I choose not to celebrate religious holidays because I don't believe in organized religion, B-days I tend to not celebrate either because they have even less meaning than religious holidays. I mean come on, its only how many times the earth has spinned around the sun since you were born. Your age is more important to your society than you personally because many rules and laws are applied to you based on your age.

I think it's kinda sad how people reserve celebration for certain days of the year. Every day of being alive should be a reason for at least a small celebration. Think how much happier humanity would be if they took life a little less seriously and got together and partied more often. Spontaneous fireworks and gifts and alcoholic imbibement, any day of the year.  :smile:

Spontaneous fireworks! Now that sounds like fun! *considers own username*..... Only, however, if you light the fireworks by yourself. It is almost enpowering, the experience of lighting them off. Very spiritual.
Peace.

I don't like celebrating birthdays and holidays either. It feels like empty ritual too often. It's okay if it's just an excuse to have a party, but then it's different from a "true" celebration of something.

Children's birthdays are an exception. I think birthday celebrations help children become conscious of Time and of where they are in the general scheme of things, whether they want to or not.

#Edit: added phrase "whether they want to or not"

I completely agree.

I HATE celebrating holidays...so I don't, basicly. Society's attempt to "celebrate" holidays has turned into one big mockery of the original intent of each and every holiday. Christmas is a prime example. Makes me sick to my stomach.

Lighten up people ! It's about having some fun with people you like. On birthdays you put up some colorful balloons. They ought to elicit some kind of positive childhood associations or a sense of the festive. On Christmas, one has all kinds of options. I like my Sears 9 foot artificial tree. I have collected Grateful Dead, Tibetan Buddhist, Greek Icon ornaments; been given ornaments - each with a memory of a friend, still have home-made cardboard mystical ornaments from my impoverished divorce years. Last year I had my first real indoor, non-barbeque party with good win, decent beers (the smokers were outside by the pool), the fireplace was crakling, incense and candles burning, music playing. It was fun - remember fun - that enjoyable set of activities before your minds starting cranking out negative, useless, neurotic bulls**t ?

It's not like you can deny what Lunatik said isn't true, religious days have turned into prime time for profit making: Christams, Easter, Valentine's Day, birthdays, what do they all have in common? You buy people stuff.

I'm not denying the truth about Hallmark Holidays as marketing gimmicks. But I don't mind taking advantage of opportunities to have a party - to invite people over for food and drink and music and laughter. It's not about buying stuff over here. We don't have any kids, and I like to buy things for the Lady whenever I see something she likes, not just Christmas or Birthdays. I don't expect to get things anymore since I can buy pretty much whatever I want, and I don't want really expensive things. I mean, I could be happy with reproduction art, for example, not miserable 'cause I can't afford an original Bosch or DaVinci.

I was just ranking enter because he avoids my parties when he should avoid his neurotic thinking instead :smile:
