Mean Spirits

I'm as susceptible to Christmas blues as anyone. I agree that expectations get out of hand, the stress level can be just stupid, and I often stop and wonder WHY am I doing this again?
And yet, I composed a blog post in my head entitled "Bah Humbitch" upon reading a Leah McLaren column that told everyone not to send her Christmas cards, especially with stupid pictures of their children wearing Santa suits or antlers. And I left my first negative comment at a blog I generally really like today (not a 'you suck and you're stupid and I hate you' comment, just a 'this is a little unfair and I'm a little put out' comment -- I know, it must have really stung, in amongst all the comments telling her how fantastic and wise and one hundred and forty percent correct she is). And for the life of me, I can't really figure out why.

Okay, maybe I can, in the case of the Leah McLaren piece (it's called 'I'm Not on Your Christmas Card List this Year? Cool', and I've tried to link to it seven fucking times and the the page disappears every time, which makes me even madder). I'm used to Leah McLaren being bitchy and superior -- it's part of her schtick. But somehow, her snarking about how Christmas cards are meaningless because corporations also send them out and they've been replaced by social networking and they're bad for the environment (puh-lease!) made me instantly livid. Because Christmas cards is one part of Christmas that I'm actually quite good at. I don't send them to the people I'm on Facebook with, people who read my daily status updates -- I send them to my old university professor and my relatives in Saskatchewan, people who are interested in our lives and like to see yearly pictures of the children. I write a few paragraphs in each card, a lot of the same stuff but slightly modified for each person. I totally get that most people would find doing this arduous and overwhelming. But I like writing. I like framing our small adventures and domestic blessings. It's enjoyable for me, and by all account, also for the people who receive them.
I like getting Christmas cards too. I like seeing how babies turn into toddlers and then real grown-up people. I keep most of them and look them over the next year when I unpack the decorations. Sometimes I string them with old Christmas pictures on ribbons and hang them around the house.
So why do I give a crap that Leah Mclaren hates Christmas cards? I guess I don't, really. But I reserve my right to proclaim that she's full of shit. Does the fact that I get a Christmas card from my financial advisor and car dealership cheapen the ones I get from my husband's grandmother and my best friend from grade 3? Not in the least, and it's just stupid to say it does, in my opinion.
I don't think I even have the energy to get into the other thing. I get that Jewish people must suffer from Christmas fatigue. I've never been one of those people writing into the paper asserting my right to shout 'Merry Christmas' in everyone's face and deck the world with tinsel and holly. But things like strangers telling your children they'll get presents if they're good and stores telling children to write wish lists and they'll be fulfilled are inappropriate no matter what -- those people and those stores would be offensive at any time of the year. And how much energy can we put into enumerating all the people we might offend before we say or do or decorate or sing anything? Eve brought home a dreidl that she made in class yesterday, and tomorrow they're making gingerbread houses. They collect food for Christmas hampers and toys for Toy Mountain. They know there are kids in their class that don't celebrate Christmas.
I've lost my thread. Maybe it's just one of those things like being able to make fun of your own family but getting pissed off when someone else does. I know there's a lot of crass commercialism and cloying sentimentality associated with Christmas. I work quite hard to avoid bringing that into my home, and to expose my children to the best aspects of the holiday, and I guess it just stings when it feels like some people only acknowledge the negative.
So I will now take a breath and try to dig out my peace on earth and goodwill towards other bloggers. Even the ones who hate Christmas cards and Santa.

I am PHENOMENALLY bad at Christmas cards. I always plan to send them out, and I only remember about 50% of the time. However, I will say that I love to receive them, whoever they're from.

The Christmas commercialism is crazy, no two ways about it. And I can see why it would be particularly annoying if you didn't celebrate the holiday. But I can also see how it's hard to read someone else's gripes about something you love. Because, in spite of the obvious flaws, I love it, too.

Merry Christmas! ;)

I didn't take it personally. I think you might have misunderstood my post as anti-Christmas. I think Christmas is a lovely holiday, and I am always honored when believers invite us to join in this most holy of days. But the obsession with Santa is exhausting for non-Christian parents this time of year.

I'm going to be one here who says, "YOU are 140% correct!" You take from this wonderful holiday season what means something to you and celebrate it. What's the big deal? So everyone is a little happier around this time. So people exchange gifts. So a man in a jolly red suit brings kids toys. So you get invited to a holiday party. So you get a newsy note, complete with pictures of the kids disguised as a Christmas card. So? What's the big deal? I love this post. Peace on Earth and Goodwill towards You! You rock!

Amber said...

I love getting cards. Perhaps because it is one thing left in the holidays that connects people together. I'd much rather get a card with a personal note in it than a gift for example. Catching up with people, even if only once a year is really special and my favorite part of any holiday. And I couldn't care less if said card was bedazzled in all things Santa. If that is the way the card giver rolls then so be it.

Mary Lynn said...

I'm on the same page as you...I like sending cards and I like receiving them. I generally send to people who don't tend to read my blog or use Facebook much. I actually have a fair number of friends and relatives who are not at all into social media. I include a picture of the kids, too. If they don't want it, they're welcome to pitch it, but should I leave it out when the vast majority of people I know actually DO appreciate it?

As for greetings, part of my problem is that hubby and I are not at all religious. My vision of Christmas is more of a secular celebration of family (that's not my parent's vision of Christmas because they actually are quite religious, but that's mine). I have a terrible habit of coming out with "Merry Christmas" then realizing I'm saying it to a friend who's Jewish and then stuttering through the last half of the phrase so that I surely must sound like I have some odd speech impediment. Since I'm not particularly religious, it would be so much easier if I just learned to say "Happy Holidays." Oh well. Mind you, I'm more than happy to be wished a Happy Chanukah.

I also keep my Christmas cards and take a look through the pile year after year. I love the pictures of the kids and looking back at when the they were little. I think about friends that have left us and families that are no longer together. I guess that sounds kind of sad but it's just my way of remembering and reflecting on days gone by. However, I suck at mailing Christmas cards. Sometimes I write a few and then never actually get them mailed. I'll keep working on that though and some day you'll get a package from me with 30 cards with pictures. Of course it will also be a collection of 'Jesus cards' cause we're catholic and those are my favorites. I look for the most religious looking card I can find just to entertain. "Look at this super Jesus card!", I want you to exclaim and laugh.

Julie said...

I don't do Christmas cards. Not because I think they suck or are inapporpriate or are the second coming of the anti-christ. It's because I am cheap and lazy!

I do enjoy getting then though. And miraculously I am still on people's lists even though they don't get any from me.

I also keep them every year. Not for any sentimental value, but I cut them up and use them as name tags for gifts. It's recycling. Did I mention I was cheap?

Hi guys,

I know this might be a bit off topic but seeing that a bunch of you own websites, where would the best place be to host. Someone recommended I use [url=http://bit.ly/aTAtZb]Blue Host[//url] for $6.95 a month which seems like a great deal. Anyone here on www.blogger.com using them?

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Uncashable Bonus. This is the so-called 'sticky' bonus. This can never be cashed, but its usefulness lies in that fact that it stays in your account and enables you to use the bonus account to 'leverage' higher wagers. These free casino chips stay latent in your account simply to allow you to do things which you otherwise could not.



8. He emailed again confirming his "play through requirements" and the terms and conditions of the wagering requirements for them to be considered "fair gaming". In addition to the play rhough requirement there are requirements for the maximum allowable bet per hand. In his case we averaged all three deposits and his maximum bet is $46 per hand.

- Play primarily for fun, not for survival income. Sure, we all want to win, and if you do ...great! Don't make it a career choice; enjoy the online casino atmosphere and the thrill of the games. Don't bet the farm on them or have your real estate agent put an offer down on one because you feel lucky. Repeat, have fun!


First, never choose a casino on the sole basis of his ranking in the search engine results. They are not necessarily good rankings on how a casino. You must go through several online casino sites to compare the benefits in detail and then make a decision. For example, should offer a bonus and, if so, how much. Are there any special promotions available?



1. You need to go on a vacation if you want to play in the regular brick-n-mortar casinos. That will cost a good amount of money and take away a whole lot of your quality time. Then, your family may want to tag along, as they too don't want to miss out on the action. So, in the end you will end up paying for airfares, hotel rooms, car rentals, food, shopping and hanging around. When you actually get to the casino, you will find that there's very little money left to spend on the casino games, which is the reason why you went there in the first place! However, online casinos spare you the trouble of traveling and wasting money on riff-raffs. Plus they save you a whole lot of time as you can play in the comfort of your home at a time of your own convenience and at your own pace plus within your own budget too.

Another issue that you must stay on top of is price fluctuations from the bookmaker. The prices for placing bets do not just change with different bookies but even with the same. You cannot take it for granted that the prices that are quoted in print like the Racing Post will be valid at the time of the event. With sports betting things can change very rapidly so be sure that the price will be honored before placing your bet otherwise this can seriously affect the outcome of your arbitrage sports betting.

The Parlay System is one of the most famous of betting systems that are commonly used in horse racing. Many have said that contrary to other sports betting systems, the Parlay System has a pyramiding effect on your profit which means your winnings are played on successive wagers.

It appears that the United States legal system is closer than ever before to cutting off ties with any type of online gambling within its boundaries. This includes poker, casinos, and sports betting among others. Generally speaking, anything that has to do with transmitting money via the internet as far as gambling is concerned is being cracked down on quite harshly.

The second group fares a lot worse because, unfortunately for them, the variance in the "value" range will be different for each of them, and it will also vary considerably from bet to bet, making the concept of value mere words (and therefore meaningless). he reality is that the majority of people do not have any means whatsoever of identifying "true" value bets.

The best sports betting odds are in actuality just numbers, they may be an ever changing set of numbers but just numbers nonetheless. There are many different factors involved in the computation of not the least of which is the number of bettors placing bets on one team. If a bookie sees this happening he will give the team that is dentified as the loser more points and take points from the team deemed the winning team.

The changes that are going to be made to the Wire Act are quite simple. First and foremost the internet will be added to the list of wire communications that are prohibited. Of course the internet was not around in 1961 so it was not included in the first draft. In addition, penalties for breaking the Wire Act will increase from a maximum of two years in prison to five.

Another important subject I must briefly refer to is "catch-up" staking. If you find that you need to employ this tactic regularly, it means three things: (1) your Selection System sucks, (2) you haven't got a clue about what constitutes a proper Staking Plan, and (3) you have turned your chances of regularly and quickly losing your Base Bank to a 100% certainty!

Всем привет!

Недавно перед мной встала задача, куда деть накопишиеся [b]европоддоны[/b], или еще их называют [b]Паллеты[/b],
[b]Поддоны[/b], [b]Европаллет[/b]ы Размеры 800*1200, 1000*1200- Это [u]Тара Пром назначения[/u].
Немного предистории.
Сам я работаю кладовщиком на складе. Нам приходит много продукции на [b]Европоддонах[/b],
товар продаем а поддоны остаются, у нас возник вопрос куда их девать.
Раньше мы их выкидывали.
Потом мне подсказали, что за поддоны можно получить деньги.
Начал звонить по фирмам везде были цены низкие,
потом друзья мне подсказали, что в Челябинске есть такая Фирма "[b]Уралсклад[/b]",
около 10 лет на Рынке Промышленной Тары с прекрасной репутацией.
Я нашел их сайт в интернет - [url=http://www.uralsklad.ru]www.uralsklad.ru[/url] и позвонил по тел. +7(351) 233-07-14.
Буквально через час подъехал их представитель, Авто с Логотипом "[url=http://www.uralsklad.ru]Поддоны Челябинск[/url]".
Цены закупочные оказались самые высокие в г. Челябинске.
Все цивилизовано грузчики загрузили [b]Паллеты[/b] ешё и лом поддонов купили, расчитались на месте наличными.
Про другие фирмы я узнавал либо Цены низкие, либо Бракуют много, да и денег от них не дождешься.

Так что если у вас завалялись [b]европоддоны[/b], не торопитесь их выбрасывать, лучше обменяйте их на деньги.

Great help, I am new to this site, but learn a lot. Auto insurance is a funny thing. Each state has different rules and regulations on how auto insurance coverage should work. Despite all these laws and regulations, consumers have power over their coverage. Here are three items that your auto insurance agent won’t tell you when you sign the dotted line: 1. Rates are like fads, they are always changing Auto insurance rates are in a constant state of chang
