Nerd Church - The Gift of Christmas
Christmas is awesome. Christmas is love and hope.
I'm not gonna get all made-for-TV-movie on your butts, but whether you celebrate Christmas or not, there's something exceptionally beautiful about a time of the year dedicated to love, hope, kindness, and joy.
Anyone can join in with Christmas - or not - as they please.
People who criticise Muslims (in particular) for taking part in Christmas celebrations need, in my humble opinion, to go write 'I must not be a douche' as many times as it takes to get through to them :)
Because if people of non-Christian faiths, or no faith at all, want to take part in Christmas, THEN THAT'S ENTIRELY UP TO THEM.
You don't get to pick what other people celebrate. #TrueStory
Christmas is about love and understanding. Excluding people from that means that you aren't really being very Christian.
Although, there seem to be quite a few people who hide behind religion in order to be a jerk in this world. *sighs*
At the same time, if people DON'T want to celebrate Christmas - THAT'S UP TO THEM TOO.
I adore Christmas. But I don't have a problem with people not celebrating it. It's not my issue.
I do think that people who avoid Christmas because they 'don't see what the fuss is about' or think it's 'too commercial' are wrong, but that's a whole other rant - and again, I don't have to like it, that's their deal, not mine.
Whatever your plans are tomorrow, I hope you enjoy yourself, and have a good time.
Nadolig LLawen i Bob Un/Merry Christmas to Everyone!
