Thanks for giving God a good, swift kick in the pants while alive. Damn, I think the social I.Q. just dropped right after dude joined the ranks of the departed.

Hitchslap: The act that noted rational atheist Christopher Hitchens must employ on theologists when they attempt to enter discussions that require logic for proof and not "faith."

Oh, and fully agree with the guy. I use Christmas merely as an excuse to give presents to people I've been meaning to give them at other times. I just don't want to make them feel awkward, embarrassed, or obliged to reciprocate. I actually get a lot of fun out of hunting for the card, writing something peculiar or unique (hell, even practicing my script!), and including a small gift - a small token of my gratitude for their help throughout the year. This year, they were either gasoline cards or Starbucks cards. For real gifts, I always give a video or two (Criterion Collection, preferrably, which are the best quality videos around) :cool:

I also realise it's not good etiquette to give presents to some and ignore others, so I make sure to be really discrete about it, so as not to - again - make others feel awkward or embarrassed by my gesture :beatnik:
