    Dear Santa,
    I'd like my FX-8150 RMA to come back, and two HD7970. Possibly a 3930K or three, and a Rampage IV Formula/Extreme if it fits in the budget.

    I'd also like to sleep at night.

    From,

    You sound like a Jehovah Witness or a sad atheist.

    When it comes to religion, maybe this - "non-religious Universalism" would describe mine... but even so - i can't deny that XMAS is a nice tradition which is worth celebrating.

    ===

    Merry XMAS - to you all.

    Even so - it's the same, being Asian is far from being an excuse for such behavior. If some holiday is not part of your culture - you feel justified in attacking it (similar in meaning to "racism")... Some people can be so hateful.

    How did I attack Christmas???

    I learned the term yuletime from two video games - Guildwars and Lotro which have their own annual xmas like events with lots of references to yuletime:



    I looked up what this meant ages ago and actually preferred the terminology.

    Wishing a happy yuletime is no different to wishing happy holidays, you dont need to refer to it as christmas.

    It's actually more properly referred to as yuletide

    Merry Christmas, albeit a little late on my part

    And a happy new year! Enjoy it since obviously the world ends in 2012 and there won't be another one, right?

    ... don't act dumb... if that was the case you'd simply say "Happy yuletime" and wouldn't have bothered with it - but what you said was:

    ... which later you tried to justify with:

    ...and even latter - you probably realized that it's a lame justification for the way you behaved.

    @ XSAlliN, I'm christian and celebrate Christmas as the birth of my savior. But there are plenty of valid arguements which support the pagan origins of the modern Christmas holiday (the tree is the perfect example of a pagan tradition which most christians honor).

    I didn't see his post as offensive in the least, he was simply saying "Happy Holidays" in his own way. You're the one coming off as hostile IMO. Just chillax and enjoy the season

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone

    Ok... so if some member says something like: "I wish you'd all die" - that can be taken in same way, probably a certain type of rocker who says "Happy Holidays" in his own way.

    The Christmas tree, wreaths, mistletoe, yuletide, exchanging of gifts, and Santa Claus are all Greek and European pagan traditions... so, Happy Holidays to you pagans, Merry Christmas to the Christians, Happy Hanukkah to the Jewish people, and Happy New Year to everyone.

    Cause of marketing - having a decent salary (or should i put it - having enough money) most celebrate it in a way or another... unless you're like Ghost.... or a guy that feels like "forever alone meme (as in ....)" ... in that case i guess it would suck "celebrating it aloneee....".
