    Good for you!

    Christmas used to be my favorite time of the year. I haven't celebrated it in about 7 years. I can't wait until December when I can finally enjoy it once more.

    I bought my girlfriend a birthday gift yesterday. It felt weird.

    Your gift was the severed head of one of her enemies, right? Having been raised a JW, I understand that it isn't really a birthday unless someone gets beheaded.

    Billy, the whole idea of banning birthdays just because the two mentioned events in the bible did not have a happy ending for some seemed ludicrous to me. I just couldn't wrap my head around it (pun intended). Today I understand that it's one way a cult brainwashes it's victims: systematically breaking down a individuals sense of self.
