More Xmas blues...

What annoys me the most about the season? Let me count the ways... ( in no particular order)


1. blaring Xmas music (usually bad versions of it) from before T-day on... in every single store...

2. radio stations that play nothing but Xmas music from T-day on ~ thank hevvins for iPods!!
I make it a point to call these guys and tell them that not only will I not listen to them, but that I would avoid like the plague any place that advertises with them...

3. the incessant bell ringing in front of stores by the SA group...

4. the assumption that everyone in America is a christian and celebrates Xmas...

5. hypocritical pseudo-christians who get all holy and righteous this time of year... yet are assholes the rest of the year...

6. People who decry the commercialization of Xmas, but then go out and buy tons of gifts for everyone they know, to show how much "Christmas spirit" they have...

7. People who lie to their children about the existence of a Santa Claus... what else do you lie to your children about??

8. people who try (with extra fervor) try to shove their particular brand of christianity down others throats this time of year...

Now, having said all that, I've just pinned my "How DARE you presume I'm a christian?" button to my purse...

Bobbie, Bobbie, Bobbie!!! This too will pass.. LOL, sorry had to say it. Come up with a new meaning and it'll make it easier to deal with. Like, "See we can be nice at least once a year". LOL, chill.

LOL about Santa Bobbie. Before having my own, I swore I'd never "lie" to my kids about Santa. But...all three believe in Santa. It's just fun. I'll be honest...I tell little white lies often... "Oh sure honey! You dressed yourself WONDERFULLY today! Good job!!" when 2.5 year old Connor insisted on wearing plaid shorts, and striped shirt, knee high socks and sandals to Easter at my IL's. *snerk* He was so stinkin cute.


Cottleston Pie is the Taoist philosophy dealing with our Inner Nature (as explained by Winnie-the-Pooh)
To get the full scoop, read "The Tao of Pooh" by Benjamin Hoff.
