I’m not a Christmas person.
I’m much more comfortable at Halloween.
Because people don’t tend to have as many high expectations about what they’re going to get.
Not only that, I can be myself without having to worry about any repercussions.
I’m not saying Christmas is bad. What I’m saying is that it’s exhausting, and there’s way too much commercialism. Halloween isn’t disguised as a Religious Holiday that we get off of work and that schools are closed for. Christmas is.
All these people that are throwing fits about Christmas being attacked, THINK about THIS.
Christians, get Christmas and Easter off of work (generally speaking). A lot of stores and other establishments are closed on Christmas and Easter.
What other religion really has their holidays INGRAINED into our society so deeply that they get their holidays off? None that I can see. Sure some of the schools and colleges give a couple holidays off depending on how much of their population actually celebrates them. But it’s only Christmas that is found on teh United States Federal Holiday list.
Which brings up this question, given the fact that there is supposed to be a separation of church and state, what does that say?
mhm. Now I’m not saying that you can’t say “Merry Christmas!” But I’m getting tired of seeing all these arguments on the internet that there’s a war on Christmas, there’s not. People are just finally coming to the realization that not everyone celebrates the same holiday this time of year. They are trying to be considerate, as well as not hurt someones feelings.
Honestly, between the war arguments and the commercialism, my Christmas cheer was murdered before the season even got halfway through this year.
So call me a heathen if you want to. But enjoy whatever holiday you want to celebrate. I’m just not feeling any of them right now.
