    Link: The Bizarre Origins of Christmas - Christmas wasn`t handed down as a fully-formed holiday. It`s a rich tapestry woven from countless pointless customs.

    It`s no shock that Christmas is a hoax and just as useless as every other commercial holiday that exists.

    does it really matter, nobody cares about what christmas means anymore, it`s just a bit of harmless fun. It makes people happy, why not

    It only really became an excuse for companies to advertise their toys and sell them like crazy when Coca Cola made it popular worldwide.
    Amazing what one company can do...

    I`m so astonished by the lack of violence on the North Men`s part when that religious bigot chopped down their "God of Thunder" tree. They should have opened a can of "Viking woop ass." (which is in fact just a can of human blood)

    It`s Christmas for Christ Sakes! (lol)

    On another note, I do believe in the dude above (whatta miracle eh?) and I think it is about the traditional birth of Jesus. Why does everyone have to go oevrboard? Its supposed to be a time of caring and being with family. If I had my way I wouldn`t give anyone anything. It would be about being with the ones I care for and helping those who need it. Yes its cheesy but I don`t give a sh*t. Those other stories are a bunch of BS, but thats just my opinion.

    CheesyQueso: I know you don`t care and all but you don`t deserve a f*cking thing. You are very selfish.

    Also, aren`t you `celebrating` if you are sitting there with everyone else, smiling, laughing, and holding your hands out for yet `another` gift? Thats seems to be `celebrating` to me. If you DONT, then go to your room and watch TV or something that way you will be completely out of the `celebration` loop!

    So, back then Christmas wasn`t "get a new Xbox day." It was, "you don`t have to become a filthy whore day."

    I was surprised to learn that a women wrote that article. I like her sense o` humor. Yeah, christmas has turned into something that it never really intended to be. Oh well.

    And how about the fact that I tried to bring these truths to my mother in laws attention abuot 4 weeks ago
    (like he wasnt born in our winter, he was born int he anceint tax days- hence their being no room at the inn, and the reason they had to travel== and then dec 25th was picked so thatearly christians wouldnt be killed for their beliefs and they could disguise it as celebrating somthing "legal")

    Anyway, I brought this to her attention and she told me I wasnt allowed to come to christmas dinner.
    ...isnt that great

    "So, back then Christmas wasn`t "get a new Xbox day." It was, "you don`t have to become a filthy whore day." While it could be argued that this basically makes Nicholas the anti-pimp, we prefer to think of him as the Bible`s answer to Travis Bickle."

    Ah, that was f*cking brilliant!

    Funny. This is what I tell kids & teachers alike when I go to school and they ask why I don`t celebrate Christmas.

    So how did people ever make the connection between the poo stick plant and romance? It goes back to the pagan belief that the white, sticky goo from the berries was the semen of the gods.
