What? Why do the atheists want to take away its federal holiday status? Are they mad because their holiday isn't a federal one?
Come on. One of the main reasons why it being a federal holiday is so important is because it allows people to take days off, even if it's one, to
spend time with their family on a day that has evolved from being about Christianity. Sure, a lot of people see it as a huge corporate crapfest, but
once you get passed all the material garbage surrounding the holiday, you'll see there is something there that truly makes it such a happy and joyous
occasion. I want it to keep it's federal holiday status. It'll allow for more people to get time off to spend time with their families.
I have always seen Christmas as the happiest time of the year for me. Usually it's spent with most of my extended family for a couple of weeks. I know
it may not be the case for a lot of people, but there are also other people that are like me. I just think it's selfish for them to want to take that
away. Look passed the religion and materialism and look at the happiness that usually surrounds the time of year.
I am the Champion of Christmas. You mess with Christmas, you mess with me! It's....it's my favorite time of year...
ETA: After I posted this I realized something: let's not just make it about Christmas. As much as I enjoy Christmas and celebrating it and saying
Merry Christmas, I have to recognize that it's politically correct (even thought I hate that in most cases) to walk around saying that to people who
don't celebrate the holiday. It's a time of happiness and it shouldn't be just for those celebrating Christmas but any holiday they choose to
celebrate during this time.
ETA2: Forgot to mention Mr. Bill O'Reilly. I admit that sometimes I agree with his in-your-face style, but most of the time I find him annoying and
down right rude. Take this here for example, he just looks like an idiot to me.
