Christmas just a money scheme? Merry Christmas my ass..
What are we really saying, when we say Merry Christmas to each other? Merry Christmas to what? What is merry about one day out of the year? One freaking day? Really? This never made sense to me. Is merry christmas about giving and receiving love peace and joy? Then we should be saying merry christmas everyday and practice kindness, love and patience of each other everyday!!! What a joke.

We are a bunch of puppets, following a dumb tradition of spending money we don't have year after year, paying off your credit card the following year, only to repeat the same ole boring rituals...using our children used as pawns.

And the PTB are laughing all the way....Ho Ho Ho.

Re: Christmas just a money scheme? Merry Christmas my ass..
Right on, OP.

I'm sitting here at a home with no Christmas tree, lights, presents or any of that nonsense. I bought no one presents. I sent out no cards. I haven't wished anyone ~merry Christmas~.

I have family members who get ANGRY over shopping, over decorating, over cooking... for what? What if you just stepped off the roller coaster and said, "I'm not doing this anymore?" Who is compelling you to take part in all this madness?

Yes, I got off that roller coaster in 1986 and haven't looked back. No gifts and family chaos. It's so nice to be free of the stress at a time which is suppose to be relaxing and enjoyable. Now I'm just a spectator watching all the madness unfold. But some members of my family are catching on. LOL.

Thanks for responding and enjoy your day!

People are Lemmings - that said there are many people who love the idea of taking off from work, spending time with family and eating a good meal. The other crap (black Friday and buying unnecessary crap) is just a giant sales tactic.

"True" meaning comes from yourself. The day itself is inherently void of meaning. It is each of us who project meaning on to it.

For some, the meaning is greed

For some, the meaning is giving

For some, the meaning is pagan

For some, the meaning is celebration

For some, the meaning is family

For some, the meaning is spiritual

Maybe the better question to ask, then, is, what does the day draw out of each of us?

These idiots on the news channels keep talking about where Santa's sleigh is, how Narad is tracking it and on and on. Do people actually think this is clever and entertaining? I just change the channel-it It is condescending and infintile. You wanna get drunk and party, or lie to your kids because you think it is "cute?" -so be it, but quit acting like you are honoring Christ. You are not....

Its for the kids, and its brainwashing at its most basic level. Hit them while they are young and it will sink in. Its how things have gotten so bad. People can't give up the nostalgia and sentimental feeling of the time of year and its sad.

The gift of giving? People who truly enjoy giving do it year round and especially to those who are less fortunate. Anyone who thinks its normal for the people living in the richest country to give gifts to each other and not of those in poor countries have some serious issues. How many people in the world starve during our buying season? Not to mention the other rich countries in the world. Its sickening!

Re: Christmas just a money scheme? Merry Christmas my ass..
yes lets follow the mass and the sheep...

teach our kids of an invisible character and story, buy into all the gift giving of mass proportions, fight the traffic, fight the stressed out crowds, put up with the stressed out family members, keep teaching the kids a lie, help propel the economy and business's before the end of the 4th quarter..

it is a scam...

fine, enjoy getting together with all family members at this time of the year..you have a loving family, share the good times..spend money if you have it..what percentage of americans do the above account for..

i will teach my kids the joy of giving gifts, on a day that has no real meaning, except enjoying the time with family and friends...

For on this day a child was born - Jesus the Christ.
The star on top of the tree symbolizes what the wise men followed. The giving of gifts symbolizes what the wise men gave. This day symbolizes the birth of Christ as Easter symbolizes the resurrection.

This is a Christian holiday.

You're wrong! Jesus was born at a time of year that the flocks were still in the fields, Luke 6.

Stop spreading this lie because you will pay for it. What you're spreading is the story Satan has come up with to trap you. Its a pagan holiday as is Easter. Now you have been warned, if you continue its all on you.

Its a false Christianity holiday. Real followers of Christ give to those in need, all the time, and tell no one. This will all be clear one day but on that day it will be too late to wake up.
