– It gives you an excuse to hang out with your family and friends
– You don’t have to work (hopefully). Even if you do, you’ll have few customers, and can surf Facebook while your boss is on holidays, hehehe
– You greet people you haven’t talked to in ages
– You get high on all the car exhaust at the shopping centre parking lots
– Women dress up in very sexy outfits, although I’m married and don’t notice this ; )
– All the shitty Christmas songs you hear repeatedly, a million times over, finally cease playing in your head and merge into one big cosmic “OM”
– Actually, if these stinky songs play in my head, I simply change the lyrics to something more rebellious and nasty ; )
– I can comfort myself with the thought: “If Christ appeared in the flesh today, He would boycott His own birthday celebration. Why? Coz He’s been replaced by the Big Fat Red-Suit Guy. Besides, Western culture either portrays the Messiah as a corpse on a couple sticks of wood, or a little baby being coddled by His parents, in a stinky manger. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to be remembered as a corpse or a diapered-baby for eternity!”
– I can teach my kids to rebel against a ***ed up culture, especially as it hyperventilates at Christmas time. It’s a great teaching tool: perfect for an object lesson/
– It gives me time to write, and to research the music, writings, poetry & activism of John Trudell.
THE BEST ADVICE is from heavy metal band Kreator’s Mille Petrozza:
Spend time with the ones you love and boycott Christmas consumption.
If it’s too late, then do it next year. In the mean time, boycott the religion of Consumptionism. 2013 will love you for it.
PS – the world didn’t end on Dec 21, 2012, 3 cheers!!!!!!
