Well, I guess that makes me an asshole, because Christmas offends me. Not the religious part, because that would make me even more of an asshole than I am. I get offended by Christmas whenever I hear the music or see the decorations in stores, because Christianity has allowed the day that supposedly commemorates the day of their god's birth to become a celebration of the wonderful system of economy known as capitalism. So no longer is it Christmas, it's more like Capitalistmas, so **** you, I'm observing Saturnalia.

And also, the Christmas tree originated in Germany as a Pagan tradition. Also, Santa Claus came from the Netherlands, and the image we have of him today is purely for money. Boom. Red thumbs ahoy.

So do you get offended by Valentine's, Halloween, Fourth of July, and Thanksgiving, too?

I am not a religious man, but I do not condemn religion. I accept it, even when I was a Christin youth. But I still celebrate x-mas because I believe it is a progressive social practice that is important. This belief includes any and all other holidays that bring people together.

correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the tree a symbol for an old German religion?

Christmas trees have their origin in Germany and other Norse countries, where they actually sacrificed people by hanging them by the branches. They also made a wooden phallus-shaped figure which they dripped goat-blood on.

I am not even joking.

...A Christmas tree isn't a religious symbol... It is a tradition traced back to Victorian England....

So if we should be tolerant to others beliefs shouldn't we allow them to use 'symbols' if they wish? We're not allowed to tell Islamics not to wear burqa's because we have to 'respect their beliefs' and yet they are allowed to tell us to take down Christmas trees?
Yes I know its a pagen holiday but its still hypocrisy at its finest.

1. Not only Christians celebrate Christmas
2. Christmas isn't even a Christian holiday
User avatar #161 to #158 - bananarchy (12/10/2012) [-]
No it's not, it was celebrated by pagans years before the supposed birth of Christ and was merely adopted by Christians

Beliver or not, Xmas is Xmas... It's not about the faith, but about the message of peace and joy...Like the "pagan's" celebrations that exisisted before Xmas...

The worst is wishing someone "Merry Christmas" cause if they don't celebrate it; you'll get **** . I mean, why take offence when someone wishes you a merry Christmas? "Here, wish you a good time on this one ******* day of the year." If a Jewish person wished me a happy Hanukkah, I wouldn't get pissed I'd simply say "I don't celebrate it, but thank you anyway". Why do people get so worked up if you wish them a ************************************* ?
User avatar #254 to #220 - breadstickez (12/10/2012) [-]
I hate that. Wish me a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa, or just a simple Happy Holidays. I will appreciate you going out of your way to say something nice to me. Because I celebrate Christmas I wish most people a Merry Christmas, unless I know otherwise. It doesn't matter if you don't practice the religion, its just a kind wish on your behalf.

Fun Fact! Christmas isn't the only holiday that uses a pine tree to celebrate. In fact this tradition was first used by the pagans. But it is is the only religion to put a star on top.

Well I think the point that people actually make is when Christmas or Christmas things are displayed or celebrated by or in public institutions. This is because the State is supposed to be secular and they do tend to celebrate Christmas and other things such as the pledge of allegiance, where you're supposed to say "Under God" or something (I'm not American) thats also imposing a religion on those kids when they don't believe in it. These people don't have a problem with the Christmas tree but with the State representing one religion as the norm. And since you cant represent all religions (or non-religions) equally throughout the country, the State shouldn't do this with just one, but with none. Imagine the US was an Atheist Country, and Christianity is now on the rise, so the invert or what is really going on, but the State would still claim to be secular, as they do today. If you were one of these Christians, wouldn't you be offended if the State preferred one specific religion or belief over the rest? And to have countless hints and celebratory symbols and speech about this religion in things where you and your kids seek a secular equality. Christians wouldn't like that very much. If Christians just put themselves in an Atheists shoes, and understand what they think, I think we would have a lot less Christians and a lot more Atheists.

My father is Jewish and my mother calls herself a "recovering Catholic." I grew up as a Christian, technically - I used to go to church. I celebrate Christmas more for the idea of togetherness with family and giving to each other rather than the religious aspect.
As for religion, I'm apatheistic. It's very similar to agnostic/atheist, saying that "I don't know if there's a God," but it also says that "I don't care to know." I live my life without religion, and I base my morals without religious beliefs, which is something I've heard people say can't be done. Well, I'm doing it and I've been doing it for years.
Happy holidays, everyone.

If you were raised in even a somewhat religious family, your moral structure has been influenced by them (You might not directly base it on Religion, but you can't deny they still played a part the forming of your ideals).    
   
Anyways, here is a gif of a cat.
