The fresh flowers were pretty but nowhere near necessary, we didn't need limos for a twenty minute ride, it was ridiculous to rent a church for one hour for 2000 dollars. That's right people. Two months of mortgage payments equals one hour in a church, lol. TV and wedding guides tell you that you must spend money beaucoup on a wedding and people listen. The same with engagement rings. Guys are now expected to save up months of paychecks on a ring that has a clear shiny jewel that isn't even that rare in it? For what purpose? I knew my wife was the one when we went shopping for engagement rings and the one she fell in love with cost 5000 and I told her I couldn't afford it and we continued shopping. She honestly didn't care what I spent on a ring and she could care less how much it cost, she just wanted something from me that looked good on her finger. Of course I got her the 5000 ring cause she loved it and I could afford it but it's great being married to someone that isn't obsessed with having expensive stuff for the sake of it being expensive.
    Wow.. you are so sweet for buying that ring for her.

    I welcome this news. Religion is slowly walking out the door.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    It sounds like Christmas is still too Pagan and not enough Christ-like... Maybe we should rework Santa's image as being a friend of Jesus or turn Santa into the three wise men, and the reindeer can be replaced with angels. Or the reindeer can be taken out, and the holy spirit can drive the sleigh.

    Replace all the Elves with Will Ferrell...

    .. and say bad kids are sent to the North Pole to make presents for all the good kids. Will Ferrell was a bad little kid, so the three wise me kidnapped him and forced him to work.

    Commericialism began before I was born, so it's nothing new. Atheist fighting over naitivity scenes, now that's new.
