Christmas is coming, and I had a question that wanted to ask for a long time already, you guys do noticed the word Christmas got a word "Christ", right? Then this started to think about this question.

The Christmas Day is the day of Lord Jesus' birth day, right? So I expected only Christians will celebrate this day, but why the other such like Muslims, Hindu, Buddha also both celebrate this day together? I'm not sure did the other races celebrate this, because I'm in Malaysia and most Malaysians celebrate this day.

Hi ST6

Even Easter was celebrated before Christ , better said during His life on Earth.The Lord's Supper that inspired the painting too He and His apostles celebrated it at Easter
These were celebrations that existed before His time , i'm assuming they were based on Moses's teachings.Before Lord Jesus , the laws of prophet Moses were in place

I may not be too accurate but it's what i know

Christmas and Easter are christian celebrations but not Haloween , Thanksgiving or Black Friday and out of these only Thanksgiving is a mild one but they are not christian , actually the other two are infact pagan and i'm never celebrating them even though i could

Just as a side note i felt pointing out , i hope no one minds it

For instance in Orthodoxy we don't only celebrate the worldwide known christian holidays but also nearly everyday there is a saint to be honored and celebrated.It's a lot more thourough for us

I only remain asking what's your religion ?

Although i would never condone change of religion because i'm of the belief that one should stick with the religion they got born into , no matter what religion that is , as a christian i appreciate your choice

Welcome to Christianity ST6

And i have to say that there are people that convert from christianity to buddhism too

That's sad to hear, the reason why I converted myself to Christian is because: An accident. After that, I took some time and think: What did the Buddhist gods done to us? I felt like we're just worshiping them for nothing, so that's why

Just gonna interject myself here, but happy to hear you did ST6.

I'm happy when one does find Christ. Of course people are entitled to their own beliefs but it's good when one finally sees the truth. Your salvation depend on it.

It's best when you allow your beliefs to be brought into question. Because you've shown an open mind instead of being overly dogmatic. When confronted with pain, sorrow, and challenges of course being dogmatic is your course to take. But when life presents you with situations that bring to question everything you stand for, then there is time to take an account, take measure so to speak of where it is you should really stand. It's upon this basis character is built and people change.

Catch is those changes can happen even daily. I'm not the same guy I was months ago, nor even years. Life is funny like that, continually brings new endeavors daily.

Also, AnYnA.

This is why I celebrate Thanksgiving.
Christiananswers.net

It's not just an American holiday though. Why? Because, I don't see the harm in having a holiday where Christians can give thanks for what it is they got. To be frank most holidays these days seem to be more pagan thanks to consumerism and mass media, especially Christmas. As for Easter Ive even heard that Easter had to do with the pagan season of fertility. Even though for Christians we just consider it a time to remember when Christ rose.

Buddhism is not a religion of worship and the gods , it is a religion of spirituality , of the soul , of peace and of the martial arts
If these things don't ring appealing to someone then surely Buddhism is not for that person

It's good that you felt the call to Christianity ( btw what accident if you wanna share ? ) and you are happy with your choice
Christianity is not an easy religion or cross to bear but it's fulfilling and has many good sides in it

And why sad ? I heard or read about people that change religion all the time just for the kicks or just to boast around ( mostly famous people i heard doing this ) and in the end they are people of no god and no religion.They just play with them and religion is not a thing one to play with.In this sense i meant it
On the other hand i also do not condone forceful conversion to another religion ( cough cough ! like it happens with some people of Islam ) because one must choose themselves only at their own will whether to change their belief system or not but not on the extreme of changing it all the time

Once again ,if you are happy with your choice is all that matters ST6

Thanksgiving is just american only for americans and you cook turkey and there's a family reunion
This is sweet and nice and i always liked this celebration at you but unless you're living in USA or better being an american yourself , is pointless to celebrate this because it's a patriotic celebration specific to USA

Christmas is the birth of Lord Jesus and Easter is His ressurection.In Orthodoxy there is one after this called the ( might be a bad translation ) The departure of Jesus to the heavens celebrating when He left the apostles behind while He ascended to the Heavens after 40 days of spending time with them since His rebirth.And this celebration is of course celebrated 40 days after Easter

So , i got nothing against Thanksgiving but i never liked Haloween or Black Friday.Those are definitely not christian and even have a touch of devilry ( i'm sorry to be the cleric purist type here ) and for a while by now they are celebrated in Europe too but were first celebrated in the USA.

But of course , whatever floats one's boat.For my part anyone is free to celebrate or not celebrate anything they wish
I mean if i would find an ancient celebration for the egyptian godess Hathor of fertility and crops i would be free to celebrate it , right ? even if it would be just me doing it

Celebrations are fun

Meh, Canada also celebrates it so I wouldn't call it just American.
I prefer to just look at as a day, as a reminder to be thankful.

What doesn't have a touch of devilry these days?
I see it everywhere in governments and societies.

Yeah.

Thank you for appreciating my freedom of choice to celebrate something
I thought i was gonna met with furious critics regarding my example of celebrating godess Hathor of fertility and crops

You , sir , Trademark is respectful to me and i appreciate this
It feels nice to talk here again nonetheless

Just that as a christian myself i feel endorsed to say in conclusion that the true way towards Life and Freedom is Lord Jesus Christ.If there are other ways aside from Him given to you by God , then you can only name yourself a very blessed person

It's your choice. I personally would just ignore it though.

To be honest since my mother died me and my dad have a hard time even celebrating days like Christmas. It's just, instead of joyous or reliving it is painful and bittersweet. Like having a rose, you see its beauty but when you go to pick it up all you feel is the thorns digging in and drawing blood from you. I dunno, perhaps I just gotta move on at some point. To what to move on too though is the question.

You're welcome.

If it means anything, I'm sorry by the way.

I don't celebrate them either , you know because they lost all atmosphere and cosyness that used to be when i was a child

My parents are far from me in space not in time because they still live and...they sort of don't care much about me but it's cool being this way because i'm a big girl now and i can take care of myself but in the same time this renders me ( like always ) a lone she wolf that parties alone , drinks alone ( kinda happens quite much like Butch's mom from Fallout 3 hahah ) and dines alone.I sometimes even wear something more fancy that normally would involve a date but it ends up with just me raising a glass for me only like Diane Mc Clintock of Bioshock 1

Maybe i am insane or a witch already and i haven't even realised it.I'm not sure where all of this is going to turn to

I really love all animals but i'm not at all into having pets so i'll most likely never get cats , i even dislike the fact that everyone gets them and talks about it but if they help them feel better it must be good.I only dread the thought when people start losing their minds and hurt the pets.I could not stand such a thing.Ugghh ! Better not think about it

Lately i'm playing Borderlands and Fallout 4 in paralel and they take up a lot of my time and it's so fun

You know if i stay off gaming i would end up talking with myself alone in the house with lights off and then crying maybe or laughing hysterically

I haven't yet started to smoke pot , i just drink a lot but maybe i'll start that too

So you see , it's not easy living in this world that cares less for you , like i'd need the world to care about me anyway but screw it !

Screw those guys ! like Claptrap from Borderlands says hahahah

Let us celebrate death , the wars , the world's situation and the end of days to come , better , people !
These are gonna be the biggest things around anyhow

I'm sorry if i related stuff about me but i felt i should , encouraged by the fact that you done so too.I suppose it must release some inner tension when you let go of stuff inside and talk about your life...still trying to understand this thing...as if you go to a psychiatrist and talk about you sort of thing.
Anyway it happens extremely rare because i was always a person on the belief that your personal life , feelings and such should remain unsaid

Not sure what else other than games helps with depression.Music i would name for one , then going out and spending time in a place without people like the woods , long walks in your city at the night , watching the clear night sky and the practice of sports.Also writing helps and anything that keeps you busy
It won't help your psyche neither your stability of emotional levels if all you do all the time is not take care of yourself ( i'm speaking this generally meaning everyone ) and just listen news , read newspapers and worry , worry , worry about world's situation.

Screw those guys , better ! and take some time for yourself too.So , even if you don't have a perfect family or a christmas tree or a date for New Year's Eve just take these days and fill them only with an activity you know you like and enjoy.It's not gonna work wonders but it will help you survive emotionally.

As for others that have all means of celebrating the way holidays are meant to be celebrated with parties , dinners in two and such , by all means do it and raise a glass in honor for those people that don't too.

My perfect holidays would be something along the lines of spending them in two only with a lover , going out to a cosy place then home making the xmas tree and such and then a lot of love.Ah yeah and i would surely wanna go skating in two as well.I skated when i was little and loved it but now i would love it if i would go skate with my lover like in those romantic movies.Also fights with snow are fun too.I think these things would fill my heart for the holidays.

I remain wondering what you and what other people would wish for their dream holidays

Don't know how to necessarily explain it without having everyone here prod into the deepest recesses of my mind but I feel much the same. Between if anything else to do, laughing hysterically and talking to myself. It's how I feel when I go to bed too.

I dunno if it's a defense mechanism or something, but now I just imagine things that aren't there all to give me some comfort. After all the blows me and my dad took I don't even feel I can be accepted anymore among those I should be able to call brothers and sisters. At least in the church. I mean sure, some people here on moddb are nice but if they all knew my past and heard what was heard about me I do question if they'd even consider me worth hanging around anymore, or me being "trustworthy". It's amazing how fast people can turn on you.

I guess that drove me to a very dark place, because I feel more at home in the dens of monsters and demons then I do among those I should be able to call "friends", at least in spirit. Life does that I guess, but the thing is that treatment that drove me to that place is what drove my mother insane in her last days and ultimately killed her with the cancer. As well as forced me and my dad to leave our home in shame.

I guess I just gotta thank God me and him are still here.

I may dwell with monsters and demons from a certain point of view, but I remember who was there when I needed Him. Perhaps that's the one person who has kept me from going totally mad. After what Ive been through I don't have a hard time understanding how one could slit their own throat or just allow themselves to slip into the madness, become a monster.

Yeah, music and keeping busy helps. It's why I keep trying stuff to occupy my mind along with games, and like listening to hymns, battle marches, etc. It's like Space Marines would say, heresy grows from idleness, so best keep busy.

Agree.

If I could find that one special person, who would get me and I her. I'd probably give everything short of my own soul for her. I really stopped caring about being accepted after what me and my parents went through with those we were supposed to be able to call friends. But if there's anything Ive learned, it's that having that one special person in your life can keep you from going over the isthmus of insanity. She could be hated by everyone but if I loved her that would be all that mattered to me.

Not much different from you, honestly. My idea of a real holiday is spending it with that one person. Otherwise I just don't deem it worth celebrating. Kinda reminds of this song, someone to care for, to be there for. And yes, it's cheezy.

I can see why Christ stressed love to such a point.
Without it one just feels like withering away.

Quite a drama you speak about , sir Trademark but you see , speaking out about yourself and crying about your life's pains can be problematic

For once every person out there that unite on this site has their own problems and almost every person always thinks their own problems are the biggest and most important , which is of course understandable

Secondly speaking , many people are using the " i don't care " concept and nothing more can be done here

I would say that trying to talk again about these things will not fix these issues we are met with more or less.You see , sometimes in life we end up doing worse when we insist with the same method and no matter if we push it and push it , we can be met with an equal rejecting force every time.The key is another approach altogether

I can say that i listen and care because i used to know you in the recent past , sir Trademark but let me see how many people from here care about you and offer you a good word of support , other than your best friend Kim

You see , Joshua , i opened myself up too but i'm not expecting a thing to be comforted at all , at no times.I feel better comforting others than i ever felt good at being comforted myself.I'm really bad at being in the role of being comforted i suppose

I hope God will help you turn out all things right for you is all i can say - you are obviously pained by something that digs deep inside your soul and your life but i would steer clear of demons and monsters except if you mean those found in games

We all desire that special someone but we don't realise that there's no perfect partner to be had.This is more like that saying : if you want a good friend be a good friend first

There has to be a sweet gal in all Nevada that will fill your life with love and presence and everything , Joshua
Just a matter of time until you find her or she finds you i bet

Yeah " Love one another ! " Lord Jesus said but i think we are not doing it right for certain or like Mother Theresa the prophetess said " There are more people hungry for affection than hungry of food in the world "

In conclusion this is the story of these times , of the " glorious " 21'st century , for you

Cannot wait to get back in 3015 AD , i miss my kitchen where i used to fix lots of amazing lunches while staring at the mega city outside and a massive arch in the distance could be seen from my window under which trails of hover cars pass by everyday hahah

Sorry ! I forgot that i'm still here ! In our days terms it means that i have lost my minds to utopia and dreams of beautiful realities ! It's my secret non-secret of resistance against the Fall of Humankind like the game Resistance Fall of Man

PS : If someone finds me standing under mistletoe they can have a kiss for Xmas from me

Kisses for free for everyone !

I know, which is why I often keep it to myself. But like I encouraged you to speak up, you did the same for me. I'll leave it at that though.

Agreed, there are those out there who have suffered far worse than either of us, still it has effects on one's soul regardless. As people will always be susceptible to that.

There are good people here, that I know. The issue is just, that I know they'd view me very differently if they knew all of my past. As we both know, people can be very judgmental, critical. Ive been that way myself, and now I feel regretful over it.

I feel better to receive comfort and give it in return.
Nonetheless I do try and be supportive to people regardless.

It's more of a expression, but yeah I should steer clear of them.

Someday hopefully.

I'd take that quote as gospel.

Alright, see you later. :-)

The idea is to let go of the demons the past like one of Spellforce 2's expansions is called and dare , dare.Truth or dare is the game we have to play once and again.

You must dare re-start the engines of the ship afloat that is called your Life and sail out in the open sea again and see what you can find and sometimes we might even reach a dream come true
