1142
Aww, I missed 1111.
I don't really get Christmas in the first place.
Why do we still celebrate in the middle of winter (not J's B-day), with a pagan tree ritual (♪deck the halls with immortal vines♫), with presents to each other (WTF, are we all supposed to be Jesus getting gifts or something?), when the christian religion is now accepted?

1143. Thus what brought on my question of how many people really, fully, take it for what it was originally meant to be.

1144. I've kinda reached the conclusion that it's all about the money. There's a hand full of people who still believe and celebrate. But for commerce, it's a huge deal. Hence the reason you hear about it before Halloween. For the church, I'll bet they pull in more money during Chrismas than any other time of the year except possible Easter. I believe Aaron hit it right on the head.

1145. Hear about it by Halloween? Every store around was almost fully decorated for Christmas by Halloween. We even have a neighbor who had her Halloween decorations taken down by the holiday ever got here. I wish I could just shove everything back into it's own time section. It's starting to get annoying.

1146. I feel the same way. My favorite radio station has gone to entirely Christmas broadcasting. I've quit listening to the radio on my way to and from work now.

1147. Ouch. I never really did get the full switch thing. I mean there are a lot of people who like holiday music, but if there is really that many people who stop wanting to listen to anything else for a month or so then that's really sad.

1148. I kinda get the feeling I'm in the minority around here. Bible belt and all that crap. People at least gotta pay lip service and look like they like everything that's goin on.

1150. Well, life has the potential to get better. Got a second interview with a local company. It's for a testing position, and from what they said in the first interview it'll have me working more with SQL and Visio. Both of which are areas of interest.

1152. I wouldn't complain. Should be better money and looks like an awesome company. Still small but has a nice product so will probably do quite a bit of growing.

1155. I imagine so. Hope you do get that other job and it works out for you. Though I guess I have to lessen that bit now. Seeing as if it's good enough it would bring the good job in hated place vs somewhere better to live decision, lol.

1156. Well..there is that, but I think I'd take the good job first. You can make due where ever, but a job you enjoy...that's rare.
