That is why I do not do Christmas, Easter or Halloween. The only Holiday I can get with is Thanksgiving. Even though I understand that this is a day that celebrates the time when the pilgrims swindled the Native American's out of their land and knowledge of that land, I can still get with being thankful for the blessings that God has bestowed upon you. I believe that you should give thanks everyday that you wake up breathing, but the way Thanksgiving has evolved into just taking time out to appreciate all the blessings in your life, is alright with me.
But the other holiday's.... Naaa. I can't fuck with them.
No where in the Bible does it say that we are supposed to celebrate the day Jesus was born. No where in the Bible does it say what day Jesus was born. If it is in there somewhere, somebody please shoot me an email so I can read it for myself. What makes a sane parent tell his kids that a fat White Man with flying reindeer has somehow delivered all the gifts under the tree in the middle of the night Christmas Eve, when 9 times out of 10 those same kids were with you when you brought those gifts at Wal-Mart?
Naaa.... I can't fuck with that.
And Easter... Come on Son. What the hell does a rabbit laying eggs have to do with Jesus being resurrected?
Why would I lie to my kids like that?
Man please. Why would I allow my kids to celebrate a day that is geared towards everything EVIL and DEMONIC? How in the hot ass hell does dressing up as a vampire or a serial killer represent anything "christian?"
It is all bullshit to me.
This is why I do not consider myself a Christian. How can I associate myself with something that embraces and endorses shit that I am opposed to?
None of this shit is Christ-Like.
And why does this time of year everyone all of a sudden starts to think of the people that have been struggling the whole year? And after the holiday has come and gone will the ONE meal on Christmas or the TOYS for HOMELESS kids help them out the rest of the year?
Isn't Christians supposed to be helpful to the needy all year instead of one damn day out of the year?
It is hypocritical to me and I can't fuck with it.
If I see you need help, I will help you until you don't need it, or until I see that you are using me, which ever comes first.
The time of year doesn't even factor into the equation. One meal will not last all year. Toys do not help kids with no where to play with them.
But this shit here? This "Holiday" season, " Be cheerful and Ho Ho Ho" shit?
I ain't gonna be able to do it.
