It’s Christmas again. That time of year when everyone argues about the meaning of Christmas while calling people they disagree with “assholes”.
The caption on the video labels this guy as “CRAZY” (in caps). But there is nothing he says that is in any way objectionable, crazy or untrue. Parents hate him for telling the truth.
Christmas, as we know it is actually three different holidays. It is a Pagan holiday, a secular holiday and a Christian religious holiday, all celebrated on the same day with the same name. No wonder people are confused.
But the part about Santa is absolutely true. Santa does not exist and every adult knows this. Yet they all think it is fun to lie to their kids about it until the kids are old enough to figure it out.
FREE CLUE: half the kids in that line have already figured it out. Other kids told them last year. They talk to each other about oral sex. You think they keep the Santa secret as well as the Adults do?
Aside from this being a twisted lie, based on nothing, it is a pointlessly stupid lie that does nothing to make the child better off. Why would any parent participate in this nonsense?
In addition to the pointless ritual of forcing your kids to sit on a homeless stranger’s lap, we add pointlessness by creating huge charities where everyone is encouraged to give age appropriate unwrapped new toys (but not toy guns) to poor children. If the children are “poor”, don’t you think they would benefit more from something useful? Like new socks? Or a visit to the Dentist? Come to think of it, didn’t we just give all those kids a back-to-school backpack full of paper, pens, and hand sanitizer? Shouldn’t that count?
