"W I N T E R F E S T I V A L"


Figured that I'd go with the apparently PC greeting - the newspaper said that some schools here in the UK aren't celebrating Christmas due to it's obvious religeous connection. That'd be discriminating against people of other religeons (such as Jedi's) so it's now the "winter festival" [lol]


Anyway, I'm just finishing up some packing and then jumping on a train back to my parents place for 10 days. Given the way that a little fog has brought parts of the UK transport system to a halt ([rolleyes]) I'm not looking forward to 3-4hrs travelling.


Just for a bit of "developer journal" material - I've copied all of my book research, code and content over to my laptop to take home with me. I should get some free time to sit and work at my parents house - no internet or GDNet to distract me [grin]

Till next year...

How dare you discriminate against those readers in the Southern hemisphere? I'm writing to my MP.

Oh that made me laugh! Then again, down under we're looking at a white Christmas, 16 degrees C. Our whether is pretty screwed down here. Biggest drought in history, and then a 16 degree day in summer! Argh!

Oh, and happy Christmas too!

Merry Christmas, Jack.

I hate all this PC crap. I don't celebrate Christmas, and I have no problems if others do. I don't mind if they don't celebrate my holidays as long as they don't expect a Christmas present. :)

And you'd always insult anyone who doesn't have a holiday this time of year. Most likely Muslims, most years, since their calendar isn't synchronised with the Christian one.

Your green and red letters are offensive to my black and white view of the world. Did you know that birthdays are offensive to some people. Jehovah's witnesses don't believe in celebrating any holiday including the day you were born. They will be offended until all celebration is removed from public institutions.

A_better_party = Tolerance(ideas);

Happy "the holidays"

[rolleyes] and I thought I'd seen all the strange north/south definitions from Londoners...

Agreed! I'm not religious myself, so it often confuses me why I seem to celebrate it - it's more of an excuse to spend time with the family and spend lots of money [grin]

[wow] Seriously?!

I'm quite happy that they're not a serious contender for world domination - that'd be a joyless world!

Cheers,
Jack
