I'm a Jew and I celebrate Christmas, because well, Christmas is much more fun than Hanukkah
If you choose to celebrate it purely as the "birth of Jesus" that is your prerogative, but most of the traditions and celebration is winter solstice
And Frankly Christmas should be declared a National Holiday
It's a GREAT Holiday a fantastic celebration and a tradition for everyone including the break for kids, Santa Claus
Seriously...quite Frankly i'll kick someones butt on purpose every year if they make Christmas go away
So screw Kwanzaa and Hanukkah takes a back seat and frankly I don't give a damn what weird thing comes along in place this year or next...
Christmas just gets put down lower every year and it's retarded, stores that wont say he word and all that junk...
I Look forward every year to my mid winters feast... and break and the Tree and the music and everyone being happy...
Okay... Christmas rules...
Hanukkah doesn't make anyone HAPPY the way Christmas does... Neither does Kwanzaa
We have to respect WHAT ELSE IN THIS SEASON?
Ron Karenga created Kwanzaa in 1966 as the first specifically African-American holiday.
It's total crap... it was invented in 1966 to screw over a great happy holiday that basically ROCKS and the traditions (if you can call a figment of a pissed off brothers imagination a tradition) they stink by comparison... BORING...wheres the booze and the girls is cute little outfits...
Why did this imbecile invent this and why do we support it... Little Black Children WANT SANTA too
How do I know this?
Because as a Jew, One cheap crap gift every day for a week bites by comparison to a Fat Jolly drunk that unloads GIANT GIFTS
I wanted to tell my parents to shove that god damned draddle right up their (CENSORED)
What kind of CREEPS want Christmas to go away?
I say it clearly my people representing less than 1% of this nation need to shut up on this one...
Kwanzaa is Completely made up
I don't Care about offended Islamics their Holidays SUCK MOST OF ALL and the rest of us don't need to suffer for their lame boring can't have any fun beliefs...
I've never seen an Asian complain about Christmas EVER
It's an AMERICAN Holiday... it should be protected
You know this person must have a point if even a Jewish guy is getting this worked up about what they are doing to Christmas...
Damn no good Grinch's... CHRISTMAS IS MAGIC YOU PIGS
No god damned Egg Nog and Rum for blasted Hanukkah... Never seen a Muslim walk for days to fricken Mistletoe... Kwanzaa... Fruit, thanks allot jerk offs...
Let's serve FRUIT instead of a Giant Turkey.... Give kids cheap little spinning tops... or just sit in silence or go on a pilgrimage till my feet bleed...
I have NO RESPECT for ANY of the other Christmas competitors... those Holidays SUCK

I have a perfect solution to everyone's point of view on this whole "Seperation of Church and State" issue.
We all know the government's point of view about Religion. They think their is no place for religion in government, hence the removal of it from said Department of Education schools.
Here is novel idea. How about removing government from schools?
By the very act of the Fed taking control of our schools they have gone against the very Amendment they "Supposedly" are trying to protect.
Where, in the Constitution, does it mandate Federally controlled schools?
See, the Fed always sidesteps the very issue of the situation.
The thorough devaluement of ethics in our country, can be directly attributable to the Fed run schools. Where narcissism runs rampant.
How bout them apples?

Tea parties have been hijacked by right wing Christian's aka the Republican party. While I'm glad they are sorta awake...forcing viewpoints on others wasn't the original intention of the tea parties. Following the constitution was the only intention.
Again this type of excuse. How can you call it an opportunity if its mandatory or required by schools to play it?? Why should a public school funded by the tax payer be forced to favour a certain religion? Dont you have religious schools for that?? Whats wrong with religious schools? Why do the public schools funded by the tax payers have to forced to promote one religion?

Without embarrassing you by commenting on the rediculous ignorance you are spouting in your reply to me, I will clarify how disgustingly small minded you are being in the original post I quoted.
In your post you promote physical violence, use 'retarded' as a derogatory term, blast Kwanzaa for being made up but disregard the fact that EVERY religion is made up, and most importantly, call people PIGS, CREEPS, JERK OFFS and IMBECILES, not to mention your ethno-centricly biased opinions aimed at Muslums, Asians, (your apparant selfhatred of) Jews, and pretty much anyone that isn't AMERICAN considering Christmas is (as you say) an American Holiday.
Here is just something to think about.
You know how you used the word 'retarded'? Well, guess what? Many people that are 'retarded' know they have a mental disability. How do you think they feel when they see or hear someone use the word 'retarded' to mean something derogetory? Makes you feel REAL GOOD doesnt it?
It's really pathetic.
