Festivus, for the rest of us...

How ironic that just by publishing a list of RETAILERS that they acknowledge the fact that the REASON behind the season is actually $$$$...bunch of hypocrites indeed...

I think those retailers who actually do not decorate and try to sell STUFF are more true to the season, as it were...since when did buying stuff contribute to the reason for the season?

Sure a lot of warped thinking out there...

It's been awhile! I missed you. I take it that you, unlike me, have a life?

@altschmerz hey there! So much going on...wrapping up my company for retiring, moving, surgeries, etc. yeah, life in general kept me hopping, but, things are settling down so I can be online more...I missed the banter and thoughtful commentary of this place...so many interesting people...I welcome a bit more calm! Good to see you posting good stuff!!!!

Saturnalia all the way!

Good! I need a list of stores to boycott or call to say I’ll take my business elsewhere if they don’t stop with the christian bullshit! It’s winter solstice that we are celebrating and not some crazy virgin birth myth.

I'm all for being atheist but let's not shoot ourselves in the foot!

Christmas forever!

Saturnalia forever!

Absolutely. Winter's a drag!

I have to agree with them on Bronner's. It doesn't really matter what your stance is on religion when you walk into that store. There's something magical about it.

Their list though, completely stupid and unnecessary. What a dumb premise.

Never heard of Bronner’s. I wonder if there’s one in my area!

EDIT: There’s only one store in Michigan. Ah well. 🙂

@altschmerz I grew up in Michigan, but I've only been twice and once was after I had moved out of state. I've been wanting to visit again recently if you're interested. 😂

@Kynlei it would have to be after Christmas – family in town. 🙂

@altschmerz Oh yeah. Super busy time of year.

The war on Christmas is over, Walmart and Amazon won
