Oh yeah, that ought to do it! That is going to build bridges between faiths alright. Bridges that they can then cross to reach the people of other faiths…and kick their heads in!

Why aren’t we having a Christmas tree this year Mummy?

Well little Johnny, you know what a Muslim is?… read more

    I will leave the same response here as I left on Shirin’s blog. You are all invited to Las Vages. It’s almost become a tradition here in US that most Persians now spend Christmas in Las Vegas. There are several Persian concerts over the weekend and you get great bargains, since most American would rather stay home and spend the time with their families. For some reason the Chinese had picked up that too.

    Oh England is even more Chrismasy than Montreal! from what I see.

    Homeyra, have you set the tree yet my friend? 😉

    I might have too… if so many are frustrated with the lack of festivities wherever they are 🙂
    What has happened to MTL?

    I heard that some military Einsteins in Iraq are trying to get Christmas toys for the Iraqi kids (as if it will make up for blowing up their parents). Is it even Christian to turn our kids into little materialist freaks who covet toys? And when I say “our kids”, I mean all kids everywhere. Why do humans think children need toys, that if they don’t have them, they are disadvantaged? Why don’t we have FOOD for Tots, instead of Toys for Tots? We’re all starkers.

    🙂 military Einsteins! lol, well… the whole thing must be consistent perhaps… not much room for Christian charity it seems.
