    Way to be insensitive to a forum of mostly christains and maybe hindu's, muslims, jews, zorastrians, satanists, druids, norsemen, scientologists, buddhists, baha'I, shinto, various native beliefs including north american, australian, south america, europe, asian, and the relgion I made up so my house can be tax-exampt.

    That reminds me ! I need to get my Holiday tree !

    Any very religious person would have probably criticized you as soon as they laid eyes on your comment.

    "Christmas" to some, "We're almost physically hurting ourselves in our desperate attempts to be politically correct day" to others.

    The Christmas topic is early this year. I wonder what that says about the holiday itself... :grin:

    Finally, it's actually comin' early!

    As my muslim friend so....eloquently.... put it, "It's my f***ing culture as a Canadian so don't you dare tell me a christmas tree is offensive. I find THAT offensive"

    Much funnier of I could stick up an audio clip of that rant......

    The only thing that really gets me ticked about it is the way Christmas has become so commercialized.

    It became commercialized a long time ago.What pisses me off is how it's becoming politically incorrect due to the fact that a few non-christians find it offensive.F*ck them I say.

    Even remembrance day up here is becoming mildly commercialized. I remember there being a beenie baby with poppies all over but as someone put it "it was like a beenie baby riddled with bullets" That was even funnier due to the fact our poppies have black in the middle rather than green.

    I agree with SturmTiger, although I would have put it somewhat more mildly. And I would much rather see the emphasis returned to celebrating the birth of Christ. But if someone prefers to go the secular, Santa Claus route, that is their prerogative. I do NOT, however, want them telling me that His birth is not to be celebrated.

    I'm just making my point in a brutally honest fashion.I find it to be incredibly irritating when people attempt to infringe upon others constitutional rights while hiding behind same said Constitution.

    Glad to be back, David. I believe that you know about my surgery, which is why I've been gone so long.

    First Christmas catalog arrives in the mailbox:
    September 10. (L.L. Bean)

    At my university office, we are not allowed to have a "Christmas Tree" as it might offend an arab fundamentalist who wants to see all Christians dead, or perhaps a non-believer from Sri Lanka.
    I hear Halloween is next. Some schools are not allowing kids to dress-up in costume. It might offend some ghouls or goblins.
    Curse Bill Clinton, Al Gore and this entire notion of political correctness.
