It's freakin' Christmas, why does every channel have a horror movie on?

    So I'm flipping channels, expecting some decent Christmas movies to be on. What do I find? ALL scary movies:

    Boogeyman
    Cabin Fever
    Sister Act II :eek:

    and finally...

    An Inconvenient Truth. Nothing's scarier than Al Gore and his graphs and charts, except for that awful Melissa Etheridge song they play in the movie. *shudders*

    But seriously, how am I supposed to get into the Christmas spirit when shit like this is on TV instead of the Grinch, Rudolph, and that damned little bastard Ralphie? Right now I'd settle for Tim Allen in a Santa suit. Geez.

    Do you remember when there was almost a schedule of CHristmas favorites? I seriously considered buying a "classic Christmas movie" disc for like $30 because I haven't had my Rudolph fix yet. DAMMIT~!

    Christmas IS a horror show, why not play appropriate movies for it?

    How many days of the week for a month can we watch It's a Wonderful Life or the Miracle on 34th Street?

    You are aware December 25th is NOT Jesus's Birthday? Right? It is a crass consumer holiday from hell.

    Further, go ahead and provide us with some kernel from the Bible where Jesus ask us to remember his Birthday to begin with. If I had to guess I would guess late October as when he was Born based on what I have been told of the climate in that part of the world and the events around his birth.

    This is the epidome of preaching to the choir.

    I'm well aware of the misrepresentation that is the Xmas holiday. It's actually refreshing to see a christian not only acknowledge it, but be just as annoyed about the consumerism aspect as I am.
