Am new to this site and love it already
not sure if this is appropriate but i love
the idea,,am a member of a cocker spaniel
group and we do Christmas Card Lists for those
who are interested,,It is great to recieve cards
at Christmas from your new friends
you could just send a card
or include a Christmas "surprise" with your card
I thought that it sounded interesting,,
How about some thoughts from the rest?
Thanks
Tabatha

RE: Christmas Card List

HI. I'm doing this on the rose forum of gardenweb. They have been doing it for 3 years and they love it. There are about 25 people in it.

I would be interested in doing one on here too.

Christmas is for Christians. What about the Jewish, Hindus, muslums, Islamics, Bhuddists, Atheists, Brights, Mungs, etc...Now what? I find it amusing, that for some reason, Americans, in general, seem to think EVERYONE celebrates Christmas. Maybe some day we will pull our heads out of thesand and learn there are many wonderful cultures other than our own...

RE: Christmas Card List

Weebus, maybe Tabatha named it a "Christmas Card List" because the majority of Americans do celebrate Christmas.

And by the way, if someone doesn't want to join the Christmas card list exchange - they simply don't have to participate.

I happen to think it was a nice idea Tabatha.

Oh, I really am. These things really don't upset me. I just think it is important that people see both sides of the looking glass. More and more, it is becoming true that different cultures try to assimulate into our society, but unless they value what we value, they are left out.

RE: Christmas Card List

I originally did this because I myself love Christmas,,I have never celebrated any other holiday nor do I know that much about them,,so to want to celebrate something I know nothing of would be quite foolish,,this thread was for people interested in the same,,not started to offend any one. So if you see fit to celebrate another holiday then feel free to post, as I am not familiar to any of these---Jewish, Hindus, muslums, Islamics, Bhuddists, Atheists, Brights, Mungs,--sorry weebus,,but I can only make one person a day happy,,and it doesnt look like today is your day,,nor will it be tomorrow.
once again sorry

Don't be too upset, I don't look for you to make me happy. I am smart enough to know, only I can make myself happy, and I am quite practiced at it...

You are right, Tabatha. I think sending cards is a nice thing to do regardless what your religion is. In fact, I'm sending Weebus a cute Voodoo card.

Weebus, I'm waiting for your addy, babe.

RE: Christmas Card List

Tabatha,

I have had the great pleasure of chatting with you via email, and sending you packages!! Do not listen to all the foolishness above, execept for sweet Maureen, she is a dear. I think your idea is lovely and a wonderful way to thank the Wonderful GW members who have made our gardens so beautiful!!! You have a kind heart for thinking of this!!

Everyone else here please be so kind to this lady, she has a wonderful heart....and now is the season to be kind and giving, regardless of your faith. "Tis the season of Giving"

Blessings to you and a wonderful idea.

Kathy

Excluding an enormous part of our society doesn't seem too inclusive. No one said she isn't nice. No one on this thread said any one is unkind.

pointing out the fact that people are being left out doesn't seem to me to be unkind.

I would think that if someone pointed out to me that I need to broaden my horizons, and not leave people on the outside, but to include everyone, I would be appreciative of that person and think of them as truly kind.

Funny that you guys think because I pointed out the fact that there are others living among you, that I am a mean person. I find that rather twisted. I think I am just the opposite, kind enough to welcome everyone, not just those who suit my tastes.

RE: Christmas Card List

For crying out loud, yet another example of secular, political correctness absurdity.

Just for starters, I'm an atheist, but I could careless if you want to send Christmas cards, Hanukah cards, Ramadan cards, whatever. I could careless if someone sent any of the above to me, I figure it was nice of them to think of me. I could careless if you want to put a Christmas tree and a Hanukah display on the front lawn of City Hall too.

If you don't like a Christmas card list - DON'T PARTICIPATE - how is that for simple enough????? If you want to start your own "I hate Christmas cards" mailing list please feel free to do so. This is a free country please feel free to do whatever you want and leave others alone who you don't agree with.

If I decided to make a post that I was inviting people to attend a Florida Marlins baseball game, would I get the same stupid lecture that I'm offending New York Yankee fans?

BTW, don't forget to renew your ACLU membership, Christmas is coming and the ACLU will need plenty of money for absurd lawsuits.

WAY TO GO TABATHA!!!

You know If I wanted to read this much drama, I would watch Jerry Springer!! This conversation has gotten so absurd it is unbelievable!!!!! EVERYONE GIVE IT A REST!!!! AND WEBUS WE WILL ALL PRAY FOR YOU!!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERY ONE!!!!

P.S. Tabatha, block emails!!! Then you do not have to read half this garbage about a wonderful and thoughful idea you had. If Others do not participate in Christmas, then why do you others who do not agree even bother to post here, get a life and leave people alone!! GO VENT SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

Sorry folks. Although I find the comments amusing, now you see what we who live in the "blue" states have to deal with....comedy.... Such an innocuos thread meant to bring joy is twisted by the politically correct police. I guess I shouldn't complain. At least weebus left Christ in Christmas and didn't replace him with an X...... Weebus; does the significance of writing the date "2005" also offend you?

Ya'll are talking about a person with a chip on her shoulder the size of a small planet. Her posts are almost always mean-spirited and hateful, and it's pathetic to see how she feeds off the negative attention she causes to be heaped upon herself.

Knowing how she hates the South and those who call it home, I'll close with these words of wisdom for her: If'n ye ain't got nuthin' good to say about a body, keep yur mouth shut, gul.

Obviously Nelson you have no idea of who I am, nor do you know of who you speak. The maternal side of my family is from the south. spent plenty of time there, even attended HS there, so obviously you have no idea of what you are saying. So, I would take your own advice.

Speaking of 'ignernt' I woud sugest ya'll just let this thread die...

RE: Christmas Card List

Or what, Weebus? Will you try your best to spread bitterness and discord over the entire forum?

Been there, done that.
