Since some people are already ignoring the actual history of why humans celebrate during this time of year, I vote for inventing some new ideas. Better, funnier, and more lively ideas.
Star Wars… keeping it real
God of agriculture
And my own contribution…
Let’s face it, the amount of gifts being bought, the money that goes into marketing to push buying said gifts, and the down-right-ROTTEN-attitudes of the people we come into contact with during the buying of these gifts only reinforces the greed and the unnecessary want for more. This is what we have come to celebrate during the month of December (and November… and half of October).
Congratulations religion, you’ve taken a deadly sin and cashed in on it. Your god would be proud.
The Reason Of The Season is a new series that will take place from December 1 – December 25. I, like many non-theists and non-Christians, love the holiday season. I love taking the this chilly time of year to remind the people I love how much I love and adore them, to help and give to those less fortunate, and feel the innocent hope of when I was a child. This series is an effort to educate many on tradition and history as well as an opportunity to share why I love this time of year and the traditions we use and have created in our family.
