      Celebrating Christmas

      Do I have to be Christian to get on Santa's nice list? I recently converted and I'm really scared that I might get coal in my stocking cause I actually hired a guy to deliver coal to me recently and really don't need more. Will Mr. Clause still love me if I don't believe in G-dawg?

      Also I tip my regular coal guy a couple of bucks, should I tip Santa if I do end up on his naughty list?

      There's not a police that asks "Are you a Christian?" if they see any "suspicious" acts of you celebrating Christmas.

      I think you should just go ahead and take advantage of all the good points of Christmas, whether your a Christian or not:

      -Pretentious display of warm, cuddly, and fuzzy feelings inside that lasts until it's the end of December.

      -Eggnog. WHO passes that up? (unless you can't drink it of course)

      -Food: The only time when people who are so strict on having a tight budget throughout the year starting going "YOLO!!!!"! contradict their habits, and just buy a lot of food. Just to feel that they're having a good time.

      -Mistletoe: Seems to be a sedation method that's more efficient than chloroform when you put it on top of someone you want to kiss. It's a catalyst to starting New Years off with a bang...and in 8-9 months...goo goo ga ga.

      -Middleman coal worker: Only give him a few bucks if he can somehow convert coal into diamonds; and make sure he has the competence of a shovel before he realizes he's being scammed $3 bucks for doing so.

      -Santa Claus' naughty list: Seriously? I can't believe you're making it harder for Santa to distribute his gifts like that. He has 99 problems, and someone who reincarnates infinitely definitely ain't going be one. Do you know how many mortals he has to start monetizing profits from? You're going to be behind a looooooooooooooooong line my friend.







      (don't take it seriously, I love you).

      Christmas has nothing to do with Christianity, despite having Christ in the name. It is a cultural holiday and only just barely retains its religious meaning by the smallest of threads. Everyone knows Jesus wasn't born in December. Christmas is a pagan holiday to celebrate the winter solstice, and Christians just changed Jesus's birth date to to the same date so they can join in on the partying. Really, celebrating Christmas is probably blasphemous. If your a christian and you celebrate it you are probably going to hell.

      Hey if I become Pagan can I get on the nice list and get my presents early?

      Sure, there's an ideology you can put into practice: Atheism 2.0

      Take all the good points of several religions, and just enjoy your life with science or some other methodology as a supplement.

      Are you trying to turn this into an actual thread about religion?
      Because I won't allow that.

      Lol, an encroachment of religion within a section of religion? Of course not! How could you assume that?!? I can see why Santa wants to add you to your naughty list.

      Wait....this isn't a derivative of that Naughty Fred post you made in SB is it? If so, I can't allow that.

      Lol, you made that many posts in SB that you forgot? Never mind then.

      Hope there's some modicum of substance to be added to this thread though. Farewell.

      Hopefully you can get on his nice list regardless. And please celebrate Christmas... How else will we keep our economy afloat if not based on unsustainable endless growth and consumerism?!

      BUY SHIT. SPEND MONEY. ????????? PROFIT!!!!!

      Nah, you don't have to be Christian! Listen, this is America! Our corporate consumerist industry doesn't discrimitate, they accept money of all faiths! As long as you've got money, you're a person in their eyes.

      Sadly it probably isn't; most people are too ignorant to understand the irony. That guy's probably just intolerant.

      Er, on a semi-serious note, when did Christmas become so commercial anyway? I mean, I wouldn't go around celebrating Chanukah since I'm not Jewish, when did people who aren't Christian/Pagan/whatever start celebrating Christmas? (Note that I have no problem with it, I'm genuinely curious).

      You live in a Christian nation. There's a lot of pressure to celebrate it and a lot of times it's not even pressure, it's just what you grew up around and it's all you know.
