A big bugger to Christmas patrons is the tendency to hear people say “happy holidays” instead of the specific “Merry Christmas” on or around that most infamous birthday celebration, but one might argue that it’s a bit contrived. Christmas is a set date on a calendar and it is the only holiday people tend to give tithings to during the entirety of the month it falls in. There ARE other holidays in December too, you know, have we forgotten about Pearl Harbor, or the other more delicious 25th celebration, National Pumpkin Pie Day?
#2 Nativity Scenes
Every year around the holiday’s, i.e. Christmas, an avid newsreader will be bombarded with stories of injustice towards nativity enthusiasts, live or artificial. Many argue that this is an attack on religious freedom, others argue the display is inappropriate for the public, but aside from which side you take, Jesus or Judas, it seems this is ultimately an issue of how you interpret the 1st amendment, or where and how far you are willing to take it.
#3 Marketing Is A Good Way to Spread Good Will
Aside from the sales on Air Jordans (or are they Air Kobes?) the entire month of December is dedicated to Christmas. It is rare not to hear about Christmas on some form of media or another during the sacred 12th month and aside from being a huge cash-cow Christmas seems to be the biggest opportunity to promote Christianity if one chooses to do so, so capitalize!
Marketers have long tried to be concise in their delivery and since Christmas is arguably the most marketable holiday because of our religious obligation to buy iPods then what day could be better for this practice. In order to be more direct some companies will use X-mas instead of Christmas to save space or seem less sectarian, but all in all this does literally take Christ out of Christmas. Some people may be offended by this act and, sure they have every right, but nobody is forcing them to buy buy that product or associate with those wrongdoers; letters aren’t worth the fight, not this time of year!
#5 Christmas is Actually Antichrist
According to extremist or “primitive” Christian denominations the act of celebrating Christmas is synonymous to aiding to the ungodly and a direct disobedience of God himself as stated in Bible books “II Chronicles” and “Deuteronomy” so to celebrate is succumbing to Baal, or the antichrist. Both books are 8th and 9th longest books in one of the longest anthologies of all time, too, so is it any wonder why we are so ignorant to these bylaws? We can’t even remember which day we're NOT supposed to sacrifice our neighbors ox much less not even talk to that ungodly asshole.
