    It's a commercial holiday, an excuse to get consumers to fork up wads of cash for useless commodities which will end up in the back pocket of some sweatshop owner in China or multi-national shareholder in California.

    Im more into the familial aspect of it tbh myself! I like the feeling it creates but have noticed a few people that usually spent it by themselves are getting together this year! The commercialsation of it is awful. My family and myself usually just do Kris Kindle with a small value on the price but the thought more so that counts.

    Christmas is just a seasonal ''Hit and Run''
    I never ever believed in Santa or any of that when i was growing up.

    Not until last Christmas when my Granny got knocked over by a Deer. It was attached, with others to a sledge and driven by some big fat guy with a white beard, wearing a red and white coat. Police were called and liability went either way as Granny was slightly intoxicated.

    Yet the big fat guy drive on and laughed, ho, ho, ho [cheeky fecker]

    Christmas Season starts on the first Sunday of Advent. I don't want to know about it before then. Sorry.

    he Teacher asked young Patrick Murphy: "What do you do at Christmas time?"


    Patrick addressed the class: "Well Ms. Jones, me and my twelve brothers and sisters go to midnight mass and we sing hymns; then we come home very late and we put mince pies by the back door and hang up our stockings. Then all excited, we go to bed and wait for Father Christmas to come with all our toys.


    "Very nice Patrick," she said. "Now Jimmy Brown, what do you do at Christmas?"
    "Well, Ms. Jones, me and my sister also go to church with Mom and Dad and we sing carols and we get home ever so late. We put cookies and milk by the chimney and we hang up our stockings. We hardly sleep, waiting for Santa Claus to bring our presents."


    Realizing there was a little Jewish boy in the class and not wanting to leave him out of the discussion, she asked, "Now, Isaac Cohen, what do you do at Christmas?"
    Isaac said, "Well, it's the same thing every year...Dad comes home from the office. We all pile into the Rolls Royce; then we drive to Dad's toy factory. When we get inside, we look at all the empty shelves...And begin to sing: “What A Friend We Have in Jesus”.


    "Then we all go to the Bahamas."

    Ah yes. This is the celebration of a child born out of wedlock, if I'm not mistaken.
    All I'll say is this:
    Being the unmarried mother of the son of a deity, conceived "immaculately" is a lifestyle choice.
    She should have all her benefits cut as soon as he's old enough to master basic miracles.
