There used to be a guy at work who put up a sign on the internal notice board every year to the effect that he wouldn't be buying cards for people at work but would be donating the amount of money it would have cost to charity instead.
I'll happily donate 10x what I would have spent on cards
You have to get back to the basics, and think about the original Christmas.
1) Did Jesus get presents - yes, lots.
2) Did everyone get hammered - yes, you can't tell me they didn't partake of the inn bar - I imagine Joseph couldn't wait to get out of the stable and into the lounge.
3) Were there trees - yes.
4) Did anyone send cards - did they fuck.
Anyway, I'm a Santalogist. I think the Bible needs a new chapter to bring in Santa and the Easter bunny, sadly not mentioned in the Bible.
