Lighten the F**k Up, It’s Christmas Eve!

Ugly baby

This may be my only Christmas post this year.

If you are a non-Christian (and I don’t care what kind of non-Christian you are), lighten the fuck up. You don’t have to be a Christian to celebrate Christmas, just like you don’t need to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. You are not being oppressed because someone says “Merry Christmas” to you or because there is a manger scene down in front of city hall.

If you are a Christian (and I don’t care what kind of Christian you are), lighten the fuck up. You can celebrate the birth of your savior without shoving Him down the throats of non-believers. You are not being oppressed because someone says “Happy Holidays” to you or because there is a “holiday tree” down in front of city hall.

If you were raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, lighten the fuck up. That was a long time ago, and nobody else gives a shit.

There is no one “right” way to celebrate Christmas. If you want to go to church, go to church. If you want to spend Christmas with your family, spend it with your family. If you can’t stand your family, take a trip to Vegas and party like Charlie Sheen.

You can open gifts on Christmas Eve, or Christmas Day, or you can let white Santa “deliver” them in the middle of the night. You can give out lots of gifts, or one, or none. If you enjoy the way you spend Christmas, then you did it the right way. If you don’t enjoy the way you spend Christmas, do something different next year.

There are no rules.

But most of all, don’t worry about what anyone else does. It’s none of your fucking business.

Happy Klownzaa.

    Merry Christmas, Klown. You’re a bright light in a darkening world.

    Is it just me or is Robert DeNiro getting better as he gets older?

    I mean as an actor.

      Did he not realize the statistics he quotes say that black people commit three times as many shoplifting crimes as their proportion of the population would suggest? He pretty much says store security should be watching black people more. I know, he has a right to be a race-baiting idiot.

      • The Klown says:

        The only black guy in the country who is whiter than Toure is Obama. They are both middle-class prep-schoolers who discovered blackness in college. They have lived lives of privilege and made careers out of being oppressed.

        They make Wayne Brady and Bryant Gumbel look ghetto.

    Off to the Southwest for a week….Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

    You just can’t keep these girls down:

  7. elliesmom says:

    This atheist is up early baking pies. Tonight I’ll have dinner with my daughter-in-law’s family and go to Christmas Eve services at their church. It matters to her to have her whole family there with her, and I love her. I like pretty Christmas music, the people there are great, and if they say a few prayers for me now and then, how am I harmed? Tomorrow she will join our family for a roast beef dinner, presents, and little kids. It will be mostly secular. We’ll wait a few seconds before diving into dinner while she says grace. As long as she’s quick so the potatoes don’t get cold, no one will mind a bit.

      An atheist listening to a sermon is like a guy watching ads for feminine hygiene products. He may not enjoy it but it won’t hurt him none.

      • gxm17 says:

        Said by a man who must have never had to sit through a Catholic mass. Those things go on for freakin’ ever.

        • leslie says:

          The only Catholic Mass I’ve attended that went on forever was the one at the African American Catholic “sister” church to the church I usually attended. It last more that 4 hours. But I have to tell you, It was a wonderfully moving experience

        • gxm17 says:

          The most beautiful religious ceremony I’ve attended was a Buddhist funeral. Don’t mean to offend, but I’ve never been moved by a Catholic ceremony (and given that my family is Catholic I’ve had to sit through many) but the architecture is usually quite lovely.

        • DeniseVB says:

          What goes on even longer is a Catholic High Nuptial Mass/Military Wedding. I’m surprised our guests didn’t demand their gifts back. Even I, the bride, got so punchy and bored I broke out in giggles at one point.

        • gxm17 says:

          Yeah. Sat through one of those too. Everyone, even the religious, were getting more than restless. I expected someone to stand up at any moment and yell “enough already!”

    • Mary says:

      What a lovely and loving post, elliesmom. Thank you.

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Since when did going to church become this much fun ?

  9. DandyTIger says:

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! I keep the fire going through Christmas Eve just so Santa can’t obamacare down the chimney.

    Is this new? If so good for Zoey. Not a dreadful actress either

  12. leslie says:

    It’s so cold here, that I think Santa may take a pass on this place this year. (So I bought presents for the family just in case.) It was 4 degrees last night as I was waitihg for the el to go home. And it was 3 degrees when I finally got home. This morning it is 0 degrees with wind chills waaay below that.
    This morning I have some Christmas shopping to do (for food) and then I have to finally trim the tree. (Work does indeed get in the way of life. But without work, I’d have no food or gifts to give.) This evening, I have to go into the city to pick up my daughter who had surgery and cannot drive for a while. Then I’ll drop her and some gifts off at my son’s and go to church – because I want to. I love going to this little Haitian Catholic church for Christmas Mass. It’s my personal tradition. Tomorrow is brunch with the family and then gimpy daughter and I will go to a movie – maybe Hunger Games, maybe American Hustle of Dallas Buyers’ Club.
    Merry Christmas to everyone – however you do – or don’t – celebrate it.

    My favorite Christmas Flash Mob:

  17. Awwww. From one of my uber-progressive friends on FB:


    I feel for the girl. I really do. She’s a sexually liberated single mom who wants to get married, but is afraid to hope for it. I know exactly where she’s coming from. A lot of progressive values conflict with her values. Hoping she takes advantage of this gift of enlightenment for Xmas.

    a good article on the holiday and how your personal holiday belief used to be shared and was acceptable

    The whole show, incl. commercials. Fun.

    • DandyTIger says:

      It is very interesting. Google and Facebook offered Snapchat 4 Billion. The offer was rejected. I don’t know if Snapchat themselves have staying power, but the idea of more privacy and more control of your stuff won’t go away. One problem is any encryption used to secure the content and the communication by law requires giving the government access to the back door. At least in the US. But I suspect given the NSA revelations thanks to Snowden, the push for this will only increase.

    Wishing everyone here a safe and Merry Christmas. Enjoy

    Bah humbug to all the holiday nazis

    A bit OT, or not, ran across a comment by zombie about the backlash he/she got from both Al Qaeda & the militant gay community because of photo blogging.
