    Screw you kids!


    The Mall near me has officially stopped Christmas decorations and for the first time will not put up their Christmas tree and display. Roosevelt Field always had a good Christmas scene with huge Christmas tree. Sometimes a snow covered elf house or Xmas backdrop with Santa sitting there, depending on the year. Well no more. They put Santa in a spaceship and cover him because certain generations are offended by fake snow, trees and Santa. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I am moving to Mars. I'm done here.

    A Long Island mall swapped Santa’s sleigh for something resembling a spaceship and nixed the Christmas tree because it didn’t want to “offend” anyone, irate shoppers told The Post.

    “Me and my husband looked at each other and said, ‘What is that?’ ” Lovdahl recalled. “They said it was because people were offended by the traditional Christmas display, that they had gotten comments in prior years.”

    There were no Christmas wreaths or other typical holiday decor, and Santa’s helpers weren’t elves, but regular folks with red ties covered in white snowflakes. While the sound of ringing bells was in the air, no traditional carols played.

    I like Star-Trek Santa.

    I can't wait to see what they do with the manger scene.

    The mall by me has a Chinese New year celebration that gets bigger and bigger every year. Maybe it's time to start complaing about that as well. An eye for an eye.

    I can't even tell you what they do here, it's been years since I've gone to a traditional shopping mall. If it's not at Costco or the supermarket I don't need it.

    I saw this article yesterday. The glacier display was not well received and wont be used in the future. Non-story.

    It was a good run, right? As I've aged I have been conscious of the deadening of the Christmas tradition.

    In the early part of the 1900's it was religious - but post WWII became increasingly commercial -

    Christmas movies went from Christmas miracle movies to movies that winked at the audience (end of A Christmas Story) - and in the end of the 1900's we got angry Christmas movie - driven by getting the right gift - Jingle All The Way, etc

    I kind of feel like we don't deserve Christmas anymore. What we had went along with religion, etc - but we've evolved to, I don't know what.

    I'm not sure I will miss the Santa Claus Christmas - but the kids are fucked

    I'm agnostic and I love, love, LOVE the whole Christmas season... trees, lights, carols, eggnog, presents, Baby Jesus, and Santa Claus.

    Im really tired of these assholes fucking it up. I'd start an Atheists for Christmas group if I weren't so lazy.
