Merry Christmas! (I&P Version)

Recommended Posts

Merry Christmas, y'all! 

I put this in the 'Issues and Politics' forum in case some of you wanted to suggest that we say 'Happy Holidays' instead of 'Merry Christmas'.  Masticate my hiney!!

1- I wish that every girl scout troop finds enough female members and adult leaders to successfully  launch their own scouting adventure.

2- I hope that all Scouters find satisfaction in their efforts, and that their visions of Scouting's gifts are fully realized.  I appreciate that you are giving of your time.

3 - I freely share with all Scouters who are carrying forward with the new vision of Scouting, that I am jealous of your zeal; and no matter how misguided that I think that you are, I do wish you success.  I just could not do it any more.

4 - If you should find your stocking full of switches on Christmas morning, remember; it makes good kindling.

5 - Nevermind...

 

My 19 year old daughter is home from school tonight and cajoled me into watching what she remembers as a her favorite Christmas movie with daddy : 'Die Hard'.  It was great!  Beethoven wrote some great sinister rifts.  In the spirit of 'Die Hard', "Yippe Kye Yea, Mother Pluckers! And to all a good night!"

Legal Caveat: In case any of you should ever quote anything that I have said in this post and use it against me in a future thread, I shall deny that I wrote it and claim that my account was hacked.

If we want to nit-pick about language -- are you sure you mean "girl scout troop"?   Or do you mean "scout troop for girls"?

Either way, I agree with you that

Happy Channukah,  Happy Jesus' Birthday,  Merry Kwanzaa,  A Felicitous Holiday Season,  Jolly Super Saturday (like black Friday only shopping opportunity before 25 December),  A Pleasant Winter Solstice Yule,  and preparation for the New Year (take your pick).

I&P is definitely the right place for this thread, because Die Hard is NOT a Christmas movie.

In order to be a Christmas movie, it needs to be about Christmas, or Christmas needs to be integral to the story.  Just because a movie takes place near the holidays, doesn't cut it.  In Die Hard, for example, the only thing "Christmasy" was that they were there for a Christmas party.  Change it so that they were there celebrating "Nancy in Accounting's" retirement and the story is the same.

If “It’s a Wonderful Life” is a Christmas movie, then Die Hard and Gremlins are as well.  Case closed!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate.  (Which actually includes me even though I'm Jewish, because my wife is not.  I'm not there for the religious elements, but the peace and joy and goodwill etc. stuff transcends religion.)
