look up any word, like bitch stare:
Christian holiday moved to conflict with the time of year when everyone everywhere (and everywhen) celebrates the winter solstice (point of Earth's orbit where, in the northern temperate zones, the sun's zenith slows its southern decent and begins moving north again = another year to live).

2. Hodgepodge of ancient and not-so-ancient rituals, including sacrificing a tree to Mother Nature, celebrating the miracle that got Nicholas his sainthood (reassembling murdered and hacked up child parts in a barrel back into children), and, oh, the birth of Jesus, a jew, and the guy that made 12 of his buddies drink his blood and eat his flesh, before he got executed and came back from the dead. (Can you say "zombie"?)

3. Day that Santa brings new socks and undies. If your bad, you get coal (to keep from freezing) and an orange (for vitamin C to prevent scurvy).
Fucking Christmas. I wanna get drunk.

Now human beings worshipped the great god Santa, a creature with fearsome claws, and his wife Mary. And every Christmas Eve, people of UK go to war with the country of Turkey. They then eat the Turkey people for Christmas dinner. Like savages!
We must appease The Great Santa in honor of Christmas, before we can eat the turkey people!

Christmas is a Pagan holiday. In ancient Babylon, the feast of the Son of Isis (Goddess of Nature) was celebrated on December 25. Raucous partying, gluttonous eating and drinking, and gift-giving were traditions of this feast.

In Rome, the Winter Solstice was celebrated many years before the birth of Christ. The Romans called their winter holiday Saturnalia, honoring Saturn, the God of Agriculture. In January, they observed the Kalends of January, which represented the triumph of life over death. This whole season was called Dies Natalis Invicti Solis, the Birthday of the Unconquered Sun. The festival season was marked by much merrymaking.

In 313 AD Emperor Constantine converted the Roman Empire to Christianity so stop it from engulfing itself in civil war. December 25th, a highly spiritual day already, became a prime day for Christianity's savior to be born.

A bad excuse for your family to get together, get drunk and fight. Also a time of year when people spend horrible sums of money on useless crap that will be thrown into the corner until next christmas when it is given to someone else and the cycle begins again!
I'm really looking forward to christmas!

The only point in time when it is okay to eat candy out of socks in front of a dead tree.
I just love Christmas! I also enjoy the candy out of my stocking (Replacement word for 'enormously large sock') and sitting in front of our Christmas tree (Replacement word for 'dead pine tree')!

The season of the year where parents are nagged and nagged for lots of presents until they break down and buy them.
Kid: Oh I can't wait for Christmas this year!
Parent: Yay, my money's gonna fly out the window and we'll end up on the street.
Kid: But won't Santa get my presents for me?
Parent: Yeh, about that...
