17. Bor will have a field day with this one...
I love how we keep Christ in Christmas. Such a damned joke. I think many of us go to church on Christmas just to rid our conscience of guilt for our waste and greed. Christmas has become just that in this country.

I've been going to Mexico for Christmas for the past five years...and I absolutely LOVE the difference. There you maybe get a gift for your mother-in-law...as in a simple item...and the tree is absent of all the boxes of Chinese made crap and nonburnable wrapping paper and ribbon. We actually live in central Mexico, and all the hype about cartels and kidnappings is about as rare as being shot at in a local shopping mall is here in the US.

Christmas is my least favorite time of the year, and has been for the last fifty years of my life. Just a commercialized crazy-house. Talk about superficial?
