Happy Life Day


As we all gather round for the upcoming holiday, the release of Episode VII, it’s a good time to sit down with family and reflect on just how godawful mixing Star Wars and Christmas have been in the past.

Holiday wrap-up


On vacation this week, so light posting.

Since it was an all Frozen Christmas for my daughter, I figured this would be appropriate to link back to:

More gift ideas for the faithful…


Not to just pick on the Scientologists, here are 20 more gift ideas for the religious folks in your life. The main difference is that these gifts will only set you back maybe $20.

Having worked in a Christian retailer for a number of years, I can assure you that I’ve seen most of these in real life. And that makes me incredibly depressed.

Bah, humbug.

In the spirit of the holidays…


The worst nativity sets ever. (via The Thinking Atheist)

Having worked in a Christian retailer for several years, I’m pretty sure I’ve seen the nativity set of bears before, so yes, I can believe that all of these and many tackier things like them exist.

Best Christmas Gift Ever…


Sometimes, there are days when I doubt that God notices me. Sometimes, there are low points in my life when I question everything I’ve ever believed in.

And then there is today:

Of course, given that Christmas has invaded September and decorations and stuff started showing up in Costco BEFORE LABOR DAY the “War on Christmas” is complete crap meant to inspire and feed the persecution complex that has taken root in some Christian circles.

But you keep fighting the good fight, Kirk. I hear Independence Day has been talking crap about Christmas, so we’re going to need a sequel about taking the Fourth of July for Jesus. I look forward to the day when the third movie in the trilogy comes out and Christmas curb stomps Easter to take over as the one true holiday for Christianity.

Merry Christmas


My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?

– Bob Hope

May the Lord bless you this day as we remember that the greatest love is not merely words, but a very personal and continual giving of ourselves to one another in the highest imitation of Christ who left His heavenly domain and put on human flesh and limitations that He might be a light to we who were living in darkness, who spent His earthly life attending to our physical and spiritual needs, and who ultimately gave His life that mankind might share in His eternal state.

Merry Christmas


Presented because seriously… it’s Christopher Lee doing metal covers of Christmas carols. If this doesn’t put you in the Christmas spirit, check yourself for green fur and a heart three sizes too small.

Perspective


As you begin to stress because there’s only two weeks left until Christmas and you haven’t bought a single present, take heart and remember… there’s only 10 days left to the end of the world, so won’t you look awesome having not wasted your time fighting crowds in a mall as the meteor destroys New York City (because meteors always destroy New York City) and plunges us into a long ice age.

Holiday ettiquette…


Rather than taking sides in the “War on Christmas” (of which Christmas has not only won, but is fast taking over Halloween), it is perfectly acceptable to simply wish someone a hearty “Bah! Humbug!” until Christmas day itself.
