Warning, really big rant here.
I've actually made it to 23 December without blowing up with my annual Christmas rant. This is a first. It usually hits me a bit earlier in the season, but I think this year perhaps because I've been so cloistered at home, it's not quite as apparent to me.
But Jesus peeps, isn't there ANYTHING else to blog about right now but Christmas? There must be something going on in your collective lives beyond this damn holiday. I just read a blog that blasted Happy Holidays and told me that the "Reason for the Season" was the birth of "our" lord, JC. Well, guess what peeps. JC is NOT the reason for the season for well over half of the world's population, nor is he OUR lord. He's YOUR lord. Not just the Jews, folks. You've heard of some of the other of the world's major religions. Like Islam. Heck, do you think THEY care if you have a reason for your season? They don't. Their reason is Ramadan and the Eids, and they already celebrated them this year. How about them Hindus? Are they going around screaming about their holidays? I think not. But there sure are a lot of Hindus in the world.
I'm aware that the Jewish world population is small. Heck, if you delightful Christians hadn't KILLED half of our population a few decades back in the name of Christian superiority, maybe we might have reached a full percentage point in the world religion roundup. Yeah, it's not YOUR fault, is it? But can't you just keep your damn holiday to yourself. One or two posts, sure I can swallow that. But when I am OBVIOUSLY not Christian, and it not only says that in my bio (look at the sidebar, kiddos), but it says it repeatedly in the posts, why do you think it's OK to wish me (repeatedly) a Merry Christmas? Is it because you're all so distant from anyone who is not Christian that you just make assumptions that this greeting isn't offensive to some? Or is it because you just don't give a flying fuck whether or not you're offending people, you're trying to make a point that Christmas is the reason for the season. People, WINTER is the reason for the season.
I'm tired of the stinky Christmas crap on TV. I'm tired of the constant Macy's ads, as well as all the other dreck I see in the newspapers, on TV, and everywhere I travel. I hate this frigging holiday because it's shoved down my throat whether or not I want to celebrate it. I don't want to celebrate it. Really. I have NO INTEREST whatsoever in Christmas. Just like YOU have no interest in my holidays. Because if you did, you would know that MY reason for the season was a couple of months back, in the early fall. Those are MY holy days, and I bet most of you don't know a damn thing about them, or if you do, you only know something about one or two, but not all of them. How come I have to know about ALL of the fricking Christian holidays but you can't know even the slightest thing about mine? Anyone see any problems here?
I'm very happy for all of you that celebrate Christmas, but I DON'T, so quit trying to make me feel like a piece of shit for not believing in your religion. I don't care that you're supposed to proseletyze, go find someone else to bother, and someplace else to do it. This is a JEWISH blog, and I'm so over Christmas.
Now, back to your regularly scheduled brag sessions about your trees. Yawn. Stumble It! JBlog Me
