Merry Christmas - My 10 Gripes Of Christmas

After two years and three Christmas seasons, the R2G is stronger and better than ever. On this Christmas Day, I sit here to reflect back on this holiday season and am thankful for many things. However, there have been a few things that have stuck in my craw over this holiday which have really ticked me off. Of course, I have decided to compile them to come up with my 10 Gripes Of Christmas.
10. Happy Holidays: I am sick and tired of being politically correct! As far as I am concerned it is Merry Christmas and NOT Happy Holidays! If you are Jewish, then Happy Hanukkah and so on and so forth. Lets not lump it all into one big retail raping of the public.

9. Shopping Brawls: Throughout this Christmas season, we have seen numerous store brawls on the news. These morons that fight over certain retail items have done so from coast to coast. More arrests were made this year than ever over retail may-lays. Common people, this is the season to be jolly, not the season to land a right cross.

8. Lexus Commercials: I know I have Griped about this before, but I just can't take it anymore. Every other commercial on the idiot box is people getting a Lexus for Christmas. ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME! Do you know anyone who got a Lexus. I know I didn't! If you do, I want to know who it is. Cut us a break and quit insulting our intelligence.

7. Commercials: Speaking of Christmas commercials, I know I was stunned when I saw my first one the day after Halloween. Every year it gets earlier and earlier. By the time Christmas Day comes you have had enough. You just want to crawl under a rock and pray for it to be over. Don't get me wrong here, I love Christmas. However, it is being kicked right in the jingle bells by the retail sector. Its time we all put a stop to this before Christmas is ruined.

6. Christmas Songs: First off, a big R2G 2 thumbs up goes to Magic 93 for playing Christmas Songs over the past few weeks. No other lame channel on the FM dial did so. The only Gripe I have is that Christmas Night at 6pm, the Christmas Songs will end. Whatever happened to playing them right through until New Years Day. I guess the retail world has sent down the edict that it is over at 6pm on Christmas Day.

5. The Yule Log: What ever happened to the Yule Log on TV? I remember sitting down after putting all the gifts under the tree, sipping a glass of wine and watching the Yule Log. I could not find it anywhere this year. I have Direct TV and it appeared to be absent. Now mind you, I did not go through all 857 channels of nothing that I get.

4. No Snow: When was the last time we had a white Christmas? Now I am talking a plow-able snow that makes the town like a Christmas card. I'll tell you. The last major snow that we had for Christmas was in 1969. Three days before Christmas, the Freeze Miser dropped 12.2 inches of snow on the Greater Wilkes-Barre Area. Whatever happened to some snow on Christmas. Can you say GLOBAL WARMING?

3. X-Mas: I can tell you I just don't like it! It's Christmas, not X-Mas. This is the lazy ass way for spelling out the greatest holiday known to mankind. Us Americans have become lazy sons of bitches who want to get as little done in as quick a time as we can. It's CHRISTMAS!

2. Christmas Spirit: It seems that there is less and less every year. Hell, where I work our main office building didn't even have a Christmas Tree. That is pathetic! The company gave their employees squat for Christmas. I know times are tight, but common! Throw something our way. We used to have a Christmas party, but that went by the way of the South Pole last year. Merry Freakin' Christmas you bastards!

1. Justin Bieber: What does he have to do with Christmas? Let me tell you. I actually heard a classic Christmas song butchered by "The Bieb" on the radio. It may have been the worst rendition of a Christmas song I have ever heard. "The Bieb" should be forbidden by law to sing Christmas songs.

There you have it, my 10 Gripes Of Christmas. I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year....Keep On Griping!

  1. We had a big snow storm 6-7 years back I think. So much that I had to shovel what was plowed in front of my driveway just to get in it.
