I'm Jewish and I buy a Christmas tree. It's not like you're force to buy the fucking thing, even if you're Islamic. You should burn down that place.

Signs of the times, my friend. It is sad to see so many traditions go by the wayside. I help kill a tree every Christmas and that's SO politically incorrect. :rolls eyes:

In some sense the Christians have brought this on themselves for being such complete jerks that no one wants anything to do with their "religion".

What the world fails to realize is no matter if they change a holiday's name, go from BC to BCE, or any number of things, the Christian religion will be with us for a long long time.

One thing I know for sure. God is love if it exists at all.

Happy Christmas to Moe and Mrs. Moe!

I don't give a fuck what they call that tree, as long as I get an Xbox, my Creed CDs, and a Terry's Chocolate Orange.

Im not going to cut down no tree,... just so I can put it in my living room! I'll go hang some shit on the tree outside my window, or just go buy a plastic one. hehe

It makes me sad to see all the poor cut down trees all tied up like they are ready to go to a slaughter house. :frown:

I just wanted to let you know that where i live, NC, there are entire towns where at least one person in the family has gotten cancer from the christmas tree industry. Not to mention the amount of pesticides and fertilizers that run into streams and rivers. i'd bet most of those trees sold in lots came from this area.
BTW, this is not an american tradition, it's german. and i'm pretty sure it's not as commercialized over there. If you ask any 8 year old what the holiday means to them, one of first things they say is presents. i don't believe any god would support killing living trees and buying a bunch of plastic shit, but that's just MHO,

Christmas trees were a pagan symbol appropriated by Christians.  They are not an original Christian tradition.  And as far as December 25 being the "birthdate of Christ", that is not the case either. :grin:

If I'm not mistaken the date and the lighting of trees coincides with the winter solstice (of December 22?). This Pagan tradition far predates Christ. I kinda like it though I havn't participated in years. And Christ was born some other day -though I don't know which exactly -I don't think anyone really knows.

Yeah, the date for the Christmas holiday came from the pagan Sol Invictus(sp?) holiday.  A week of sun worship and heavy partying.

The western cultural tradition of Christmas came from Siberia, courtesy of the Aminata Muscaria mushroom! :ooo:

Shit I'm buying a tree so I can trip and look at the lights in the comfort of my own home. Rape nature, I say, it's our right!

You've got the Christmas spirit!
:grin:

The other day while driving down the highway I saw a pickup truck with two dead deer in the back.  The deers' paws were sticking up around the "Holiday tree" that the guy had tied down over the carcasses....
