A) Why do christians celebrate Christmas?
B) Because it is the day the birth of Jesus Christ is celebrated.
A) And why is that such a big deal?
B) Because it’s the birth of the savior.
A) Savior of what?
B) Humanity, he will save everyone from their wicked sins and sinful nature, this way you won’t burn in the excruciating torment of hell for all eternity, if you accept him and join us of course.
So basically, celebrate because despite the fact that you’re a rotten, worthless, horrible sinner that deserves only to burn in hell and suffer forever, Jesus has come to forgive you for whatever you have done (or haven’t done) and save you….
Well excuse me for not being so merry. You might want to go on a masochistic, self-hating guilt trip, but not me, no thank you! I’m a damn good person. I don’t need a system of rewards and punishment to make me care about my fellow human beings. I don’t need some eternal man in the sky looking over my shoulder all the time to make sure I do the right thing.
Go ahead, celebrate how little you think of yourself and all humanity has accomplished, I’ll pass.
