Then you're a moron. If you're buying ANYTHING this holiday season without paying CASH you're an idiot.
Don't go into debt for Christmas shopping for stuff that most people can do without. All the smart money is saying that in 2010-2011 you should do
everything you can to make sure you don't have any debt.
After all, it's not like most people who celebrate Christmas are actually Christians or celebrate it for what it originally stood for. I would
estimate that in well over 90% of American homes, even in those who claim to be Christian, the baby Jesus is hardly mentioned on Christmas Day.
I'm atheist, and I don't celebrate Christmas. To call it a "celebration of family" is hypocritical, especially if you're non Christian.
It amuses me the number of people who claim to be atheist, but then jump all over the Christmas holidays every year.
I'm not really saying Bah Humbug, I'm just saying that if you're a true atheist, then the most hypocritical thing you can do all year is celebrate
Christmas, the celebration of the Birth of the Son of God.
I'm also not African-American, but to me, Kwanza makes so much more sense as a celebration of family and friends.
