I hope I really hope I never put up a christmas tree in my life. I just dont feel like it and have never felt like it and hope that continues.
I dont have any other statement to add to that. Not like we already have too many festivals without going in for one more and blah... blah..
I am waiting for the malls to be released tommorow after having been seized all the way from the nearby highway exits for more than a month.
I also wish these people have more than just two festivals. May be they should make two arbitary ones - festivus 1 and festivus 2. It is a human rights situation that needs to be rectified, surely a society of 300 million people in one of the most prosperous countries deserve that.
I also also hope that there is a little more reference to the man
whose birthday is (apparently that isnt completely right) because of whom people celebrate the day. After all as the grass carvings atop a mountain on 680 reads "Jesus is the reason for the season". If I hadnt watched enough of Doordarshan shows, I might think people are just celebrating santa claus.May be they really are doing just that.
The last point troubled me a lot, in the midst of all the marathon santa claus movies, I missed the Jesus biography movie - I mean isnt that part of christmas.
Wonder why non-christians who celebrate christmas dont really care about eid/some such Islamic festival.
May be al qaeda would be happy then. That just would balance out things.
