1. I would never turn down Christmas sex, especially if Jessica Biel or Elizabeth Banks were involved in there somewhere. I don't know if Christmas sex is technically a tradition, or especially a Chistmas tradition, but I'm all for creating new traditions. And if they involve sex and Jessica Biel I think it would be hard for this one to go wrong.
2. Do you always sleep late on Christmas morning? Yes, its a day off from work and I don't have any kids waiting to open the presents that Santa brought them. By the time Christmas arrives I am exhausted. Not to mention, for me Christmas often requires me to travel to my hometown, which is itself pretty tiring. So I sleep as late as I can. And then I give presents to my niece's kids and watch the wrapping paper fly.
3. Christmas is my favorite holiday. It directly precedes New Year's Day and I usually try to save up vacation days and take everything from Christmas Eve through New Year's Day off from work. Some years this is the only vacation I get. I haven't been to the beach in forever.
4. Realizing the communists are successfully destroying Christmas throughout the West makes me feel sorry for future generations who will live in a world of dictatorship and oppression if the communist anti-Christers aren't stopped. For those whose god is power and control, everything that doesn't somehow give them more power and control over the est of us must be destroyed or outlawed. Christianity is in direct competition with The State in the eyes of someone who worships the power of a totalitarian state as a utopian ideal. They lie and say "there is no war on Christmas" out of one side of their mouths while declaring war on "white European males, capitalism and the Christian Church" in all of their writings and speeches. Personally I'm tired of it. But I can't be the only person to stand against it and expect it to stop. Everyone has to stand united against it and stop tolerating it or else we will continue to lose our culture and our freedom. Once its been lost you won't get it back. Just ask the old people living in Russia. The Soviet Union lasted more than a single lifetime and even now they aren't free there. The only real difference there now is that they have phony elections instead of an open dictatorship. But everyone in Russia knows the election results or a fraud. What a horrible and hopeless feeling that must be.
As I write this I'm watching the Dallas Cowboys doing something I never expected - they are pounding the Colts 42-0. The network just showed a skybox where legendary Dallas quarterback Roger Staubach is slapping politician Chris Christie on the back and laughing while legendary Dallas runningback Emmitt Smith stands in front of them and applauds. The Colts have sent in their backup quarterback, Matt Hasselbeck, and Dallas has responded by sending in their backup quarterback, Brandon Weeden. Weeden just threw a bomb for a big touchdown, which is why they're celebrating in the skybox. I hadn't expected this match-up to be an easy win for Dallas, let alone a big blow-out. I was worried that the powerful Colts offense would put a massive hurt on Dallas and likely even beat them. I had held out hopes that the Colts, not needing to win this game to make the playoffs, wouldn't take it seriously and thus give Dallas a better chance of winning. But I hadn't expected Dallas to win in a big, big way. It was already 28-0 when I turned the game on. I was bracing myself for a Cowboy loss and elimination from playoff contention. I guess that's why I didn't turn the game on right away. I saw when it was starting, but I was watching a movie and wanted to finish it.
So anyway, what are your plans for Christmas? Are you traveling? Are you staying home and watching your kids unwrap presents? Are you currently celebrating Hanukkah and completely surprised that I know how to spell Hanukkah? What's up with you this Christmas?
