Xmas is preferred.

The last thing we need is someone coming in here crying about religion.

I didn't know xmas is to be politically correct, I thought that was the purpose of "happy holidays." I figured xmas was just for lazy people lol.

merry christmas

if someone is so sensitive about religion to be hurt when someone says christmas over whatever they wanted to hear instead, they've missed the point by miles and should reconsider whatever they believe.

That's one of the greatest paragraphs I've ever read... arrogant, condescending and wrong (on so many levels), but also at the same time it's honest, straightforward and right.

Oh, if only we had some hardcore religious types on =50. This could become a legendary thread...

(Lemmi, don't post. You'll just make yourself look stupid.)

There's nothing wrong with a person who is not a Christian to shorten Christmas to Xmas. In fact I would prefer this option, as forcing them to celebrate something they do not believe in is clearly wrong.

All the religious zealots who are trying to "keep Christ in Christmas" have missed the point about Christmas.

Fact of the matter is, the Church shouldn't be fighting against those who are trying to take Christ out of Christmas. Let them have their way, Christmas was not a directive given to the Jews or Gentiles, it's a tradition implemented by the Roman Catholic Church. How many times have traditions changed over the course of time? Tons! Is it blasphemous to not celebrate Christmas if you're a Christian? No it is not, it's just a tradition! Forcing someone to recognize a belief they do not believe in, is again clearly wrong.

And that is all I will say on this matter. :P

Merry Christmas, Winter Solstice, Holidays to all!

Quite honestly it's ridiculous how far this has even gone.

Maybe I should rephrase what I said to be extremely and anally specific! lol.

RANDOM SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS 101

If you are HONESTLY **** HURT (people who care only to **** about it for the sake of **** and being snotty are automatically going to burn[or freeze?] in hell/hades/Gbay/etc anyway; so you don't count) over when someone (WHO DOES NOT MATTER TO YOUR BELIEFS [KEY WORD: YOUR, NOT HIS OR HER]), says Merry Christmas instead of staying Happy Festivus/Happy Kwanzaa/Happy Hannukah/Merry Xmas/Seasons Greetings/Happy Holidays then I encourage you to rethink your beliefs or leave your multicultural country because this is obviously important to you... Otherwise just tell the person, who most likely only said this just to be nice to you, that you don't mean to be rude but you celebrate X instead of Y.

But let's not forget the real reason christmas/winter holidays/festivus exists. Magic mushrooms!

I was just reading on yahoo on how xmas isn't about eliminating religion from the holiday name. >_>

Anyway, since I've had to say it all week, I'll just say **** YOU ALL >:D lol, j/k, but I won't say Merry you know what. About 300 times in a week is my limit ^.~

Happy Holidays works just as well :P

EDIT: Btw, whenever someone says Merry Xmas, I resist the urge to scream "GET INSIDE AND LOCK THE DOOR, SANTA CLAUSE IS COMING TO TOWN!" :P Futurama <3

Happy Holidays is what an Agnostic would say.

When you learn about major religions of the world, you only understand no one is entirely right.

Christmas sucks balls, the only good thing about it was the smile my daughter got on her face when she opened all her presents. And the 2 presents I got from wife. 1. Dragon Age: Origins on PS3 which I was expecting. The second was a Wii which I wasn't expecting. Now my computer desk is even more cluttered, monitor, TV, ps2, ps3 and a Wii. I think she is trying to fatten me up for something by making me play games all day. Maybe I will foil her evil plan and get Wii-fit. I know lemmi is gunna say smash bros.

Dragon Age is awesome, but very long winded. There's a **** of a lot of chatting... yeah you can skip bits of it but considering 60-70% of the game seems to be interacting with NPC's then what's the point.

Get Mario and Sonic Summer/Winter Games for your Wii. They're so much fun.

And this thread has hit 11 posts without a stupid reply. I think this is a new record.

I'd have to agree with liki on that.

Not only did you get the phrase wrong ("I couldn't care less...."), but not caring about religion is pretty much admitting to ignorance. Nothing else has changed the course of history more than the beliefs of man. Seriously.

If you say X-mas instead of Christmas than you're just being a douche and shouldn't celebrate it. Go make a new **** holiday if you want to take part in something, but also want to change the name and reason for it.

Touche. Back in 2005, I was a whiny idiot some of the time. Hell, sometimes I still am. Just not so much.

And surely... the fact that you have an opinion but don't care what others have to say is what would make you ignorant in the first place?

Go and post in Long Thread(TM) now.

Yea, but you're also not going out of your way to take his name OUT of a holiday named after him and created for his birthday. It's not so much about sitting around singing Jesus' praise during the holiday, but people going out of their way to change the name to their liking is pathetic. It's like on Martin Luther King Jr day, liking the fact that you don't have work, but deciding his name isn't worthy for the day and calling it WXYZ Day.

Actually, holiday is a bastarized version of the words Holy and Day. It has nothing to do with Jesus. If holiday = jesus then many holidays are nothing more then celebratory days based on whatever a person is celebrating. You know what? They have a name for that.... holiday...


Adding to it, Lemmi, Christmas predates Jesus, it was pagan holidays that the catholic church took as there own and named after jesus. Though he more likely was born in the springtime due to baby animals being around and positioning of the stars according to the story. Easter would be a better birthday for him then christmas to be honest. **** we still celebrate pagan rituals, gingerbread cookies? during the winter solstice a few smaller religions actually baked bread in the shape of people. Yule log burning is also another tradition. The christmas tree being decorated? nope not christian nor a part of judism which christianity sprang from.

Personally I don't care whether you celebrate christmas for religious reasons, or just to get pretty presents like I do, just do us all a favor and don't park in my fuc*ing spot at the mall, k? k.

This.

Decorating the Christmas tree is more than likely a Pagan (or other form of nature based religion) decorating a tree to say thanks to whatever God they're currently worshipping at the time (my personal favourite is Dave, God of Boobs)

Pretty much every Christian holiday has either been stolen from another religion, or has been twisted to the point that most people don't even know why it exists.

"This is my body, this is my blood"? Give me a **** break, it's more like "ok guys, I'm probably going to be dead in a few days - let's have some food and get **** as a fart!"

I guess I'll clarify my position on this, not that it really matters... I don't celebrate Christmas for any religious purpose. I think it is a neat holiday and I enjoy the ho-ho-ho spirit of it. Baking, dining w/ family & friends, exchanging gifts, the corny music, the fat guy in the chimney, etc. I know from my Christian upbringing that I am supposed to celebrate it for the birth of Christ and all that, but I don't believe in that stuff anymore, so I enjoy the holidays for more practical reasons. I think when it comes to the Christmas spirit, there is room for more than just the religious aspect.

Although I don't believe in Jesus, I really don't understand how anyone can find it offensive if someone wishes them Happy Christmas. How is that offensive? Somehow we've come to where you either wish someone the holiday they celebrate, or you don't wish them anything at all (which is pretty much what "happy holidays" is, the verbal equivalent of a non-committal wave of a hand) for fear of getting them all offended. This whole "happy holidays" business has got to be an American invention.

I guess sooner or later we can't tell someone to have a nice day, either, since we can't be sure they even want to have a nice day; maybe they want to have a **** one, and we are being selfish and offensive by trying to wish them otherwise.
