So every town or city should have 2 parades to please the butthurts?? It will never end. I can see Tulsa or any other city having 8 parades to
celebrate the Christmas/Holiday/ other religious celebrations. We are All Americans. Have one f'n parade and EVERYONE celebrate.
Christmas is a time when all people can celebrate different things together.
And just because we call it Christmas doesn't mean we're Christian or think it's Jesus's birthday, any more than when we ask for rum & coke we
specifically mean it has to be coca cola.
If you want to celebrate Christmas by holding sombre religious ceremonies and not decorating your home or eating and drinking to excess, thats fine.
If you want to celebrate Christmas the old way by eating and drinking and having fun, that's fine too. And even if you want to invite
Jack-in-the-Green into your house by decorating it with holly and ivy, and expect Father Christmas to bring you gifts down the chimney, that's fine
As an aside I recall a conversation I had with a devote muslim I had last year - he told me he was looking forward to Christmas; he loved all the
lights etc .....
