    Christmas became so much more fun once I gave up all that midnight mass stuff.

    While my parents and sister are off praying for renewed family ties through the magic of kneeling down and not talking to eachother, I'm with my two brothers actually renewing family ties through the magic of the pint-volume white russian, large cuban cigars and that classic film that teaches us the TRUE meaning of the season, Die Hard.

    NEWSFLASH: Atheists team up with Commies to steal Christmas!

    Don't you know atheists ARE the commies?

    Good Christians are capitalists, duh.

    I used to hate mass at christmas. My "catholic" parents used to make me and my brother go to mass even though they hadn't gone in about 20 years. They gave up making us go on sunday, but persisted with christmas for a few more years :(
    Can't think of a worse thing to make a kid do. Give them a load of new toys and tell them they can't play with them till they're back from an hour of mass.

    In fact, if hell does exist, it's a never ending session of mass on christmas day on one of those poxy uncomfortable wooden church benches.

    just quote jeremiah 10 at them
    Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen.... For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.



    Yes, it's out of context. No, I don't care, because it's funny :D

    Along with Die Hard and, the last few years, Bad Santa, I watch that film every year.

    Ah, Bad Santa. I love that film just for adding the phrase "you won't be able to sh*t straight for a week" to my repertoire.

    Remind me now please, which festivals was Xmas robbed from?

    Something to do with the Winter Solstice, some old Pagan Festival. No evidence at all that Jesus was born around December 25th. (not much evidence that he was born any other time either but we'll leave that for now).

    But if I met Jesus now I would thank him for all those delicious Christmas dinners and the hot port and brandy and the few days off work. Cheers Jesus.

    Bad Santa is an EPIC movie!

    Sarky - your festivities sound quite spectacular. Good job kind sir. This will be my first year out of the country so I will be celebrating Christmas with my girlfriend and her family. It will probably be my second ever white Christmas too. Sweet! Likewise, while they are out visting their local church I will be getting stuck in to a bottle of Midleton and some turkey & ham sammichs with YR sauce, and a bit of salt and mustard too.

    If anyone complains about you celebrating family time (that's essentially what this is, a family holiday) - say to them that Christians stole Christmas from the Pagans thanks to Constantine. It was a Pagan holiday before they came along. That usually shuts people up. Christ was born in March/April timeframe.

    Only pegged Die Hard 2 as the greatest Christmas movie ever on my Facebook a couple of weeks ago. :D

    I hated Bad Santa.

    Die hard 2? Ahead of Die Hard 1?

    Madness. Bad Santa I can understand, but Die Hard 2 better than 1?

    Die Hard 1 symbolises Christmas perfectly. Meet up with family (wife). See some people you don't want to see (terrorists). Play a few games (big shoot-outs). Bit of an argument over what to watch on telly (blow up the roof of a building). Have a laugh (Ho Ho Ho now I have a machine gun). Eat and drink too much (Ellis taking too much coke). And just sit around and do nothing (most of the hostages and Argyle in the limo)

    Was Jesus born on 25th December? Then why is the new year a few days later? Ever think that Jesus may have been born on the 1st of January, and that the 25th is just a pagan festival that the christains took over?

    Usually shuts them up :P

    =-=

    I celebrate birthdays, easters, chrimbo, St Patricks International Irish Drinking Day, and one or two other yearly festivals.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,836 ✭✭✭ ShooterSF


    Remember as well that pastafarians celebrate "Holiday" around that time of year too and anyone who wishes you "Happy Holidays" is in fact (probably) referring to said celebrations. And as Holiday is celebrated by many more than christmas, including the White House and more recently Thomas the Tank Engine I could suggest that atheists (and commies) are actually stealing Holiday instead. Bastards.

    Not enough snow (or Christmas sweaters) in Die Hard 1 to be truly a Christmas movie!

    Sorry - I don't make the rules! ;)

    Some great Festivus movies being suggested here. But the thread is missing:

    I know Christians play the victim card often and it can be difficult to tell especially with the subtle genius of Mr. P's original post but it was actually a parody! I know I know, when realised it my face was like :eek: too.

    Parody? Isn't that, like, one of the sacraments or something?
