Christmas is pointless!
Posted 12/22/06
This has been bugging me for awhile now.

Everybody has been telling me that it's a day of giving and sharing what you have with others even if it's just a little. To see some one special to you smile maybe just to see anyone smile.

Shouldn't that be an everyday thing ?

I personally think the greatest present of them all is to see everbody be greatful, to see them all be thankful for what they have everyday and not just once every year.

To show love to those close to you even if they are annoying, like a little sister for example because all of that including christmas can be taken away from you anyday.

So, your thoughts on christmas, whats the best present of all to you etc.

What are they ?

yea i agree with you
alot of people just dont know how good they've got it until they've lost it

as for christmas i'm convinced that alot of people in my school dont really even believe in it, they just see it as a way to get pretty much whatever they want
that might not be the case though

im not used to seein someone greatful for something because i nvr have anything to offer but my sisters and brothers are all very thankful that im around to take care of them whenever mom and dad arent

Christmas is a nice way to spend time with your family, and people are the nicest at this time. We all always have to be respectful to eac hother everyday, yet don't say that Christmas is pointless. I am not christain, yet I bet that would insult some christains(sorry if I misspelled it.) There is more meaning to Christmas than giving gifts, some people forgot that. I learned from my dad (who watched anime since it was made, knows every anime ever made. Also funny yet serious person that has alot of wisdom,maybe too much) that giving presents on Christmas is showing that you are exchanging gifts with God as well because we are gods creation or something like that, I forgot.^ ^ I love Christmas because I will not lie, I do like recieving gifts, yet I get excited and work myself to death to buy great gifts for them. I love spending time with my family which we don't always get because my parents work alot and I have alot of work from school.

It's just a username and if you take it offensively, get off the net.

I never said anything about not liking christians.

I think Christmas should be the celebration of gratefulness and sharing. Yeah we should do it everyday, but Christmas should remind us why we do it everyday.

I do think it's odd though that Christmas has become a holiday for everyone, not just Christians. I mean you don't see non-Christians celebrating Hannakuh. It doesn't offend me, I just find it interesting ^^.

The greatest gift (for me personally) would be to have my family together and have all them actually WANT to be there, but it won't happen.

Saying that Christmas is pointless is insulting to christains, that's why some people are pissed. Why do you think that Chistmas is so pointless when alot people are happy at this time? I don't take it offensively, I am curious on why you think it's pointless, it's your opinion. I have no right to say that your opinion is wrong, because it's not. You asked for what we think, so I did. That's all. ^

I say this because even if I was a christian, I'd thankful everyday that my lord was born. I would be proud to give the gift of kindness to anyone in his name instead of an Ipod.
