The Sky is Falling....

...Yes its falling haven't you heard the latest - they wanna kill Christmas. Or so this is what a few folks have been saying and at least one person has told me that this is so. My husband even went so far as to say that it was true! That they're trying to get rid of the celebration in preparation for the AntiChrist!!! What! Ok now lets get this ALL in perspective. Getting rid of Christmas - as long as the merchants make money, and fist fulls of it; good luck getting rid of ANYTHING connected to that! Ain't happening. Cause lets face it, that's all Christmas has been reduced to anyway, shopping, spending, overdoing and frustration. Yes we're supposed to be remembering the birth of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, instead we're all focused on Target stores not saying "Merry Christmas" I've said it before and I'll say it again, Christians are embarrassing and trivial these last days. This was a group formed to follow the teachings of a revolutionary and visionary man called Jesus Christ but now reduced to a bunch of yahoos and fanatics running around picking at the smallest of things. Now they want to boycott Target! Is that what Christianity is all about, is that what it is now, harassing people about saying "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays" And for all the Christians information - the Christmas season ain't about Jesus' birth no more that the Easter Bunny is about his death.
Christmas was a clever incorporation by needy Christians at that time in an effort to make a ploy for the pagans that celebrated the tree festival in Germany. They cleverly tied it in to that celebration, roped those folks in and voila! Here we have it. The festival was all about Klaus/father Christmas/Chris Kringle or whatever you want to call him, the trees and lights. Somehow Christians managed to tag Jesus all up in this messy mix, so now we have the Nativity scene, the north star, Santa Claus, expensive gifts, elves, reindeer, trees & lights all thrown together. What a mess, who even knows what ends where and what is what anymore. So is it religious or what, now the kids can't sing obvious Christmas carols and everyone is hypersensitive and all up in arms, just over doing it with silliness and too much unnecessary political correctness. The Christians that make up the majority of the country think that they're under siege. I think that this is a common trait with Christians - they always want to believe that they're under attack, suppressed and on the verge of extinction. Please, don't worry, they're too many of you. They want to browbeat everyone into the season, whether they're Christian or not, again the superiority complex that Christians seem to posses. I'm never offended at other groups' holidays or celebrations, Diwali, Ramadan, Yom Kippur - whatever, and if they walked around at their holiday time and wished me a Happy Whatever - hey I wouldn't care less or be offended, at least they're wishing me something good and not trying to mug me or smack me over the head and to me that's all good. Every one really needs to calm down with the hypersensitivity, even those folks who say they're offended by the Christmas decorations - really, take a load off, at least they're interesting to look at. And to the Christians all up in arms, I mean really, its your holiday, embrace it and as long as you're not being hung or hoarded off into camps for partaking in it - don't worry about the rest of the world and what they think. Learn to stop trivializing things, its really not a good look, more like a major turn off that doesn't endear you to anyone, just makes you out to be a group of people who're more like the annoying small pebble in your shoe.
