Pre-emptive Merry Xmas, lurkers.
Here's a collection of x-mas songs from the Venture Bros. universe.

Warning, a few might have some swears.

(My personal favourites are their cover of 'Fairy tale of NY', and 'Baby it's cold in here'.)

I was thinking of starting an "I hate Christmas" thread but I changed my mind.

Merry Christmas Lurkers.

RE: Pre-emptive Merry Xmas, lurkers.
The "spirit" of Christmas has almost nothing to do with JC, and more about giving. People want to call it an American holiday or a religious holiday, both for which a point can be argued, but I think it has really become a worldwide symbol for altruism and showing brotherly love to each other. If you don't like Christmas for religious or anti-American reasons, then you have are only deceiving yourself; and if you don't like Christmas because you don't like buying people presets, then bah-humbug to you Tongue .

"He sat on his bed in the darkness, crouched up, hugging his knees, and holding his breath from the strain of thought, he pondered. But the more intensely he thought, the clearer it become to him that it was indubitably so, that in reality, looking upon life, he had forgotten one little fact – that death will come, and all ends; that nothing was even worth beginning, and that there was no helping it anyway. Yes, it is awful, but it is so."

I have many thoughts on this...

First, this is really the winter solstice, and usurping Dies Natalis of Sol Invictus. JC was probably born in late September (when the shepherds might actually be tending their flocks), probably nearer to the Feast of Tabernacles on September 29th.

Next, yes, the spirit of giving... But, usurped by commercialism, and conspicuous consumption. For most of my relatives (except the children), I began to opt to give a small functional gift, then also include a receipt in their name to Heifer Intl. or similar organization that will get the money to someone who really needs it.

Mostly, I enjoy the more Celtic and northern European pagan attributes... the mistletoe license to kiss... the yule log... the decorated cookies... the decorated evergreens to pay homage to the spirits of the forest... the dancing naked around a fire burning money... wait... I bet they don't do that everywhere...

So... Happy belated birthday JC.

"Can there be anything so important as to cry out that what we call romance, poetry, intellectual beauty, is the only signal that the supreme Enchanter, or some one in His councils, is speaking of what has been, and shall be again, in the consummation of time?" - William Butler Yeats, 1901, Magic - Ideas of Good and Evil.
