Merry ChristmasDec 25th, 2012 | By Mookee | Category: Blog
Merry Christmas everyone! That’s right, Merry Christmas (or as Cartman would say, “Merry F@#!ing Christmas”). Why so aggressive? Because, while I understand the separation of church and state, I don’t understand the need for people to prevent someone else from celebrating whatever they want in whatever way they want to celebrate it. If I say, “Merry Christmas” to someone, and they say, “Happy Hanukkah,” or, “Go Kwanzaa,” or “Wahoo Solstice,” then awesome! Good for them. Why does there have to be NONE? It seems to me that if that is the case and that’s the constitutionally protected stance, then aren’t we promoting one “belief” (or in this case, non-belief) over another?
Working in the public sector, I run into this sort of thing all the time. It finally got to the point at work where I just stopped putting any decorations up at all. I had a menorah and a tree, and told anyone who wanted to put anything else out that they were welcome to do so, but in the end I just got tired of justifying it to everyone and just stopped putting anything out at all. Of course, no one has any problem with the myriad of Buddha statues I have on the shelf, but that’s apparently not advocating a religion … in my case it’s just advocating being fat and happy.
So, in the time of giving and celebration, let’s remember that without Christmas there wouldn’t be a reason to take a lot of time off (regardless of what religion/non-religion you celebrate), drink with friends and relatives, or have your sister give you a personalized bobblehead that looks like you!!! — Greatest looking bobblehead EVER!
Merry Christmas everyone, regardless of how you celebrate it.
