What do you wish to receive on Christmas day? A new computer would be nice and maybe some better car windows that thoroughly blocks the jungle music coming from hommie-g's car.

I think everyone who celebrates Christmas does, without knowing it. The elves, the holly, the tree, the waissailing , etc...It's a good thing.

Yes, however there are specific things they don't do... such as the part about the gods.

Santa Claus himself is just a pagan symbol, the reindeer sleigh (Thors chariot flies through the sky drawn by goats, the yule goat was the forerunner to the reindeer. Thor also presides over the Yule fest on Dec. 25) the helper elves, the giving of toys. The Christmas tree, the Yule log, the candles and lights on the tree... so much of that is part of ancient belief, which is now mixed with European, Christian culture. Christmas nowadays is more about worship of money and possessions, though.

Well, I already got my christmas presents so to speak. I got dress shirts, italian made leather jacket, cashmere black coat, two pairs of boots, a pair of regular shoes, DVDs off ebay (Taxi Driver, Heat, Habana Blues, Goodfellas, Casino, American Psycho, American History X), "A people's commune" for the SP book club. :-D


perhaps i will get a few books here and there.

A 360.

Maybe an electric shaver that actually works. I've got hair-cutting shavers that will dice a swath through the thickest of hair--and not one of my beard shavers can cut a few-days-old stubble without jerking my face (painfully). Annoying.

An external hard drive.

I'd love to upgrade this old PC, but at this point the mobo and the PSU are too ancient to be added to. I just need to bite the bullet and buy a new system, but that's an expensive project for next Christmas.

I'll be content with a 360 this time around. :D

I would like more free time and more sunlight. I would also like more difficult but ultimately resolvable personal situations, to aid in the hardening of my soul. I have been quite fortunate thus far with a number of "baby steps".

As far as material things go I would like a nice dress belt, a bunch of books, bourbon, and chocolate.

Maker's Mark makes for good drinking. It makes me feel toasty like a pop tart, but it's filling like pancakes. Perfect for breakfast!

We pretty much hibernate from the mainstream buying frenzy that has become the American Christmas.

We do the usual version as handed down to us yet adapted to "modern" times. Extra time with the family. Christmas tree. Candles on the windowsills. Singing carols around the tree with family and extended family present. Good home brew. Confections and cakes and pies and roast pork and potatoes. Little thoughtful gifts for all left by Julenisse.

And a journey to a traditional Catholic Midnight Mass. We love the chants, the incense, the Latin, the ritual.

Perhaps there is hope for us pagans yet.

Oh, and lest I forget, porridge left for Nisse. The women make it. I take it to the barn. I think the cats end up eating it, but that is allright. The cats help Nisse keep the barn free from mice and rats and snakes and things.

New pair of shoes I think, maybe some Vans or DCs to keep out the cold.

That, and someone in my general area to have a party so as I can skip out on the family stuff in the evening.

Nor do I. However, I don't even give out any cards either. Although my grandmother generally sends me a card for damn near every holiday throughout the year. :p

However, I might send out some new year cards a few days before the 25th as it is the Anglo-Saxon heathen new year. :D

If I were to ask for something though, I'd ask for a new record player. My old one broke. :(

Santa hasn't been in the drug-dealing business since the 60s so don't hold your breath on that one.

I do not want any xmas presents. I would rather be the giver, like an evil Santa bestowing the gift of fear and delivering poisoned fruitcakes. If I would take any gifts, it would be human souls, and maybe some real good head.

http://www.lewrockwell.com/vance/christmas-truce.jpg

The Christmas of 1914 was the first Christmas of the "war to end all wars." The war would drag on through three more. The German, French, Belgium, and British troops engaged in killing each other did not just all of a sudden lay down their arms because it was Christmas. Neither side had been "firing at mealtimes" and "friendly banter echoed across the lines." The soldiers in their trenches were sometimes so close to each other that "they would throw newspapers, weighted with a stone, across to each other, and sometimes a ration tin." In early December, a British general issued an order that forbade fraternization because "it discourages initiative in commanders, and destroys the offensive spirit in all ranks."

Yet, less than a week before Christmas, a British lieutenant wrote to his mother:

Some Germans came out and held up their hands and began to take in some of their wounded and so we ourselves immediately got out of our trenches and began bringing in our wounded also. The Germans then beckoned to us and a lot of us went over and talked to them and they helped us to bury our dead. This lasted the whole morning and I talked to several of them and I must say they seemed extraordinarily fine men. . . . It seemed too ironical for words. There, the night before we had been having a terrific battle and the morning after, there we were smoking their cigarettes and they smoking ours.

Brief and localized pre-holiday truces were springing up, usually initiated by the Germans. As Christmas Day approached, some German troops put up small Christmas trees on the parapets of their trenches. On Christmas Eve they began to sing Stille Nacht ("Silent Night"). Placards with Christmas greetings were set up by both sides. On Christmas Day, both sides buried their dead who had been lying in "No Man’s Land." They chatted, exchanged souvenirs, shook hands, ate and drank together, played football, had joint religious services, and smoked each other’s tobacco. They also took pictures.

No one knows for certain where and how the truce officially began. What is known is that men from both sides up and down the front agreed on informal truces for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. A Bavarian captain recalled that he shouted to his enemies that: "we didn’t wish to shoot and that we [should] make a Christmas truce. I said I would come from my side and we could speak with each other. First there was silence, then I shouted once more, invited them, and the British shouted ‘No shooting!’ Then a man came out of the[ir] trenches and I on my side did the same and so we came together and we shook hands – a bit cautiously!"

An English captain wrote to his wife:

I was in my dugout reading a paper and the mail was being dished out. It was reported that the Germans had lighted their trenches up all along the front. We had been calling to one another for some time Xmas wishes and other things. I went out and they shouted "no shooting" and then somehow the scene became a peaceful one. All our men got out of the trenches and sat on the parapet, the Germans did the same, and they talked to one another in English and broken English. I got on top of the trench and talked German and asked them to sing a German Volkslied, which they did, then our men sang quite well and each side clapped and cheered the other.

A Scottish corporal relates his experiences:

We shook hands, wished each other a Merry Xmas, and were soon conversing as if we had known each other for years. We were in front of their wire entanglements and surrounded by Germans – Fritz and I in the center talking, and Fritz occasionally translating to his friends what I was saying. We stood inside the circle like street-corner orators. Soon most of our company . . . hearing that I and some others had gone out, followed us; they called me "Fergie" in the Regiment, and to find out where I was in the darkness they kept calling out "Fergie." The Germans, thinking it was an English greeting, answered "Fergie." What a sight – little groups of Germans and British extending almost the length of our front! Out of the darkness we could hear laughter and see lighted matches. . . . Where they couldn’t talk the language they were making themselves understood by signs, and everyone seemed to be getting on nicely. Here we were laughing and chatting to men whom only a few hours before we were trying to kill!

That last sentence alone shows the utter folly of war. It also shows that left to themselves, men would not naturally engage in such a senseless war like World War I. It takes the state to get men to hate and kill other men that have never aggressed against them and that they don’t even know.
