I’m not religious at all, and I never have been. That’s not saying I look down at anybody who is. If religion works for you, kudos to you. I mean that with all sincerity.
That being said, I do have one issue with a major holiday. My issue is simply this: why does Christmas have to last 2 months?
Seriously. It’s November 9th and I’m already seeing Christmas decorations. Halloween was last week weekend and Thanksgiving is still weeks away.
Come on. Give Christmas a few weeks, that’s being generous.
Also stop calling it “Christmas time”. There are many many Americans who are like me and don’t celebrate Christmas.
That also doesn’t mean that I hate Christmas or Christians or anything like that. I like seeing people happy, and people are usually happy around Christmas.
One last thing, Pastor Joshua Feuerstein (sounds Jewish to me) said this about Starbucks because their newly released holiday cups don’t have Christmas designs on them:
“Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus … SO I PRANKED THEM … and they HATE IT!!!! #shareUse #MERRYCHRISTMASSTARBUCKS”
Even a nonreligious person knows that the holidays are about love and family, not frivolous stuff.
