I’m getting really tired of hearing all about this War on Christmas bullshit. Every year it’s the same thing – some lunatic fringe group of incredibly oversensitive left-wing yahoos convince some town in the middle of nowhere to ban Nativity scenes or some shit like that, and then the 24 hour news cycle is off and running for weeks and weeks and weeks. Enough is enough already!
People need to just relax and not get offended by every single little thing when it comes to religion or the lack thereof. I don’t know what it is about Christmastime that turns normal people from every side of the whole religion debate into raging assholes, but it’s time to stop being rabid dickholes and chill the fuck out. Drink some spiked eggnog or something and queue up The Big Lebowski on Netflix or something, and don’t keep getting all bent out of shape if someone wishes you a Happy Holidays instead of a Merry Christmas, or vice-versa.
Life is really too god damned short for any of this ridiculous bullshit to matter, and especially not now at this time of year. It doesn’t matter what flavor of religious belief you have, as there’s nothing stopping you from celebrating the season in a secular, cultural manner in any way, shape, or form. Christmas, Yule, Hannukah, Kwanzaa – call it whatever the fuck you want, just spend it with friends and family and be happy, damn it.
I swear, the next person that tells me that “we need to put the Christ back in Christmas” is getting coal in their stocking. And by ‘stocking’ I mean ‘prolapsed rectum.’
