" ::)" meant that I was being sarcastic.

[not serrious] Now I'm gonna  complain that we celebrate the eve of All Saints Day, but not the actual day, and how all the costumes of prostitutes and sexually confused boys are allowed to be paraded in front of me.  Oh and I'm gonna complain to myself for my signature and how it offends myself.

Well as my avatar icon pic thingy shows I am a fan of Foamy. Last years Christmas themed cartoon was reposted last week. It's still up on the home page at www.illwillpress.com. Foamy's opinions pretty much reflect my own and most of the forums here but still check it out its worth a good chuckle. Beware of Foamy's foul mouth though but I'm sure most people here don't mind the odd profanity being thrown around.

I hate ignorance.  I'm Bahai, and we don't really have a winter holiday... People are like, "OMG you dont celebrate anything in december!??!".

Actually, I still celebrate Christmas, and my Hindu friend does as well... so... Screw you all.

Well, that was a little bit random and impolite... But, I guess, I don't know...

Yes.  I have no tolerance for the ignorant.  That's why I am rude to them.

About the randomness... Often I post replys to things when I am thinking of a totally different topic, such as ignorance.  To make it more on topic... sorta... I made it about holidays.


Sorry bout that.

Yes, because 762 is the model of on-topic politeness.  ;)

Screw you all.

But nobody was being ignorant. Nobody said "OMG YOU DON'T HAVE A DECEMBER HOLIDAY OMG!" on these forums, so I don't know why that was necessary or pertinent.

the fact is that people will celebrate whatever local customs exist as well as their own. If I moved to China i'd celebrate chinese new year as well as western new year
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

And why is it 'Merry' or 'Happy'? Why are wishing our will towards any group or individual? How insensitive is that? Maybe someone doesn't want to have a 'Happy' or 'Merry' encounter. What right do you have to impose that kind of personal pressure on them? Perhaps you willing them to be happy is in fact making their situation worse.

Want an example? If a cute blonde smiles at me in the wrong way/right way and wishes me a 'Nice Day',"Merry Christmas','Happy Holiday' my world gets darker, not for her direct action, but the the end result of the jealous wife wondering what is going on and trying to read in to the inflection and body language of the blonde. This woman's commentary just ruined the next two hours of my day... how dare she. She should have stopped, asked me to remove my glove, check for a wedding ring, verified that the wife was around or not, verified with the wife (if present) that it was OK to speak to me, then chosen something that was not as emotionally improper to say and perhaps dress in something less provocative as well. I mean really, that is the last time I go shopping with the wife at a strip club. Geez...

my train of thought derailed and I'm too lazy to hit delete.

OK i just had to comment on one thing. someone said something about joining all the religious symbols together. This, i think would offend anyone from any of the religions. Each religion believes it is the true religion, and to have their symbol joined with one of the other false religions would be an insult. just my thought on that.
