    I'm not religious. I went to Christian school for ten years.

    If I believe anything, it's be solstice oriented. I'd rather practice pagan sun worship than anything having to do with babies in barns. I'm not going to tell you that Yule is a pagan holiday, because you all know it. Each of you probably have a "Christmas Tree" in your house, and you know damn well the wise men didn't erect one in that barn where Jebus was born. I've come to terms with the facade.

    Every person that's told me "Merry Christmas" today didn't get one in return. I can't fake it this year. I stare at them blankly. These are people that tell me "hi" normally, but today they're wishing that I be merry........? It's just ridiculous. When I respond in what they perceive as a "bad mood" I get the "Sounds like somebody has a case of the mondays" or "Alright, Ebenezer." My mediocre response was retorted with negativity.

    Today is not sacred. That is, it's no more than any other day. It's what you make it, just like every other.

    Nothing bad happened to be today. I didn't get up on the wrong side of the bed. I got all the gifts I asked for. I gave all the gifts everyone asked for. There's no particular reason for the way I'm feeling, other than it's old and it's tired; all this shit.

    It sounds so hollow: "Merry Christmas." The greetings, yells down the hall, the phone calls, the text messages, the comments on myspace, and no doubt the responses I'll get in this thread will be jackasses saying "Merry Christmas" followed by :mrgreen: smiley faces. It's just all so.........fake. It's an excuse to be happy. I don't need an excuse.

    Fuck your dumb holiday.

    Although I am not quite so angry about it, I am having
    just another day' I don't have a Christmas tree- I din't give, or receive, any presents. Christmas has become a holiday for thr merchants, they look forward to it more than I do. I wished a 'Merry Christmas' to people I care about, for the hope that they have a merrier day than I, if that is their wish.
    If I were to celebrate the holiday, it would be with people I care about and that is what I would be celebrating. As for gifts, I find receiving them more guilt inducing than pleasurable, as it seems it is such a major part of the event, and I don't get it. I prefer to show people year round how I feel about them- give them gifts 'just because'- I dont need a holiday to show someone I love them.
    But I'm not angry. I am, however, a bit lonely.

    I have never liked the expression Humbug.

    I always preferred Bum Hug. It just sounds funnier.:tongue:

    Funniest observation I've heard this season:

    The Wise Men brought the child gold, frankincense, and an inflatable lawn ornament.

    What is with the bitterness? Go find yourself a big cock to pacify yourself. Life's too short to be angry.

    That's so weird. After writing this post, I had a dream that I was in a funhouse. The circus ringleader who was a fat old man with clown makeup had tied me to a the ceiling in the room with the floor that spins in circles. He bent me over and was fucking me up the ass, as per requested, while the leather strap around my neck got tighter and tighter from the spinning. Then I turned into a cartoon as I went through the funhouse and at the end of the dream I was a cartoon hooker for real life men who travelled to the cartoon world and looked just like that whorish chick off Cool World.

    Great dream, no? lol I couldn't make that shit up, promise.

    have to agree with heather, christmas was not celebrated ( three hundred years later) until pope constantine arbitrarily decided JC was born on 25 dec. and it has snowballed ever since, (no pun intended) its just a big buisness opportunity now. as is all religion. pope constantine also excluded the gospels of stephen , peter, thomas and MARY from the new testament. these are called the hidden gospels and are still in the vatigan library. anyway this is all moot all im sayin is heather is correct chistmas is an invention. monotheism was invented by ahkenaten, to the great chegrin of the establishment. after his death they attempted to remove all trace of him from history.

    There's a lot of shit going on in that dream. What's your self analysis?

    Why a fat man?
    Why a fun house?
    Why did you want it in the ass?
    Why the tightening of the noose?
    Why does being in the sex business come up every so often in your post...lol?

    And perhaps most importantly, doesn't the Cool World link work?

    You're right. It is a bit dumb.

    But, I look at it this way... Maybe if we give people the excuse to be nice to others on one day of the year it could catch on to the other 364 days as well.

    Almost DC_Deep's situation but not quite. You're still participating in the giving AND recieving of gifts on the 25th. Unless you choose to do the gift exchange on the solstice and wrap them in solstice paper (or not at all) as well as informing them of your feelings regarding this greeting, why be surprised or bothered by people greeting you this way?

    If you don't need an excuse to be happy why use today as an excuse to be unhappy? Wish them a belated solstice and peel your wrapping paper.

    I wont even go down the nasty road Heather went down. I will simply say she needs help. I hope she gets it. I wish her well and will keep her in my prayers and thoughts.

    Because my opinion doesn't reflect your own, I "need help?" I can drag up a million links and proofs that Yule and the entire Christmas celebration is a farce based on Pagan beliefs. You're telling me I need help for being honest and truthful about the facts?!

    Are you insane?! That is absolutely ridiculous, beyond laughter. Your kind scares me. I guess you'd have us all wearing uniforms too.

    I suppose you're using the two threads I've made as proof that I'm a hypocrite or something equal to that. I think if you look into pagan yule traditions, you'll see that gift giving is quite prevalent. I didn't say I didn't like gifts. I also didn't say anything about commercialism or how I'm against it. I love free shit. I'm a woman. I said I'm not religious.

    :rolleyes::rolleyes:
