I know that whenever American Christians bitch about their imagined war on Christmas, they’re really either trying to push their beliefs onto others, or they’re trying force theocratic violations of the 1st amendment. I have no problem with cultural holidays. Thanksgiving is one of my favorites. Obviously I’m not giving thanks to any imaginary being who magically orchestrates our reality behind-the-scenes. Rather I like to remind my kids to appreciate what they’ve got while they’ve got it, and to think about how things would be if we lived …over there, or what if we lived …back then. How would our lives be different? You certainly wouldn’t have it as good as you do right now, eh kids? I doubt they really get it, but it’s worth the effort.
If I lived in India, I would likely celebrate Diwali. When I was a kid, we used to celebrate May Day. That was a Russian holiday, and it was during the cold war! We weren’t about promoting other ideologies; it was just about a cultural exchange. I have also attended a few pagan ceremonies and found them quite charming too. Observing some ritual traditions can be fun, and I have fun with it.
I also have a slightly different interpretation of Santa Claus, and I would like to share that at this time.
The music is the Overture from Pigdom Come by Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel.
