Brainsick: stolen from Pagans
NathanAllen: Can I get a Cliff's notes about the in-laws complaining about the crab and tenderloin dinner we hosted while they and their ungrateful hell-spawn break shiat around our house and refuse to bus a plate, cup, or napkin. Not a single thanks but plenty of complaints about the value of the gifts we gave? Cherry on the shiat sandwich? Sister-in-Law who was supposed to bring apps showed up with a couple of sealed GFS boxes, thanks for the work. Same one who 'volunteered' to host Thanksgiving then talked my wife into having us come up early so we could cook turkey, ham, and sides. But that's okay, she bought some pre-made rolls.

ryarger: macross87: *Grabs popcorn*Saturnalia is a biatch of a holiday. It's a shame they renamed I Christmas.This is a really popular meme this year (yours is the third post in this thread alone) but it leaves me a bit perplexed on a few counts:* You're not just learning this are you? I learned about Yule and the origins of the holiday in Catholic school the '80s* No one, even the hyper religious, disagrees with the facts* As I just posted in another thread, even accepting that Christian Christmas as we know it dates from the Middle Ages, that still makes it the second oldest holiday tradition we as a culture observe (next to Christian Easter). Even New Year's Day is younger, let alone MLK Jr Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Halloween and Thanksgiving.
