You know the holiday season is stressful and all that... oh, and the world's ending too, so that might put a damper on things.
In November 2012, David Frum talked about how the conservative entertainment complex destroyed the Republican's chance at winning the election, and in De... no, wait, still November 2012, only 11 days after the election, Fox has already gone into full "War on Christmas" mode. Incredible.
It would be nice if there were at least two parties in America so the Democrats would stop shifting to the right. Please knock it the fuck off, guys.
Christmas is awful.
I had, in recent years, finally got my family to do away with presents, and instead just pool our "christmas" money for a charity each year. But now my brother is involved with a girl with a 2 year old kid, so mom's had sudden "grandma shock" and expects everyone to make with the old fashioned holiday.
If you ask me, it's xmas itself that makes grinches like me.
Taking Jesus out of Christmas, sure, whatever. But no PRESENTS?
The fuck's wrong with you?!
Christmas sucks really bad when you don't have anyone under the age of 35 in your family.
But if they take the Nativity down, where will Jesus go to be born?

Republicans ruin my Christmas every year.
This has gone on for so long that it just wouldn't feel like Christmas anymore without Fox declaring their imaginary war over it.
Its an official tradition. You know Christmas is around the corner when you start hearing about somebody trying to take it away
Are they still doing that complaining about "Happy Holidays"? They're basically complaining about people being nice to Jews, how do they not get called out on that?
It's not even that. I grew up in Catholic Ireland, and Happy Holidays was said probably more often than Merry Christmas around the season, since there were a lot of holidays, and you were referring to their time off work/school as a holiday. Merry Christmas you said more before the actual last days of Christmas.
It's not that Christmas isn't being included or celebrated by others, it's that they're whining they aren't able to force their particular version of Christianity onto others. They feel entitled to deference and cry about the downfall of 'traditional' culture when they don't get it. Fox complains people are doing Christmas wrong by not making it all about supply-side Jesus, when it was a pagan holiday banned by Christianity and the church to begin with, and has very little in practice to do with their religion.
When they try to suggest the meaning is lost, they don't talk about peace, charity or shunning materialism. They talk about public displays of piety and loyalty to their places of worship, which are two things Jesus railed against the Jewish establishment for.
There are nativity scenes all over the place up here in heathen, atheist, LIEbral New England.
I blame the Italians.
Oh, it annoys me so much when they say "THERE ARE NO NATIVITIES IN SANTA MONICA!"
No, the city stopped hosting one in a public park because it was becoming a pain to manage. I was there last weekend, and there were already several nativites in shops, outside churches, and I'm sure at some residences. The government saying they're letting people celebrate Christmas themselves rather than getting involved, is not the same as "CHRISTMAS IS CANCELED FOR EVERYONE!"
Same damn thing when they complain about prayer in school and reading the Bible being banned. It's such a blatant lie, most schools have Christian clubs and students who do it every day. It's simply that the school can't tell students to do it, or endorse one religion over others. But that's the same as "NO CHRISTIANITY" to people who think God gave them dominion not just over earth, but over everyone else.
Folks, Christmas is cancelled..attention.
Can we just start the war on CHRISTIANS already!? I'm ready to see how much Muslims will pay for scalps.

Is that Adam Carolla on Bill-O?
I really wish there were enough pagans left to bitch about a war on their holidays. "The War on Yule", "The Slaughter of Samhain", "The Imbolc Impalement", "The Banishment of Beltainne". There are still the wiccans but they aren't going to do anything cool ever.
Wiccans are totally cool. They're going to the forest to dance naked and perform secret rites.
You're not invited. Now you are the one who is not cool enough!
Wiccans DO bitch about these things, but you have to know one personally to come in contact with those views, and it's not as much fun to listen to when the guy is standing right next to you, no Mute Button or nothin'.
What you're talking about is the 90's, when furries and pagans were the same group (and highly misanthropic, ha!). As time went on, the religion was jettisoned and mascot suits were adopted. In trade for "humans rape nature and must be culled" they started going to conventions and yiffing. It's an improvement.
What we need are more angry astronomers to defend the solstices and equinoxes.
