It's Christmas, not "Winter Festivities"

Since I am such a music nerd, I am co-president of the music council at my high school. As a result, I was a key figure in organizing our annual "Winter" Concert. *takes a bow*. I was also an MC, and made the mistake of referring to Christmas in my script. This was, of course, a complete no-no, because, you know, this concert has NOTHING to do with Christmas AT ALL. EVAR.

Which brings me to my point. ITS CHRISTMAS. GET OVER IT. I'm an atheist. I know that this holiday is supposed to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ (who was, incidentally, actually born in July. But that's another post), and I also don't believe in Jesus Christ as the figure presented in the bible. And I also don't care. Christmas is a time of year. If someone came up to me and said "Happy Hannukah" I would say "Happy Hannukah to you too". I wouldn't say "I won't say Happy Hannukah because it's not my religion and I find it offensive". Or if I wanted to say that I would just mumble an unintelligible snippet to that effect.

But that's not to say that it's the fault of all non-Christians that we have this whole OH NOES CANT SAY CHRISTMAS problem. No, it is the fault of the hyper-sensitive and overly politically correct society that exists today in North America.

So my point is:

MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HANNUKAH AND KRAZY KWANZAA (sorry, I have absolutely no idea what goes in front of Kwanzaa. Any tips?) EVERYONE

No one knows what kwanzaa is, not even Kwanzaa bot.

(I would have commented on your most recent post, but I had no idea what you were talking about. Linux hates my soul.)
