I'm not bothered by Kwanzaa or any other holiday that has nothing to do with me. Diwali, Rosh Hashanah, Ramadan. Means nothing to me.
Yeah, man, I figure whatever gets people through the night, through their day-to-day, whatever, is fine by me so long as it's not harming anyone. This thing was staged, so whatever, but it does illustrate a point where some people really get worked up by others doing fairly innocent stuff. It's like when people get fired up about hearing "Merry Christmas" and then other people get fired up by hearing "Happy Holidays."
Meh, I don't really care either way. I'm sure there will be the same "Put the Christ back in Christmas" billboards around, it'll create a controversy, some wacky person will get offended by the few lines of the Gospels in Charlie Brown's Christmas and demand it not be used in a school play, etc.
I don't care either way, though I do say "Merry Christmas" instead of the milquetoast "Happy Holidays." Oh, and real egg-nog. Fuck's sake, I'll get lit up on that shit sometime in the next month.
It's mostly shopping centers that play this Christmas music for the month of December. It's mostly, if not entirely, adults who are shopping this time of year. So why are we all forced to listen to Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman? This is kid's music. It's bizarre to make everyone listen to music made for children for an entire month. It's like making us listen to Barney the Dinosaur every June.
