Nevermind that the precursor to Santa Claus was a mean shadowy old man who would steal things from those who were bad and give them to more deserving children. Santa Claus was a tool to keep their kids in line. "Be good or else" was the virtue of the day.

Christ Not born on December 25

The second reason I not to celebrate Christmas is that Christ was not born on December 25th. Notice:

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night." Luke 2:8

Don't miss the point: the shepherds WERE IN THE FIELDS taking care of their flocks on the night Jesus Christ was born. As the shepherds were watching their sheep, the message came to them of the birth of Jesus Christ.

It's a well known fact that December falls in the middle of the rainy season in Palestine, and the sheep were kept in the fold at that time of the year. The shepherds always corralled their flocks from October to April. They brought their sheep from the mountainsides and the fields no later than October 15th to protect them from the cold, rainy seasons that followed that date. So the birth of Christ could not have taken place at the end of December.

these spambots are getting good.

One more sleep until Christmas Eve!! :icon_santa:

In an hour I'm meeting my sister to get the last present and to get myself a nice christmas outfit (as I do this every year)...
And then we're going shopping for food for tomorrow's dinner  :D which I will be partly making today!

This Xmas, when you are finding your treats from Santa, think of the elves. Their hard work and sacrifice makes it all happen.

Ladies and gentlemen. The duck is in the oven. Still terrified. Unsure wether there is enough stuffing inside it.

My mom invited an almost total stranger to our Monday night Christmas dinner.
Well I hope he likes kale.

It finally kind of feels like Christmas. I got 200 dollars in the mail (YAHOOoooo) and a DVD (Primer, never seen it, sounds awesome) and a 35mm guide book, each from a friend I didn't expect anything from.
And my friend Nicole (who I gave the Hedwig ornament and our Volvo's hubcap...don't ask) gave me a shirt that says Make Art not War (its pretty rad I suppose) and a "my name is GEEK" button. I sense a Hottopic gift theme coming since the bag James told me "NOT TO LOOK IN" says Hottopic in big scary letters.
Oh well.

Aaw, that's dead nice of her! Are you going?

I am now OFFICIALLY finished with my Christmas shopping :) Got my brother, my sister and my mum books, a CD for my step-mum, a joke book for my step-dad and a t-shirt for my little sister. I went into Manchester today thinking of getting her a Take That book, as recommended by my older sister. There is no such book, I swear. Bought myself The Knife Of Never Letting Go instead xD Hope she likes the t-shirt..... :-\

Of course I'll be going. I'll let you in on a little secret of mine. In spite of the brave front I put on, this time of year has always been exceptionally lonely for me. It's the primary reason why I work on Christmas whenever I can. Let those with families have the day to celebrate.
