Happy Day After although still a holiday Christmas

My Christmas was wonderful. I went to church, cooked a full spread and just fellowshipped with the family. We opened a few gifts and just shared the day together thankful to God that we have each other for another year.

This year I have thought a lot about my mother. She died in the spring of 2000 and I have been in a Christmas blue mood for a long time because our last Christmas together was spoiled by the ridiculous behavior of her sister.

My mother was a lover of the essence of Christmas, the decorations the special "spirit" of the holiday. Yesterday for the first time since she died I felt that essence. We did not buy a lot of junk gifts, I shopped only one day. We just sat around and rejoiced that we had made it through another season together.

I am glad that I joined the blog world this year. Most of the blogs are like this one self-indulgent but that's okay. It's okay because we all need to express what is inside. Sometimes bloggers get upset when others criticize but I think it's cool. It does not change who you are and in many ways it gives you the opportunity to see how others view you for free!

Merry day after the day holiday to all of you and Happy Kwanzaa to you.

Jesus is NOT Santa Claus

I am officially becoming Ebenezer Scrooge. I am so sick of the commercialism of Christmas. Aaron McGruder may be on his way straight to hell for this but he has a point. What the heck is going on?

He betta get me this?

If I don't spend at least $1,000 on my baby she aint gonna have a good Christms.

What in the name of Santa Jesus Claus is a good Christmas.

Okay news flash Christians

The Christmas Tree is not a religious symbol. I don't care how many monkey ass preachers try to dress it up as a religious symbol it aint.

It ain't got nothing to do with Jesus. The tree is not a symbol of the cross upon which he hung. The Star is not symbolic of his description as a bright and morning star and no the lights are symbolic that Jesus is the light of the world. Oh and hell no, the ornaments are not the blessings upon which we are adorned. I know the crap sounds good but it's total bull****.

It is an ancient custom from many cultures and it is not in the Holy Bible which I just heard a stupid jack leg ass preacher say. Now if that triangular shape representing the trinity works for you so be it, but quit spreading myths and legends.

The giving of gifts is not symbolic of Christ's love for us. According to Christian belief and doctrine we believe that Christ DIED for the sins of the world before the world fell into love with Him.

Now you money grubbing gift clutching folks know that y'all ain't buyin crap for nobody that one does not love you or ain't buying you no gift.

I could go on and on. But I feel a shout coming on. Hold on. No that was just a leg cramp.

And why are y'all Christians so upset if somebody don't say Merry Christmas, did I fall asleep and all the ills of the world have been cleared up and semantics is all we got to fight about now?

Okay okay. I will be nice. Y'all know i love y'all. Here's my Christmas wish list for all those in blog land Peace Happiness, Faith and joy now and always.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy day if it means nothing to you spiritually.

Whatever Happened to Christmas

Alright I give up. Christmas is no longer a religious holiday at all.

This does not have anything to do with whether you say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays. This is about what happened to the joy of the day.

Everything is now about what you got or did not get. If kids don't get Ipods, cell phones, laptops and expensive game consoles, they aren't having a good Christmas.

Whatever happened to fruit and nuts, and a doll or something, why have we become so extravagant.

I am serious. Why have we forsaken the birth of Christ, the most un-selfish of all icons and turned the day of his "alleged" birth into the most selfish of all days.

Oh yes we are selfish at Christmas, we buy presents because people buy us presents. Let somebody cross you and not buy you a present. They got hell to pay.

Will somebody please explain why its a sad Christmas if we don't get presents yet have the love of another on any day? Y'all betta help me. Cause I am about to lose my mind.
