Ah, December. A month full of a lights, Coca-Cola commercials, and bad scratch-and-sniff stickers. Of Charlie Brown Christmas Specials, and of fires in a fireplace.
It seems to me that holiday spirit is growing. I'm not saying that this is a bad thing. In fact, I think it's a good thing. It's a time when the country, not only it's Christians, but everyone, bonds together. Lights fill the streets, creating a sort of
"perpetual twighlight". Smoke spirals upward from chimneys, to create acid rain and holes in the O-Zone.
I feel such a part of something. I feel so, not Christian, not religious, but American. I feel as though the Christmas trees replace American flag. It's a symbol of our blatant disrespect of the first amendment.
If someone read this post previously, I apologize for deleting the rest of this post. It was a point which was pretty stupid. Believe it or not, I have actually changed my position on something.
Bill O' Reilly, and I can't believe I'm mentioning him in my blog, is trying to convince us that saying "Happy Holidays" is stupid. He argues (well he doesn't really argue, he just says and then makes some bad jokes, hoping that people mistake that for information) that saying many Americans don't celebrate any holidays. I guess New Years doesn't count as a holiday. Anyway, you can check out his position (if you could call it that) here.
So, I would like to wish you all a happy holiday, and a happy new year.
It's hard to be opinionated sometimes.
