Winter Festivities... Bollocks!! It's Called "Christmas"!!
Ok then... I've just spent the last week getting so sick to death of the fact I can't call Christmas 'Christmas' It's not Christmas anymore, we have to be politically correct and call it "Winter Festivities" and they're not Christmas lights, they're "Seasonal Lighting" What bollocks... Like anyone's going to get offended because Christians celebrate their religious festival?

I live in Leicester at the moment, we just celebrated Diwali, Rammadan and Ede (Sorry if I spelled any of those wrong) nobody was offended by that, so why Christmas?

We in England have gone WAY TOO FAR on the political correctness we seem to dwell in. What's next? Banning the nativity in Schools? Oh, wait, they're already trying to do that... It's got obscene. I was so annoyed with this "you're not allowed to think for yourself any more, someone might get offended" attitude that we seem to be surrounded by that I went out and bought a wristband from The CPO Website

I'm sick to death of goodie-goodies telling me I'm not allowed to do/say or think this or that because someone might get offended, even though nobody actually does. I was not offended by the Asian-ness of Ede, Diwali and Rammadan, and no doubt, they don't care that we celebrate Christmas. I don't get offended by gay people talking about straight people, or telling jokes about us, and no doubt they don't mind when I do it, too... Obviously things can go too far, but it's stupid to curb the behaviuour of the majority to prevent the actions of a few.
Edit: I just thought I would add... I wonder how many kids got toy guns for Christmas... It's ok go glorify war/killing, but it's not OK to refer to Jesus in the name of one of our National Holidays... Pathetic!!
