First, I don't care. Take "Jingle Bells" and "Frosty" and even Nativities out of the the schools and malls and rest stops and whatever. I. Don't. Care. One less garish yard to see. Good riddance.

|Zombie Halloween Christmas action figure. Pfft..who would want that...really...who..oh who?|
|Before the liberals, in the ol' days Christmas was about Jesus and family and...oh, nevermind.|
Here's my fantasy and probably will come to fruition. If it does, I'm a freakin' prophet!

Sooner or later, someone will say, "Why am I at WalMart buying plastic cr@p for my relatives on a deadline for December 25th?" And someone will reply, "Iunno. We just always have done it." Then one will say, "No more. I'll give plastic cr@p when I'm ready to. If ever." And then, over a short period of time, we just have winter without a brief interval involving fake tinsel, blinky lights and blow up Snowmen in yards.
|Tony Danza, you don't have to steal Christmas. Just take it. Take it, my mulleted Santa.|
Just think of it. At one time, in many countries, every "Mass" day ( or "mas") was celebrated with revelries and songs. The "holy days" (holi-days, get what I'm saying?) were days of rest and feasting. People may have exchanged gifts, proposed to their mates, delivered goods to the poor or worn special outfits. These were Christian days of celebration! And then, someone took the Christ out of them and people quit after a while. It's like having a Grove Saturday without football. Sooner or later, someone will say, "Why are we here?"
But we Catholics will always celebrate our Mass days and Holy days. We will always "egg up" on Easter, Hallow down on "Hallow's Eve" and Christ on Christmas.
|Good ol' Black and White Christmas! The way God intended it.|
