A ranting rant...Merry Christmas.
Not "Merry X'mas"
Not "Season's Greetings"
Not "Happy Holidays"
But, Merry Jesus-Christmas.
It really peeves me when I hear this bunch of people complaining and whining about how no one should say "Christmas" anymore because it offenses a bunch atheists or other religous people.
I don't put down Muslims when they "Selamat Hari Raya!" Do I?
Christmas is not about Santa Claus falling down a chimney. It's not about generosity. It's not about family and spending time together. It's not about friends and reunions.
Heck is not just about giving.
Whether you like it or not, Christmas is all about Jesus Christ and it pisses me off, when they take the Christ out of Christmas and and and!
When people are celebrating it the way it should be, people complain how it's not respecting them and it offends their philosophies and stuff.
This is a Christian Holiday.
No matter how much publicity it's going to get. No matter how many people decide it's the in thing to celebrate. No matter how much it becomes altered into this give-gifts-and-recieve-them-little-hearts-becoming-big-hearts-like-that-Grinch-guy-which-might-I-say-is-a-totally-funny-movie-but-still.
Christmas is a Christian Holiday.
Whether you like it or not, it's there to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Man-God who came to earth and died for all of us.
Whether you believe it or not, is not the point here.
Christmas is for Christians.
Don't like is it?
Then don't fecking participate.
Yeesh, isn't that simple enough?
*mumbles about people who tried to change the name "Christmas Lights" to "Winter Lights" and sounding suspicously like the words "Winter Lights! What about people who don't leave in snowing countries?! What are they gonna call them then? So dumb!"
Oh, and Merry Christmas by the way.
