial mess, where people when asked "What's the true meaning of Christmas?" They almost always respond it's about family and giving, and remembering our loved ones, and caring for the poor and needy, or any number of things that have absolutely nothing to do with the religious nature of the holiday. 
We used to attend midnight mass at the Catholic Church in my hometown. We used to say Merry Christmas to everyone we met. For reasons beyond the scope of this discussion around age 12 I stepped away from all of that. I spent the next 20 years of my life in complete rebellion to all the things involving Christianity and Christmas.

but at no time in my life did I ever hold the belief that's reflected in this picture:

So while you may be offended by me using the term


You're nowhere nearly as offended as I am by the sentiment espoused by this jackass.

ps, Not happy holidays. good kwanza, season's greetings or any other no religious themed salutations will be uttered by me. 

just a plain, simple, direct and to the politically incorrect point,

I love Christmas. I celebrate Christmas and say Merry Christmas- personally I don't care of someone finds it offensive. In some areas near where I live some schools have banned Christmas pageants, decorations and carols because apparently it's offensive to those who don't celebrate it.

It is seriously sad when we live in a multi-cultural society that it is considered offensive to have Christmas decorations. Why not just ban the whole thing and we can become a miserable bunch of politically correct bores with absolutely no culture whatsoever?

*Sigh* why do some
feel the right
to put their "shoulds"
on other citizens?

If I say "Happy Holidays" "Happy Kwanza or Chanukah" Or "Merry Christmas & Happy New Year"
it is not invitation to a squabble!

GREAT post my friend. Thank you for posting, visiting, and being a presence I value in my world.

I get the feeling that once this jackass is at the Pearly Gates, St Peter is going to give him a good kick in the pants!

Wow, that just saddens me. While I'm a christian, I've been far away from organized and practicing religion for many years, but that truly sickens me.

Merry CHRISTmas

Im in COMPLETE agreement with you.
Christmas is about Christ....plain and simple....(oh and my birthday)
I hate it that the non believers are so adamant in their non belief....I do pity them however, they will pay for their ignorance.

Christmas time is here! The word Christmas involves the word CHRIST. If no one believes me, do a spell check.

Merry Christmas to you, my favorite Kurt in the whole entire world (even more than Kurt Russell)! I hope your Christmas holidays are filled with good health.

Amen! Love this post. Merry Christmas! I have been doing okay for the most part just battling a sort of depression over the miscarriage. Hope you are well!
