Happy Holidays Merry Christmas!

Friday, 21 December 2007

Being rather irreligious makes this time of year difficult. Not because I’m against Christmas. I’m not. Not in the slightest. I love it. But then I don’t want the joy I take from it or my general participation in the rituals to implicitly lend my support to Christianity. At the same time I cannot bring myself to stoop to anything like, “Happy Holidays,” to keep it at arm’s length. That’s just weak.

So, how to strike a balance between endorsing the holiday but not the religious aspects. I think I finally found a delicately nuanced middle ground.

Merry Christmas & Fuck Jesus!

That should prevent some misunderstandings.

This is perhaps, in 15 years, one of the funniest things you've done (not counting the times I've seen you naked).

Have a bountiful Kwanzaa bitches!

Today's Bizarro comic made me chuckle: two people passing each other on a street: "Merry nothing!" says one, "Same to you!" the other. It was captioned "Atheist Christmas".

This brings joy to my heart Ashley. I too love the solstice festivities. And now you've provided the nuance with which to baste any geese (or ducks) that need it.

This is exactly why I love Christmas so much. Look at all the warmth my simple post returned to me. :)
