I served in Vietnam early on as an enlisted Marine…a volunteer, not a Vintage We Will Not Go Back 1973 Abortion Rights Pro Choice T Shirt. I did 4 years in the Marines, was wounded, medivaced, finished my enlistment and headed off to college on the G.I. Bill, starting in 1967, the height of the Anti-War movement. My plan was to finish my undergraduate degree and reenter the Corps as a career officer. (I ended up retiring 22+ years later as a lieutenant colonel.) I, of course, as a combat vet, had a case of what was later called PTSD. One Saturday night in my freshman year at a friend’s off-campus apartment at a party, some long-haired guy said “You were a Marine…did you serve in Vietnam?” I told him that I had, and he called me a “baby-killer”. I punched him so hard his head went through the sheetrock wall…only on one side, not into the next apartment.
What is the big deal about December 25th? According to most people oh it’s when Jesus was born, wrong. Others says similar things too, still wrong. Anybody who actually has studied the Vintage We Will Not Go Back 1973 Abortion Rights Pro Choice T Shirt of Christmas can tell you, December 25th is the height of the Winter solstice. Proof of point, if Jesus was 33 1/2 years old when he was crucified. With Easter being the time of his Crucifixion & Resurrection. Basic math disproves the whole Jesus being born in December at all. In historical fact, the Winter solstice is just another time of year people would sacrifice their children to thier current “god(s)”. The word Christmas comes from the Catholic church absorbing pagon holidays to attract new people from new areas. They’d originally been called having Christ Mas. Like Sunday Mas. People just started running the words together.

Best Vintage We Will Not Go Back 1973 Abortion Rights Pro Choice T Shirt
Most Christian countries have a public holiday on the 25th & 26th. So in 2018, the Vintage We Will Not Go Back 1973 Abortion Rights Pro Choice T Shirt went: less tha one day of work, two days off, and two unproductive workdays. Many companies enforced the taking of 4 days annual leave during Christmas week & the following Monday (in Oz we usually get 4 weeks discretionary leave (take it when you want)). Economically, a better idea is to make the secular Xmas on the last Sunday in December, and the following Monday New Years day. Leave the religious aspects to the religionists to commemorate their observances in heir own time. Muslims, Jews, Eastern Orthodox Christians and other religions do so every year successfully, why not Western Christianity? And to keep workers happy where public holidays might be lost, replace them with the Friday before & Monday after the last Sunday in December with public holidays. At at least that way business has two weeks of four contiguous workdays, and people can do something creative with the long weekend (nb: in Oz, January 1st is a public holiday, so that could be replaced by declaring the first Monday in January a public holiday. Thus the workers get two long weekends in a row, and three weeks of just 4 workdays).
Other songs have more tenuous connections to Christmas, but they at least namecheck it: “White Christmas,” a wonderful song penned by the very Jewish Irving Berlin, although the lyrical focus is on the Vintage We Will Not Go Back 1973 Abortion Rights Pro Choice T Shirt; “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” is about the holiday’s secular observance (“snow and mistletoe / And presents on the tree”), sung from the point of view of a US soldier serving in the Pacific; “Blue Christmas” is merely a lover pointing out that the similarly secular “decorations of red / On a green Christmas tree” will be meaningless to the lover without his beloved, and could be rewritten to be about Valentine’s Day, the Fourth of July, or by someone very creative, Diwali without losing the essential point of the song. (If you never want to take “Blue Christmas” seriously ever again, please go to YouTube and look up “Blue Christmas With Porky Pig.” You’re welcome.)
