Okay....I tried reading the whole thread about not taking Christ out of Xmas http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/6/97085/1.ashx, but really, no, that is just too much to read through...and I figured no one would both to see what I had written ANYWAY...so here are a few other reasons for those of you to celebrate on Dec 25th if you don't have "Christ in your Christmas"
I suppose if you don't have christ in your christmas we could call it "Christmas Lite" or "Christ Free Christmas" "NonChrist Latte with half decaf"
1. Isaac Newton's bday...a giant in math and phyics
2. Clara Barton's bday..the found of the Red Cross, an organization that over the past 100 years has done as much or even more good than many Christian churches for humanity in general
3. Jimmy Buffet's bday...I don't think I have to go into detail on how important Jimmy Buffet is to the world. As far as I am concerned, if there is a paradise, cheeseburgers will be plentiful there.
4. Winter Solstice...or THANK GOODNESS THE DAYS ARE FINALLY GOING TO START GETTING LONGER!! SUNSHINE AWAITS US ALL!!!
Oh and a reason to have a moment of silence for the travesties and injustices in America, because Dec 25th is also the bday of Karl Rove.Try not to let that interfere with the day's good mood and festivities.
What reasons, beside Jesus do YOU have to celebrate on December 25th?
