Nice...
I think after reading this, I didn't before, but now...oh yes, now the evil of the Masons is clear...lol.
But what about those that were Ballers? (The Ball jars) hehe.

We choose the most beautiful virgin to sacrifice to the God Xenu. Then we sit around and eat candy canes all day.
You ever notice the red and white stripes of a candy cane. It signifies the blood dripping down the white flesh of a virgin blonde. The red cone shape hat that Santa wears is emblimaticle of the cone shaped device we use to penetrate the virgin and watch the blood spill.

Pretty horrific right, I can keep going but i'm late for my mornign sacrifice.

They obviously partake in the most sinister of activities when it comes to Christmas.

Only this morning, my uncle, a mason for many years phoned me to wish me and my daughters Happy Christmas....wait for it.....he then said he was off to have xmas dinner with the family!!!

Gotta be something bad in all that.

LightCraft.

Thanks for the info. I guess I didn't realize there were different orders of Masonry. I would like to know more than they tell us about them but that will not be. There is a small Lodge in our little town but I do not know any of them.

Then I come to realize there is a lot of high order Masons in high places of leadership in a lot of denominational churches.

Thanks

Truthiron.

Firstly, Merry Christmas to all Brethren and non-brethren.

Masons celebrate the winterfest in accordance with their preferred religion, like anyone else. Why? Because they are just like you. They have families and kids, jobs, dreams and aspirations.

Oh, and regarding the KY Jelly.....................I find that lard works better on Koalas.

Happy Holidays.

To answer the original question.

Like this.

"MERRY CHRISTMAS to ALL. May the peace of the season be unto you and your family."

Merry Christmas to you too Brother! And to the rest of the ATS Brethren and to all of the non Masons too! Happy tidings to you all.

I plan on celebrating my christmas in the the traditional Martin family way..... Get drunk off beer, egg nog and cider, than go play in the snow!
Everything in temperance of course, Brothers!

snow? I thought you were in the warm climate? Though I guess all you need to do is drive up a mountain. Remember not to mix the cider and beer. hangovers are deadly in that situation. Merry Christmas to all. Archer, lard, really? Dude, you Germans are wild.

Now if I was home for the holidays, my day would've probably started out with a nice Winter drive to my parents house in the middle of nowhere Idaho. Ham steak, bacon, eggs, and sourdough hotcakes for breakfast with hot chocolate to wash it down. Me and my nephew would hang out till everyone was ready for presents. Then in the afternoon, we'd go over to one of my aunt's houses and have dinner. Usually while waiting my uncle and I would slip into the side room and grab the best bourbon we could find and drink ourselves into relaxation. Sometimes I'll even share the good stuff with my Brother-in-law. We'd stay up till Logan fell asleep and then slowly we filter out and head home. I'd go back to my sister's house (where I was living), grab my Springer Spaniel, Dodger, and go to bed.

Alas, I'm overseas right now so none of that is able to happen. I did get an awesome late night present. My sister sent me a video call request on Skype and I was able to see my entire family. It was awesome to see them, and my nephew kept popping up randomly in the video. He's so cute. I can't believe he's 3. Gotta love technology.

Muslims don't celebrate Ramadan, that's the month for fasting, they celebrate Eid. Eid ul adha and Eid ul Fitr.

It is a religious observance that is unchanged by membership in the oldest fraternity...

There are those that would disagree with you...

Most US Masons celebrate Christmas with their families. Most US Masons celebrate the birth of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (this is NOT official Mason philosophy) or Chanukah.

My family goes to Grandma's house on the 23rd, stays up late playing card games until the kids (and me) fall asleep and then Santa visits. We get up early on the 24th, open presents, eat a big breakfast and then travel home for celebrating with other family members.

On Christmas Eve we go to the United Methodist Church to celebrate with a candlelight ceremony, again to honor the birth of Jesus (HOW EVIL!!!).

Santa comes on the 24th and Christmas morning we watch the boys open presents and usually spend all day lounging.

Two holidays honored by many US Masonic Lodges are St. John the Baptist Day and St. John the Evangelist day when we plan trips to a local church service.

Sorry to disappoint, but personally I don't believe in Satan or Lucifer. I've never heard these words in Lodge except to make fun of anti-Masons.

I have a confession to make, though. I am in charge of Masonic Education for my Lodge and last month, with a drought of topics, I did a "Top Ten" list of ATS Masonic Conspiracies.

The LEGO Atlantis illuminati conspiracy drew the most raucous laughter, and and was almost too much for our older members to handle.

Anyway, keep posting those conspiracies because they make for a lot of laughs at Lodge.

HAHA!

That's awesome.

The next time my wife asks why I'm taking too long in the bathroom, I'm going to tell her I'm 'polishing my masonic regalia'.

I know plenty of Masons. I'm a girl, so I am not one, but I can vouch for the fact that all of the Masons I know are very good people. They are very responsible people, and the majority are openly Christian.

Oh, and to answer your question, although I'm sure others already have, they celebrated Christmas yesterday, just like the rest of us. Like the rest of us meaning giving gifts, getting together with family, playing Christmas music and eating like hogs. That's how the Masons I know celebrated.

Granted, I don't know any 33rd degree Masons, but there's my knowledge on the question asked.

I will also admit, that I wish I could have been creative enough to pop off with a smart ass remark like the first few posters in the thread, but sadly, I'm not feeling that creative today.
However, they do get stars from me. I do love a good sense of sarcasm.

I am usually in the warm climate, Bro. Cali is actually raining cats and dogs though. Either way we're back in Indiana visiting with family... and I'm running a snow plow.

Christmas was great! I did exactly as planned and ate way too much. The goat sacrifice didn't go quite as planned because some jerk forgot the goat so that one will have to wait until next year


Happy New Year to you all! Be safe on the roads should any of you be traveling


PS, you guys get anything stronger than sweet tea for the holidays, dude?

We have some Mountain Dew in the back of the fridge that I thought was "Throwback" cans, but turns out it was the original cans.

Probably fermented by now. I'd ship some to your lodge but I have to pay extra for HazMat insurance.

Personally I know me and my brethren like to get some tinsil, garland ornements and decorate Yithians whose projected minds are elsewhere like Christmas trees, when they get back they're sooooo pissed......

course it can take a asamkhya kalpa of waiting before they decide to come back....
