Ah Chrismakuh...how glorious of a season you are. You get to bring out the best and worse in people. For example: Project Blue Santa--good (not to mention the fact that this organization gets thousands of unwrapped toys which they then go and wrap...that's a lot of wrapping), and psychotic christians--bad. Yes, that's right, psychotic christians. I believe I have found my arch nemeses...Everyone knows of this type of person--the person that is personally offended that someone dare say "happy holidays" instead of "merry christmas". they'll claim that "people have taken the christ out of christmas" which guess what? not everyone is christian. There are tons of other religions, so yes, "Happy Holidays" is what you say to people when you aren't sure if they're christian...but then, at the same time, there isn't a muslim, hindu, or buddhist holiday around christmas, so maybe it would be best if we just didn't say anything to anyone about religious holidays unless you absolutely know without a doubt what religion the person is...hmm, that could work nicely, though i'm sure the psychotic christians would still be upset because they need to be recognized...stupid attention seeking whores.
