Re: The official christmas thread

well those who arent in good terms with christmass dont have to post in this topic...simply as that. We could drawn to conclusion that christmass is way pass of its religious meaning and formed into more like capitalist celebration of western values and vanity. As it draws the idea of pacan midwinter fest, im Ok whit it as i consider myself as some sort of wannabe pre-christian finnish/scandinavic religionist.

Re: The official christmas thread

yes, Christmas is no longer a simple religious holiday. it's a combination of recieving gifts and... well, giving gift:p

and santa claus does not live in finland, it lives in canada (close to north pole:D ) all the way up north where only seals and polar bears live. that's why he can keep his little factory secret, because there're no humans!:roll:

this means war!!:nana: :p ;)

he lives near Russian border but has an office at Rovaniemi, capital of Lapland...

It was quite shock to hear that 'alternet information' back when we were kids...Its a some sort of land mark for all grown ups to explain finnish kids why TV says something and the sosiety other...

As for Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

Santa definitely live in Finland.

I once heard a theory that Santa is a communist so that might explain why he is still around.

I Don't celebrate Christmas myself really but i love food and food is abundant around Christmas. :)

However i have a particular dislike to the gift part of the holiday since i believe that one should get (buy, recieve, make) things because (and when) he needs them.

Finland? Santa Claus is a Russian lengend (St.Nicholas) so I say SIBERIA!! :D

Here's something interesting..
Santa Claus belongs to childhood;
St. Nicholas models for all of life.

Santa Claus, as we know him, developed to boost Christmas sales—the commercial Christmas message;
St. Nicholas told the story of Christ and peace, goodwill toward all—the hope-filled Christmas message.

Santa Claus encourages consumption;
St. Nicholas encourages compassion.

Santa Claus appears each year to be seen and heard for a short time;
St. Nicholas is part of the communion of saints, surrounding us always with prayer and example.

Santa Claus flies through the air—from the North Pole;
St. Nicholas walked the earth—caring for those in need.

Santa Claus, for some, replaces the Babe of Bethlehem;
St. Nicholas, for all, points to the Babe of Bethlehem.

Santa Claus isn't bad;
St. Nicholas is just better.
