    Black Friday disproves that. Christmas is about unbridled consumerism and greed.

    No one hates Christmas, its just that most people don't feel as though their rights have been violated when they get a card in the mail that says Season's Greetings rather than Merry Christmas. If there ever was an example of how the social conservatives can be total babies its the supposed "War on Christmas".

    Oh bull****. I am not into the whole praying to the zombie thing, but I enjoy the holidays as much or more than you do.

    Complaining about things like people saying Happy Festivus or whatever is about as PC as you can get. Why is it that those who whine about political correctness are the ones who practice it the most?

    I find it funny that all this "keep the Christ in Christmas" folk complain about things being said while engaging in the mass consumerism and unbridled greed of modern christmas. Keep the Christ in Christmas, don't give in to greed. It's a deadly sin afterall.
