JackieRabbit: saintstryfe: /grumpy old atheist me loves Christmas in nearly all its permuations and varied modes of celebration//if your kid can't get within sight of a pine tree lest it set of an allergic reaction that would kill him, then please, slaughter him before he breeds, as to prevent the weakening of the gene pool///you have a right to exist - you don't have a right to not have itchy eyes and a drippy nose.So celebrate one of the non-christian festivities. Yule, for example, which is where most of our Christmas traditions come from.Most kids today don't have allergies. They have underdeveloped immune systems and pussified helicopter parents, who are responsible for the former.
JackieRabbit: Let's see now. The town can use a fake tree every year or they can go cut down a huge old tree that they will send to the chipper in just a few weeks. All this angst over a holiday that almost no one over 10 years of age really likes.
dj_bigbird: sigdiamond2000: Said Melissa Vedder, 36, of Birmingham: "I think it's horrible, and it's honestly tacky. It's going to be outside. Why would you put a fake tree outside? It's just absolutely ridiculous. I hate buying a fake tree to put inside. The kids have allergies, I have to have a fake tree. But outside? A fake one? I can't even imagine!"Oh for the love of f*cking God...Kids are allergic to f*cking Christmas trees now?Lots of people have pine allergies. It's not uncommon.
