Quote from: Tom Cruise
You may think you know about Christmas, but you don't know Christmas like I do! It's an alien conspiracy! *spaz*



I just tell them to have a 'nice diurnal anomaly,' and by the time they figure out what that means, I'm long gone.

I like Happy Chanukkah, not ch like chalk, but that sound like you're trying to clear your throat.  Or start singing Adam Sandler's Hannukah Song.

Some people think, that Ebenezor Scrooge is,
Well, he's not but guess who is
All 3 Stooges

What I usually do is completely ignore it, treat this like anay other day unless someone says something.  

As far as I have been able to figure out, Kwanzaa is a cross between traditional African(possibly slave, not sure how far back the traditions go)celebrations, Christmas and Hannukkah.  The celebrations go for, I think 8 days.  There are presents, but there is also a theme of family and responsibility.  Let's keep in mind I got this from Elmo's holiday special  :lol: The show had Christmas, Hanukah, and Kwanzaa and I think there may have been something else.

Virgin Mobile has some weirdo holiday thing, Chrismahanukwanzakah, or something.  If it was easier to say, I would be using that  :lol:

This is the correct answer.

Won't let himself hope, though.

Boxing day is not celebrated in America(tm).

We NEED Guy Fawkes day, though.

We NEED Guy Fawkes day, though.


Nov 5th 2006 - 1st ever Guy Fawkes in Connecticut!

I discussed this with Mrs Mang'. She doesn't care much for July 4th and Guy Fawkes in America is just surreal.

n00b: Mang? Why are ya lettin' off fire crackers in November?
Mang: Well, funny you should ask.
n00b: I am asking.
Mang: You see n00b, I'm letting off these fireworks to celebrate the day that a conspiracy to blow up the King and the British government was foiled.
n00b: And?
Mang: And we set off fireworks and burn effigies of the poor Spanish Catholic schmuck who copped all the blame.
What makes it so? Making it so is what makes it so.
