Well... yes... apparently. This is the season for giving, and people like to give as good as they get. Fa la la la la, la la la la.

It is Hanukkah!!!!
How do you try to belittle this holiday by trying to claim an entire month (i.e. season)?!?
My work here is, finally, done.

I didn't know about Hanukkah, sorry. I did not intend to belittle it. My apologies. :)

Isn't that what C. K. Lewis thinks a vagina should be called?

Because, I agree. Just saying.

And, what it does to this post is just magical. Like a Christmas miracle.

'Nearly all aspects of Christmas observance have their roots in Roman custom and religion. Consider the following admission from a large American newspaper (The Buffalo News, Nov. 22, 1984): "The earliest reference to Christmas being marked on Dec. 25 comes from the second century after Jesus' birth. It is considered likely the first Christmas celebrations were in reaction to the Roman Saturnalia, a harvest festival that marked the winter solstice"the return of the sun"and honored Saturn, the god of sowing. Saturnalia was a rowdy time, much opposed by the more austere leaders among the still-minority Christian sect. Christmas developed, one scholar says, as a means of replacing worship of the sun with worship of the Son. By 529 A.D., after Christianity had become the official state religion of the Roman Empire, Emperor Justinian made Christmas a civic holiday. The celebration of Christmas reached its peak"some would say its worst moments"in the medieval period when it became a time for conspicuous consumption and unequaled revelry."

Because it's supposed to be a holiday where we relax and have fun. And we also hope it will be "merry" and a flame war doesn't fit the bill.

But what if a person finds it fun to emotionally ruin someone with personal attacks?

True.

Question:

Why should Christmas be a time to have fun and relax?
