Christmas. What does it mean to you?

  1. Hey all.
    Christmas is once again almost here and it has prompted me to wonder what other people see Christmas as. Being a Christian I of course believe that it is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. There are, of course, many who do not believe this.
    One thing I do hate about this time of year though is that Christmas has basically been turned into a commercialistic whore - the drive for the dollars to be spent is huge whereas things of greater importance are sometimes ingored.
    So yeah, just wondering what Christmas means for you (if anything) and what you like/dis-like about it.
    Cheers.

  3. To me Christmas means a few things. It's a day off of work, It's another year tacked onto my old age, and most importantly I buy myself presents every year and have my mother wrap them for me.
     
  4. You mean frivolous material possesions like Mercedes?
     
  5. Or any other car for that matter, not just MB
     
  6. No, just Mercedes. They are over rated, over priced, and over weight.
     
  7. it means i get free shit
     
  8. stop, seriously. I know he is an easy target, but don't help to turn this thread into a flame war.
     
  9. presents, thats all..
     
  10. I will be in Vegas during christmas... so this year, it means, gifts, casinos and awesome shows... and a hotel. Not to mention Christmas dinner.
     
  11. are you 21?
     
  12. It means I get to watch all the same old christmas specials and movies that I've been watching every year for the last 22 years, and I don't care what anyone says because they all kick ass.

    It also means that the majority of the western world perverts a Christian celebration into a mass consumerist orgy driven by corporate advertising and greed.

    It also means I get to have dinner with my family that I don't get to see often.
     
  13. oh yeah. it also means 24 hours of "A Christmas Story" greatest holiday movie EVER. and thats a fact.
     
  14. Chirstmas trees kick ass.
    Free shit kicks ass.
    Honika or whatever sucks.
     
  15. I thought you were muslim, you stupid puke.
     
  16. I was being sarcastic, stupid. But, by the logic in my sarcastic comment, any car that isn't hte cheapest car out there, would be a frivolous possesion. This means MB, BMW, Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Fiat, Lancia, Maserati, Pagani, Volvo, Saab, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Landrover, TVR, Kia, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Holden, Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, GMC, Chevy, Pontiac, Hummer, Cadillac, Oldsmobile, Saturn, Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, and any others i forgot make cars that are frivolous possesions, but I was only joking, moron.
     
  17. Saturn? Haha.
     
  18. AMGrulz. It's kinda hard to sense sarcasm over the internet.
     
  19. Yes, I know, I should've known better, but I'm not the only one to attempt such things <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  20. Christmas means, first and foremost for me, to celebrate the birth of Christ and what Christ means for me.
     
  21. Jesus wasn't born on December 25.
     
  22. Exactly. Same here.
    Oh yeah, your sig is my fav verse. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  23. Chirtmas, through the years, has become a pagan holiday that almost everyone celebrates, unless you are jewish.
     
  24. RIGHT. I WAS BORN ON DECEMBER 24. PEACE BE WITH YOU BROTHERS AND SISTERS.
     
  25. Christmas has a new meaning to me today. It's a time when there are more idiot drivers on release than the rest of the year. People can't drive, even in parking lots.

    I'm not a Christian, nor am I a causian, nor was I brought up in western countries. Christmas, really doesn't mean much to me. So are birthdays.
