I Hate X'Mas

Don't get me wrong. The season of giving, joy and goodwill is way up on my list of favourite days of the year. It is, in fact, SPECIAL to me. It is the ONE day in the year, Edmund, the chronic alcohol and loud music addict staunchly refuses to club.

No, I don't hate Christmas. I hate X'mas.

I actually get peeved when people use Xmas instead of Christmas. Call me a traditionalist, but I believe that there are some things that should not be sacrificed to the god of expediency and modern efficiency.

Nope, some things are inviolate in my book. Christmas will remain Christmas and the only mixers good whiskey should have, is a dash of warm water or a couple of cubes of ice.

Thus endeth the sermon.

PS. Oh, and Merry Christmas everyone.

PPS. Take time off and remember your loved ones, do something meaningful. Even if it is just before drinking yourself silly.

PPS. The free hugs campaign is GO. City Hall if wet weather, Orchard if not. If you are not sure where I am, CALL ME.

Dude, I cant agree more. Over the years, pple use X to X out 'Christ', the real reason why there's christmas in the 1st place is because of Jesus Christ. They day that He was born.

I can nvr figure out the incidental things like santa, jingle bells, christmas trees but I like them anyway.

The true meaning of christmas is Christ love. Let's not axe it out with a X.

A very merry n blessed christmas to you!


PS : If I have yr address, I might send u a bottle of wine or a quiche for wat u wrote. It's Christmas, isnt it?
