(Img tag doesn't work, apparently.) You know what? I'm one of the most godless, liberal, anti-tradition motherfuckers out there, and even I'm sick to death of people pussyfooting around such delicate issues as how to greet each other during the month of December, or what to call an indoor tree with lights on it. When did Christmas suddenly become such a problem for non-Christians? It's never bothered me. I love Christmas. Hardly anyone I know even thinks of it as a Christian holiday anyhow, and if you look at history, it wasn't even one to begin with. I can't even begin to comprehend the mindset of someone who becomes righteously offended at being wished a "Merry Christmas". Do these people have no lives? Aren't there some bigger issues in the world, just possibly? Suppose you don't do anything for Halloween. No candy, no pumpkins, no costumes, nothing. On October 31, you turn off your porch light and sit around watching TV. Suppose you're this kind of person, yes? Now, do you get deeply offended when someone, during the month of October, wishes you a "Happy Halloween"? Do you demand that businesses greet you with a hearty "Pleasant Fall Festivities!" and that Jack-o-lanterns be called Autumn Gourds? Of course not, because that's completely stupid. So why do we turn around and do this to Christmas? Anyway, if you couldn't tell, this whole "controversy" just rubs me the wrong way. Merry Christmas, everyone.
