Sorry to hear that. Christmas is so much more than celebrating winter-what ever that means. Why can't you believe in God?

Why can't you just believe in Cthulu? Madness is so much more than just a chemical imbalance- whatever that means.

Do you have nay education whatsoever or do you intentionally try to screw up your grammar beyond all recognition? Your English teachers should slap the piss out of you for wasting their time.

You don't need to believe in such Deity unless you are celebrating the holiday. Because otherwise you are celebrating the birth of nobody. Which is moronic.
