I will make the conceivably ethnocentric claim that the greatest Xmas tradition is recognised in Australia. In the monsoonal tropical north, it is often marked by the commencement of the Wet Season, which means cooler temperatures, pleasant drizzle, and the first elevation to higher spirituality generated by one's favourite beer, or (of course) spirit. We are a very spiritual people.
In the southern climes, a visit to the local surf beach is a must, followed by engendered spirituality.
Nationally, Xmas day is observed by feigning ecstasy as the children discover their gifts under the Xmas tree, ussually around 5.30 AM. Bad parents go back to bed.
By 9 AM, the turkey must go in the oven, or whatever else is to be prepared for the 1 PM Xmas lunch, which is consumed sporadically over the next several days. Accompanied by more spirituality. The most popular food consumed is prawns, a recent logistics study discovering that the nation eats the equivelant to five olympic swimming pools in volume every Xmas,
And wouldn't you know it, Rolo, the WEF has funded a plot to destroy Xmas. This is in collaboration with Baptist, Methodist, and Catholic hierarchies who try to crush the Xmas spirit by outrageously renaming it 'Christmas' hoping, no doubt, to sow the seeds of religious wars. There are also WEF attacks through Muslims, who are demanding that age-old sacred symbols such as holly, striped peppermint walking sticks. and Xmas puddings be abandoned. They will fail. The sacredness of Xmas will never be violated by foul religion, and our holy communion with James Boag Premium Lager and Coopers Sacred Draught can never be despoiled.
In fact, I am at this moment absorbing prodigeous quantities of spirituality and I truly anticipate eventual sainthood and probably a shrine erected beside my esky on my passing from this vale of tears and fears. Adiu, comrades. Today we spiritualise to your good health.
Merry Christmas Rolo!!!
Here in South Texas there are Christmas lights everywhere, including many nativity scenes. There is even a neighborhood where almost every house puts up a crazy amount of lights and decorations. This year was one of the biggest yet!! Crowds of people flock to see the lights and a good time is had by all.
Merry Christmas Rolo and to the readers of these chronicles, from a cold and snowy Canada where there is no shortage of Christmas lights and decorations despite the best efforts of the corporste elites to 'cancel' Christmas.
I'm going to forward your article to my German wife who still carries a German passport and is a German citizen. She's all-in on the holiday, and does the food, the lights, and the music, much of whch we've seen gradually disappear.
This reminds me of the laughably small yidmas sections in stores when compared to all the Christmas ones. I also realized recently that since only 30% of black people celebrate Kwanzaa, 4% of the total US population celebrates Kwanzaa, which is more than the less than 2% that celebrate Hanukkah. So their ancient holiday getting beat by a fake holiday invented 60 years ago lmao

Oh Rolo. You have reduced me to tears of Xmas love and gratitude. That you, personally, recognise our national high priests, whom we dub "Men at work" for a devine purpose. It's... it's... overwhelming.
The Aboriginal people of Australia have joined me, led by the Yolngu clans, in thanking you for your acknowledgement. My phone rings sharply, again... and yet again... from Aussies across the nation to wish you a Merry Xmas and fucking heaps of Yukros and NATO bodies to drape across your sacred Xmas Tree.
Bravo Rolo, you have generously acknowledged the importance of Christmas in Europe especially. But I suspect it is the last vestige of western civ and when this goes we will know that crazy, dystopian GloboCap have won. It will then be time to nip across the border and join Eurasia.
I looked high and low to find some good news for my fellow compatriots so here it is, for whatever it might be worth!
Happy Christmas and Merry New Year!
“Irony of Fate” is an atrocious movie, totally unwatchable. The soundtrack is fantastic, but still not enough to justify a yearly tradition.
