Because Saint Nicholas never worshipped Jesus, did he?

You know why they can't have a living nativity at Ole Miss?


They can't find three wise men or a virgin!

"Ho Ho Ho, and what do you want for Christmas, Baby Jesus?"
"Peace on Earth and good will toward man."
"Well, how about a clock-work train?"
"Ah, yes! That's much better. Forget about peace on Earth, I don't care."

I wish I had been able to stop and take a picture of it, but a few weeks back I saw one where Santa was not only bowing to Jesus' manger, Santa was also gifting Jesus an American flag.

Yesterday on my way home I saw a huge sign in front of one of our larger Christian schools/churches that advertised their "Community Snow Day Celebration!". It does not snow here. Also, it's on the solstice. While I think it's neat they're recognizing the significance of the day and the whole rebirth of the unconquered sun thing, I also found it both strangely disturbing and amusing they were going to Pagan things up a bit more. I had a brief mental flash of a many centuries future version of FOX news trumpeting the "war on the solstice!" and claiming it's not Pagan and never has been Pagan because whargarble.

I'm not really sure how to feel about that as a whole. But if it's free and there will be food - I'm totally going. I'll figure it out then.

Wonder if they'll have the Easter Bunny hanging next to Jesus on a cross next spring.

Funny, all this noise recently about the ethnicity of Jesus/ Santa Clause. Isn't Christianity basically an anglo tradition? Certainly, it's centered around events which allegedly occurred in the Middle East, but the middle easterners really didn't bother with it. Not that it really matters what color a couple of fairy tale characters are, but can you imagine the outcry there would be if Mohammed were anglicized?

If one fairy tale is subject to interpretation, they all are.

Well, Anglicanism is.  Or at least was originally.  Otherwise, not so much.

Oh fark yeah!  I almost forgot about KFC!  Japan KFC ain't bad.  I think it's probably better than stateside.  However, I'm not too fond of their strange, donut-like biscuits.  I remember having to preorder my Christmas chicken dinner on the first day of December or else you were farking out of luck because the lines were so long when it got down to the last days before Christmas.

I also read it as "bowling" and clicked on the link. I was looking for a spiritual moment. "Bowling" has endless possibilities for a new way forward.

More bending over than bowing.

Given the whole nativity scene is extra-Biblical, may as well go have fun with it. In the Bible the three wise men show up some period of time after Jesus was born, not the night he was born as nativity scenes depict. Also while the manger may have been wood framed, and even that's unlikely, it certainly wouldn't have been an all wood affair as is often depicted.

Considering the origins of Santa Claus are strongly influenced by the Norse, I'd say originally... no.

Is there anything in our culture that's based on, you know, reality?
 
2013-12-18 08:28:10 AM
Just for a change, they need to stop having a "living nativity scene" and replace it with a "dead nativity scene" where everyone is a zombie. Nothing says goodwill and peace on earth like an reanimated cannibal holocaust.
