I'm 200%+ okay with this. Another commercialized holiday anyway based on pagan beliefs that won't be missed by me.

I, for one, happen to enjoy spending Christmas eve with my family, having a nice dinner, and opening a few presents.

Yeah it'll really suck in the USA this year, right around that time is when the Thanksgiving spike will probably be coming round.

Does anyone think having large gatherings of family anytime before everyone gets a vaccine a good idea?

Thanksgiving is better than Christmas.  For Christmas, you spend hours of time and energy figuring out crap to buy for people, and then more time wrapping said crap, and they don't even want it half of the time.

On Thanksgiving, you eat a large meal, have a beer, and watch football.  You also don't have to work for three more days after that, whereas many people are back at their jobs the day after Christmas.

Christmas is fun for kids and the anticipation of getting a bunch of shiat, but for adults... meh.  The only thing I ever really enjoy about it is Christmas parties, but that's mostly because I enjoy parties and you can have those anytime.  You don't need Santa to drink with your friends.

redonkulon: Does anyone think having large gatherings of family anytime before everyone gets a vaccine a good idea?


My in-laws think so.  Very large family, solid redneck, anti-masking, anti-vaxing Trumpers.  As of two weeks ago 5 members of the family have tested positive for COVID. Given their behavior I'm guessing more of them have tested positive by now.  Two of them work in the medical profession.  But so far nobody has gotten REALLY sick, nobody has gone to the hospital, so it's all good!  It's just the flu.  Party on!!!

We won't be going there for Thanksgiving or Xmas.

I know my small family (just my Mother and me now) have decided to not go to extended family Chrismases this year.  I really hate to see what happens in January.  You KNOW that the Trumpsters (who will either be angry or who will be celebrating like Jesus has returned) will not do the right thing.  It will be like putting all these families in a mixing pot and doing a stir.

Holidays are commercialized because we, as a society, enjoy it.

Still, as far as ridiculous celebrations go, the solestecs are about the best you can hope for.

We need a futurama robot santa to fly around on christmas and take out all the people who don't lock down.

It is scientifically proven, that we we lock down HARD, and i mean weld people into their homes and use the military to execute non essentials on the street, that we can defeat the corona in about 6 months.  But we have to be willing to lock down super hard.  There will be deaths and sacrifices will have to be made.  But after the lock down, we can put up a memorial wall to all the people who had to make the ultimate sacrifice.  People will die either way.  At least if people die from a super hard lockdown, we will defeat the virus.  If we don't lock down, people will die, and the virus will not be defeated.

Choose to win this war.  Choose to defeat the virus.

The real elephant in the room is capitalism, Farkers.

How sustainable is it if you have to rely on holidays to thrive?

And we're seeing how a pandemic can completely disrupt the business world.

This society needs to change.

SVC_conservative: Yeah it'll really suck in the USA this year, right around that time is when the Thanksgiving spike will probably be coming round.


Around 60% of us will be wondering how #45 was re-elected.
The President will be sick again with Covid-19.
The economy will nose-dive as #45 is impeached a second time, this turn with a majority Dem House and Senate.
The President is indicted on tax evasion and fraud by the IRS and NYAG.  More of his staff are arrested on elections fraud and embezzlement of $800 million from the campaign.
We will likely also celebrate with a string of constitutional crisis as key civil rights decisions are overturned by the new Justice Cancer on the SCOTUS as she teams up with Justice pubic hair, Beer Bro, and the two corporate thugs.
It'll be fun!

Yes, I forgot to make an exception for idiot Trump humper anti-vaxers. I don't understand how people in a medical profession could possibly be anti-vaxers or maskless assholes, but my wife relayed a story about a coworker who went to an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doc here in West Seattle and they were VERY anti-mask. I'm like, what the hell?

Still, I guess if they have already been infected, they should all be immune soon enough. Technically that would make it safe to hang out with them for any upcoming holidays. But that begs the question why anyone would want to deal with an entire family of Trumper Uncles for Xmas.

When I was a kid, the local churches were all-in on a campaign to get businesses to stop using "Merry Christmas," since it was a cheap commercialization of something they considered holy.

Decades later, they're all grumpy when a business doesn't use "Merry Christmas."  Consumerism ate their moral backbone and took over as the real religion, at some point.

It will be business as usual for my family. Out of the 20 or so of us that show up for Christmas, there is a way higher chance of alcohol poisoning than any covid problems. Plus, covid really isn't bad in rural CNY, we wear our masks and stay clean, unlike city folk.

Agree completely.  I've spent thanksgiving doing just that with friends for years now.  Always a good time.

If you don't have any living family, Christmas kinda sucks.

Capitalism is the worst, except for every other way of allocating resources.

/don't hate the game, hate that consumers are not given a level playing field, or allowed to make informed choices. Also there are many forms of currency, all of them are imperfect. Trying to value everything in dollars does not work and creates a lot of the problems we see in the world today.

I've already talked to my mom about Christmas. Our state requires a 2 week quarantine if you go out of state. We can't afford to take off time to see my family only to have to spend another 2 weeks at home afterwards. My father has had health issues and my grandma is in her late 80s so it worries me that I might miss my last chance to see them at some point because of everything going on right now.

/yes I know this was about Scotland but let's be honest, the same situation applies to the US
 
2020-10-23 1:50:25 AM  
Well I'm in Melbourne (Australia, not Florida), where we have the daily case numbers back down in the low single digits after a stretch in the hundreds. One case today, and Christmas is looking pretty damned good.

Feeling sorry for all the Farkers (and non-Farkers) living in Trumpistan. Take care.
