The 12 days of Christmas

We have been quiet, trying to get ready, for Christmas!

You know, that celebration that is now so politically-correct that it cannot be mentioned by some governments across the world, including the United Kingdom.

Well, that is their loss. Season's Greetings indeed! How low can one go in the era of political correctness.

Imagine receiving a card that says this:-

A Politically Correct
Christmas Greeting

Best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most joyous traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, but with respect for the religious persuasion of others who choose to practice their own religion as well as those who choose not to practice a religion at all;

Additionally, a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the generally accepted calendar year 2000, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions have helped make our society great, without regard to the race, creed, color, religious, or sexual preferences of the wishes.

(Disclaimer: This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others and no responsibility for any unintended emotional stress these greetings may bring to those not caught up in the holiday spirit.)

Well, that would just kill it for us here at the Siber Party of Malaysia (M). We want to reclaim Christmas as the celebration to end all celebrations, bar New Year's of course!

In the pursuit of such lofty aims - and apart from drinking our way into 2007 - let us present to our loyal members, the following public service annoucement.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you guys too. I love the word Christmas and will probably say it a few hundred times between now and 2007. So to those who don't like the mention of "Christmas"... go dig a hole in the sand and stick your head in there :)

Thanks. We love the word too. We could say it forever just to celebrate and offend politically-correct dolts!

Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas ...

We love drinking too. So join us for a spiritual Christmas Eve in our parliamentary constituency!

Merry Christmas! The Jade Stalk awaits the Pearl in the Purple Mushroom!

Ah, Mydeen always likes Christmas. Lots of people comes to Mydeen's Mamak Shop after a robust round of Christmas binging. They like Mydeen's nasi kandar special, with imported Calvin Klein underwear some more.

Oh Mat Merah oi, we shall launch our parliamentary constituency and introduce our MP come Christmas Eve.

Done! At the usual teh-tarik stall or the unusual Church of the Poisoned Mind with Christmas Carols in the air?

Joy to the World!
The Lady is Come!

Merry Christmas!
