It's a dark and lonely time in the northern hemisphere.

I was drunk and now I just have a headache, which makes me grumpy.

I'm sure my mood will gradually get better as the days get longer again; hopefully everyone else will be in the same boat then the Pit can live in harmony until it gets all dark and dingy for the Aussies.

I'm not pissed of at xmas, I just don't believe in it. If anything, I'm pissed off at all the people (including shops, TV stations and other organisations) who shove it down your throat by playing all the crappy christmas songs for weeks on end.

you dont believe in Christmas? I guess you dont believe in your birthday either? Or everything else that requires no specific doctrine to either submit to or vehemently decline?


That makes no sense. Gary Billington is an old man name. I think you're the oldest **** in the pit.

Way to ruin the thread, which is exactly what a drunk Christmas hater would do.

My birthday is a fact. I was born on that day.

Christmas celebrates the birthday of a fictional character and therefore is not a fact. The date was chosen as it was previously the date of a Pagan festival and therefore many of the people who were converted to Christianity during the Dark Ages already recognised that date as a religious celebration.

Back in those days, religion was the only form of media available to the people and it generally provided an answer to a lot of questions that have now been answered by science. As science has disproved a lot of the answers religion provided, there is no longer a need to celebrate religion.

lol, I didn't even finish reading this post, that's how full of faggotry it is.

Christmas is a nice time regardless. I drank beers with my dad & uncle & cousins tonight, it was sweet. Grow up, dude.

Jesus was written about by several other notable historians (Josephus, Titus) only a few years after his death. It's one thing to not believe he's the Son of God, but Jesus Christ the man was very real indeed. BUT YOU'RE AN ATHEIST SO NOTHING IS ACCEPTABLE EXCEPT YOUR VIEWS AND FUCK THE DOUBLE STANDARD amirite

basically, shut up

yeah i don't think most people who celebrate christmas give two shits about jesus. it's just a happy time to take a break from nonsense and get a clear head. even if they did, it doesn't affect how i am this time of year. it's just happy happy winter time, with a break from school/work for me. i guess i just don't get how people could be so irritable when it's vacation!

How many people do you actually know, that nowadays celebrate Christmas because Jesus was born on that day? It's just a week off, to spend time with your family and friends, relax, and/or get drunk. However, if you want to get all snobby with the "I don't believe in Christmas cuz it's fake" thing, then be my guest. You'll just look a bit ridiculous in the process. Meanwhile, most sane people will be having lots of fun, without worrying about the meaning of Christmas.

yeah i agree with the fact that lots of people never consider religion to be a part of christmas.(they never mentioned Jesus in Nightmare Before Christmas) but i also believe that there are those who take Christmas as an open invitation to convert everyone they have contact with to Christianity.

listen to me! i sound like an atheist!

I never said there wasn't a person called Jesus who did some good things in his time, but that's no reason to create a religion about him with all the myths and legends that go with it. Lots of other people do just as much for humanity every day.

Yes, he should be mentioned as a part of cultural history, but no more so than 1,000s of other significant people.

EDIT - just to clarify, the bible references Jesus as a fictional character in it's story, the historical work references Jesus as an actual person.

Alright, you guys do realize that all of Christmas outside of the birth of Jesus is Pagan, right? The tree, the gifts, the decorations; all of that.

It's not Catholic. At all. And Santa Claus was actually a villain that terrorized small villages with his 'elves,' that led children out of their homes and whipped them with chains and implements. Just thought I'd put that out there. Look it up.

Anyway, you're arguing for no reason. Have a cup of egg nog and a smile.
