Christmas!
« on: December 17, 2006, 09:24:07 am »
What does Christmas mean to you?

For me it's a time to be with family, simple as that. I aint a devout Christian at all so the whole birth of Christ thing means little to me. However the day Christmas is on is the same date as the Pagan midwinter feast, as the actual date of Christ's birth was never recorded they used the already existing holiday to celebrate their own beliefs. However, on looking at the pagan traditions, the feeling still seemed the same. Although it was to honor the gods, in reality it would have been an event shared with friends and family. So, however you look at it, the 25th should always be a day to be enjoyed!

Right now, Christmas means being with my family and friends, watching christmas movies (The funny thing about Christmas movies is that no matter how lame they are, they're so HEARTWARMING :3) Drinking eggnog (I like to mix mine w/ milk). The only thing I can really say I hate is seasonal radio. Back at my old job, my boss played Christmas radio every single minute the store was open, from like, the lounge-jazz station. XD Needless to say, I memorized every single song by about the third day. I'm not exactly Christian either, but it's just nice to be all together :3
Every day is Caturday~!!!

It means bad bands making bad remakes of christmas songs, or, even worse, making all new bad songs.

Being a Christian, Christmas means to me what it was originally meant for: the celebration of the birth of Christ. Usually we spend time with my grandfather and a few other family friends, and we eat with them and share, talking about the year and what has happened and what is to come in the next year. It's nothing big as our family is not very extensive, but it's nice, it's warm.

Aye, same here. :D

To me, it's a little bit of what everyone else has already said. To be together with family, open presents, and happy birthday Jesus!

For me, Christmas movies are so lame they are heart destroying.
Christmas songs are so lame i want to blow up my dads stereo.
The chaos down town makes my ass scream for my chair in front of my computer even more than usual.

Christmas means I get to work more and make more money.
It also means they play those damn Christmas songs over and over and makes work hell.

Christmas means getting together with the family (oh good god its like an Addams Family convention -.- ) having fun with friends, and wishing for it to please just this once SNOW!!! D

If I hear another verse of "I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas" I swear I'm gonna stab someone with bullets. >.<

And, of course, PRESENTS!!  :lol-fox:

Christmas means

Christ, kindling, Christian, Capitalism.
Romans, Reading, Real, Roads.
Presents, Preaching, Peace, People.
Santa, Satan, Sausage, Sacrilige.
Trees, Tumble, Through, The, Thicket.


actually I really like it when people are being nicer to each other, plus it's winter break.

My family does the Santa and gifts part, but we mostly focus on the original Christian aspects of the holiday.

I love buying presents for other people :3
