I did change over to a non-festive avatar, but I slipped back (in a Ninja like fashion) a few days ago.

I've been watching the making of documentaries for the first lord of the rings. I've watched this before when the dvd first came out, but, yeah, I've got a day to kill. Really amazing stuff.

Have you read the 'children of thurin' yet? Have I already asked you that?

I try and reply to this thread on the 1st of December, because today is the day I put up my christmas tree. I was just looking on the wikipedia, and apparently this is an australia/new zealand tradition. It coincides with the first day of summer.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Today is the first of the month, and so up goes my tree.

This is the 5th year of this thread!

Anecdotally, nowever, I refuse to celebrate christmas as its a christan celebration. I'm agnostic. I can't think of any good reason to celebrate christmas. 'Everyone else is' isn't a good reason. I take offence at religous imagery at christmas and easter.


Born again or something?


You know, RWS, after you made this comment, I was a lot more careful about what I said, and I attempt to be a little more consistent.

Sugar, why does it matter? I'm an atheist, my wife is a non-theist as well, but we do Christmas because it's a lovely holiday.

It mattered because he had said that he "refused to celebrate christmas", and putting up a tree and buying stuff sounded like he did.

It was just something that didn't make sense at the time. Probably just something he said in agnostic fervour.

Celebrate whatever you want to. No skin off my nose.

Glad to know the time I spent blabbering away here didn't go to waste. ;)
