Happy Holidays
« on: December 24, 2010, 01:54:58 AM »

'T is the season, and I would like to wish all of you here a merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule, (not placed in any order) or whatever else you or your race celebrates. :)

Those actually seem to be placed in the order of popularity, descending, and probably just the order you thought of them. I take no offense.

Hanukkah was like two weeks ago, no one celebrates Kwanzaa, and I have never heard of Yule.  On Chirstmas Eve, just say "Merry Christmas".

Ducky is using in an attempt to contradict Buggy's old sig. But Yule actually refers to the Christmas Season.

That doesn't matter, it's still a pretty unsavory thing to say.

How is that mean?
Do you know anyone how celebrates Kwanzaa? Even if you say yes, I won't believe you.

Kwanzaa was only created, because black nationalist didn't want to celebrate Christmas, because they associated Christmas with white people.  It is hard to respect a holiday created for the sole purpose of seperating Americans based on race.

Be that as it may, that doesn't mean it's wrong for African-Americans to celebrate it, now, I'm not changing my first post and erasing Kwanzaa, so let's drop this, shall we?

Yule is the original pagan holiday that Christians took over, and renamed as the festival of the Nativity, or equated with it. Purists from Germanic regions, neopagans, and Christians celebrate Yule.

Ever heard of a BŻche de NoŽl? "Yule Log".

Ever heard anything NoŽl? NoŽl = Yule.

True, and according to most religious historians Jesus Christ was actually born in late spring. Christmas was celebrated first in the winter because it coincided with Yule.

Actually, Ducky, if you translate "NoŽl" from it's original French into English it means "Christmas".

Who told you that one?

Go to Google Translate.

Go to translate.reference.com

Go to a French-English dictionary NOT printed by Americans.

BŻche de NoŽl DIRECTLY translates to "Yule Log", or "Log of Yule".

The adoption of the term NoŽl as meaning Christmas only can along later.
