Christmas means a lot of different things to a lot of people. It’s a time where Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus. I’m talking Jesus of Nazereth, not Jesus the grass cutter from Juarez! Others find it a time to reflect on the past year and be grateful for their accomplishments. Yet others may prefer to spend time with family and friends relaxing. Jewish people celebrate Hannukah..whatever the hell that is. Muslims enjoy blowing up as many people as they can. Just like every other day of the year.
AWD doesn’t pay much attention to Christmas until it arrives. I mean really arrives. Like in December 25th. Not when stores want you to think it arrives….which is pretty much after the 4th of July. Not that I’m a Scrooge, AWD likes to clasp his loved ones to his bosom and relax. But Christmas is for kids. And mine are pretty much spread out all over the place this year so its not going to not be the same. So I’ll have to find some other Christmasy things to do. Maybe hog hunting.
One damn tradition that AWD will not participate in is the donning of gay apparel. I don’t even think I have any clothing that could be considered gay! Most of what I have is camo. Leave the donning of the gay stuff to those sensitive guys in Nueva Jork and San Francisco….and Austin who like to look at pillows up close. As with other things, too…if you know what I mean. I’m thinking Barney Fwank.
