It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

I always found the whole "War on Christmas" to be overblown in the first place.

There's nothing wrong with trying to be inclusive and it's a shame that any attempts to do so are automatically seen as a war on Christmas. There's also nothing wrong with someone wishing you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays or Season's Greetings. Just be glad someone chose to say something nice to try to pick up your spirits.

Spend less time worrying about the specifics of the greeting and more time feeling good about the spirit.

I'll add that "Holiday Tree" is bull.

It's a CHRISTMAS TREE. Anyone calling it a Holiday Tree needs to get over themselves.

Happy Holidays goes back to Irving Berlin and Bing Crosby. Does anyone seriously want to argue that they were Muslim infiltrators?

Whenever someone makes a point of correcting me when I say "Happy Holidays" by saying "Merry Christmas", I remind them that Christmas is on the 25th and they should only say it then.

Real thanksgiving is before halloween anyway. :)

Ah Canada. Where news reporters can still use the term "Christmas lights" without worry about someones feelings getting hurt. (apart from the guy who fell off the roof)

Let the Christians take the boring stupid shiat out of Christmas and let the rest of us keep the fun stuff. The trees, the presents, the getting drunk and having a good time with your friends and family. Yeah we'll keep doing that, you christians can keep going to church on the 25th and stop whining about what a good time everyone else is having with the traditions you coopted and are seeking to reject.

my new neighbor has c7 and c9 light bulbs from the 1960's on his house. damn it takes me back in time. back to when bulbs were still glass and they would burn through snow and ice with the heat they threw off. i remember neighborhood snowball fights because we would take off our gloves and warm our hands around the front yard tree that had the most lights. why not go inside to warm up? because mom said we can go outside once and not again because we will track all that snow and mud into the house. we'd freeze our bumskys off sledding and stuff knowing once we hit the kitchen floor we had to stay in. oh and the dumbasses would put these outside lights on the inside tree and then wonder how the tree caught on fire and burned the house down. good times. dad would give me a little bit of money to buy new bulbs to replace burnt out ones. i learned to look and listen and rattle the bulbs and maybe get a filament to lip itself and work again and i'd carefully place it so it wouldn't be jarred . so i'd get 1/4 of the bulbs to work again and pocket the money saying i replaced them.

Looks like Jeremiah was wrong about the supernatural abilities of festive holiday trees.

The real meaning of christmas: murderous idols decorated with silver and gold.

I feel old, since I got C9's strung up on the house and won't let the boys back in unless it's dark and my wife tells me to unlock the door or someone's bleeding visibly.

You can get them at target anymore. I can't find the old school plastic snowmen or santas though. :(

Irving Berlin and Bing Crosby were Muslim converts who infiltrated Hollywood.

This is why I love living in an apartment. A wreath on the door, a couple of strings of lights around the windows, and I'm done. Decorating for Christmas took me 20 minutes this year.

You Griswolds determined to literally outshine the neighbors can have a holy jolly hell.

Do you have any idea how long it takes Fox News and other more lame stream msm media to find atheists to fuel War on Christmas stories for December? They start looking in July! If all atheists started lightening up there would be nothing to report on.

I know this is a troll but the fun fact is that if you took out all the non-christian stuff from christmas you'd have a lot of people sitting around church all day singing.

Fun reading from our Catholic friends:

Old people. No, seriously. That's how I made money after mowing lawns and raking leaves were done for the season, but before there was enough snow to make money off my parent's older neighbors by shoveling. Hanging Halloween and Xmas decorations (and taking them down again, and dragging out the Xmas tree for them, etc) was good money for a 15 year old. Not so much when you're 24 I'd guess, but it's better than nothing.

Unless you, ya know, fall and end up in critical condition.

Rich people. Friend of mine has a business specialising in it and makes decent money doing swank places in north Toronto. Some people spend thousands (labour alone can be >$3k) - professional design and dozens and dozens of strings of high-end lights threaded on every tree branch and edge of their gigantic houses.

Oshawa generally doesn't have that kind of dough (at one point it had one of the highest average incomes of any city in Canada, but that was before the auto industry collapse.) This was probably someone old and/or busy hiring the local Young Guy Who Does Stuff for a few bucks so they didn't have to get up on a ladder and risk their own critical injuries.
