Aren't we all adults? Seriously though, who cares about Saint Nick? I've personally got plenty of better things to do than to lie to my children and
serendipitously frolic about spending a bunch of money I don't have, on things I don't need.
A foreword to what I'm about to say: I was raised catholic, went non-denominational.. and transitioned to agnostic. (which means I believe in
something undefined by the realm of modern/archaic religion). I can empathize with christian values, but some people need to be honest with
themselves. I put it this way only for y'alls sake, the Lord gave us free will for a reason, make a judgement call and don't blindly follow everything
that falls out of your preachers mouth.
The Point: If 'we' all celebrate the holiday's in the form of christmas, why is so much of the focus placed on Saint Nick, Christmas trees, and other
pagan rituals? And why is it so important that those things be placed on the fore-front of people's minds and continually be perpetuated? Why do
people place christmas on this pedestal that it's some holy-sanctimonious tradition? 99% of you have lost what ever christian tradition was meant to
be there... hell even the story of christ is not so compelling, a new born son born under a bright star to the east followed by three wise kings? Sun,
Sirius, Orion's Belt. for christ's sake... we know he wasn't even born in december. Seriously... wtf is so damn important about christmas that our
country spends hundreds of millions of dollars decorating for christmas.... before thanksgiving is even over? It's disgusting and obsessive. See the
only thing I ever cared about during the holiday's was getting together to see my family... I didn't care about getting presents, and even as a kid I
would give most away to other kids... I didn't really care about the food, which was amazing btw... because of this I later became a Chef of a very
nice restaurant and have since moved to a different field.... but the only thing I really ever enjoyed was just sharing time with the people that
really knew me. You don't need all the other stuff... so who cares if christmas isn't being blasted into the faces of our kids or they are taking time
away from learning to go get consumer crap from an imaginary idol? I don't get you people, get your damn priorities straight... no wonder the country
is falling apart... we're all too damn busy decorating trees for 1/6 the year.
