Well it looks like we have all survived another year. Have a very Merry Mythmas and a Happy New Year folks!

Dang!
Another War on Christmas unsuccessful!

We'll get this miserable holiday, if it's the last thing we'll ever do!

Not where I live! You have to look far and wide for a stranger who, if you wish them a Merry Christmas, will wish you a Merry Christmas back. Trump has poisoned the well so much around here that anyone who even murmurs that phrase will be suspected to be an idiot alt-right racist Trump supporter. My atheist brethren and I...uh, and and my atheist sistren, of course...sisteren? sisterian? Anyway, my peeps and I have to hide away in secret enclaves where we whisper "Merry Christmas" to one another, always dreading we will be discovered by Teh Strangers and reported to, y'know, "THEM". And nobody wants to be reported to "THEM"!

Seems to work the same way around my heck of the woods. Face to face people will kinda stop themselves in their Moose Tracks. But on the phone, anyone will belch out a cheery xmas greeting - especially if they don't know you. Makes you feel like a pollster. :?


Have a very merry, everyone. :ahoy:

Oy vey. My mother -- my MOTHER -- irritated my nephew by replying, "Why are you taking the Christ out of Christmas?"

I swear, she's losing what little is left of her mind. The X was put in there by Christians! It means "Christ"! She's old, she should KNOW this! She was {!#%@} THERE at the time!

He's stroking its fur against the grain and looking it in the eyes like he's trying to say, "don't worry, I'll be gentle".

I got a Darth Vader coffee mug from my eldest daughter.

I didn't think I was that ruthless a patriarch, but it was the first time either of my kids have given me an xmas gift, so I'm happy.

And as she said, "At least it's not Kylo Ren".

I'm kind of a combination between Darth Vader the Sith Lord, and Paul Atreides the Kwisatz Haderach.

When they misbehave I use the force power of my voice to command them...

Get up. Have a shower. Get dressed. Brush your hair. Brush your teeth. Eat your dinner. Go to bed!

Because I can see the future where I have to pay dental bills and they're still sponging off me, eating all my food.

Merry 2nd Christmas!

Today is Christmas day according to the older Julian calendar. In some cultures, that makes today Christmas Day!

I like celebrating Christmas, so I do it twice per season.

Yay! :ahoy: :senile: :candy: :doggy: :bw: :king:

Mine was being told I might live more than just another 2 years or so... as in false call, we only thought you had that nasty one and sliced you up for the fun of it. But for real, our new year comes April first, with the ascension of a new living god... erm, grandson of the guy who supported our military some 70 years ago.
