Yeah yeah yeah Christmas is what you make of it, we get it.
 
2012-12-12 04:40:40 PM
I always wondered about that particular Xmas carol...
 
2012-12-12 04:41:46 PM
Meat is murder; tasty, tasty murder.
 
2012-12-12 04:41:55 PM
I don't care; I still hate Christmas.

That article barely seemed to make a point.

Sounds like fun. But I would never dress up in my sisters clothes she dresses like a common street walker. Now mom has some class and taste in her wardrobe.

In order to fully enjoy my family Christmas, I keep a crock pot full of mulled cider hot at all times. Next to the crock pot is a large bottle of rum.

It helps.

Stick that in your ipad and smoke it.

Hey kid--you kill once and it gets easier every time. Eat your rolls and shut up.

For a long time in my family it wasn't Christmas until somebody got drunk and made somebody else cry.

Two words: Figgy pudding


/ I say again: Figgy pudding
 
2012-12-12 04:49:37 PM
figgy pudding? Why does everything British sound like it was named by a 4 year-old. Makes me want to smack them in their stupid gob.

Yeah, pretty much this.

The writer sees to be one unhappy fellow or at least a guy with more that one or two bad Christmases in his past.

Christmas IS what you make it,soooo....fark him.

Worse subby? You need to come out on a tear with me some friday night. Everything in that article sounds like FUN to me compared to hanging with my fambly.

I think Robert Earl Keen covered this already...

Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk at our Christmas party
We were drinking champagne punch and homemade eggnog
Little sister brought her new boyfriend
He was a Mexican
We didn't know what to think of him until he sang
Feliz Navidad, Feliz Navidad

Brother Ken brought his kids with him
The three from his first wife Lynn
And the two identical twins from his second wife Mary Nell
Of course he brought his new wife Kay
Who talks all about AA
Chain smoking while the stereo plays Noel, Noel
The First Noel

Carve the Turkey
Turn the ball game on
It's margaritas when the eggnog's gone
Send somebody to the Quickpak Store
We need some ice and an extension chord
A can of bean dip and some Diet Rites
A box of Pampers, Marlboro Lights
Halelluja everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the family

Actually, the old ways sound far more appealing to me than the current obligatory buying of crap for people who don't appreciate it and already have too much crap, going to a church you regularly avoid every other time of year, listening to dentist-office arrangements of bad songs about a fictional baby with superpowers, and fighting one's way through ghastly traffic to get to any store.

Seriously - I'd serve up a damn fine spread (including figgy pudding, if required) and open the bar for the young men of the neighborhood if only they promise never, ever to sing another Christmas carol in my presence.
 
2012-12-12 05:13:04 PM
"...it wasn't unusual for groups of young men to celebrate Christmas by getting drunk, putting on their sisters' clothes, and heading over to the boss's house to scream and bang pots in the cold ..."


sounds like every other Wednesday night

this comment seems very appropriate with your screen name.

Christmas is for ham and bourbon. My favorite holiday.

Figgy pudding, that's a euphemism for oral sex, right?

Agreed. Also what I got out of that article is that the upper crust was paranoid about the possibility of riots and it was sort of like angry trick-or-treating with better food. I say we revert the traditions, damn it - we're already backsliding on the society part, why the hell not?

i hate that dooshprick, and if a young M was my nephew I'd turn him into a cutter, voluntarily or not.

--- when I was young, dumb and full of cum me & a bud had a yearly tradition of getting whacked out of our skulls and hanging out all Christmas Eve in a pr0n theater. yes, this was back when an IBM mainframe took up an entire Annex building, involved incredible amounts of boxes of punched cards and banks of back-up tape drives. so old, dammit. so old.

and kids, the video on the huge screen was just a tiny square because they projected in 38MM or some such shiat. nasty thick black bush everywhere, and mustaches. and the men were rough too.

...Because nothing exemplifies "peace on earth" better than torturing and killing innocent animals.

Subby's headline sounds a lot worse than the article!!

Your family gets to torture and kill animals for Christmas? Damn, some people are just born lucky.

Krispy, are you already drunk for the day?

And even though it wasn't that long, it seemed like he took 10,000 words to barely make a point. I've read shampoo bottles with more pull.

Camouflage. And to keep the kiddies out of the rum.

Ugh on the whole article. Lots of interpretation with no sources for any of his story. Oh wait, what is this I see...

So let me get this straight, you're not a historian but you read this book by a historian and use that one book to the basis of your article writing it as though you are the expert? The only acknowledgment to this is a tiny tagline at the end? Would it have been too much work to ask the historian to write the article?

Anytime the term 'family friendly' is used as a descriptor of an event. You just know that it used be fun. But now its lame.

As long as we keep gender and marriage equality, I'm all for it.

The font on that article was far too small for my old eyes to read.
