Fireworks to a Christmas soundtrack. Sounds nice.

And the santa's red glare, the presents bursting in air. Gave through through the night, that our sled was still there.

Nope... But my birthday is next month and a lot of my family members have summer birthdays, so we have plenty of celebration between Christmases :)

Candy canes!! I always buy like 5 extra boxes and day them year round. I think that counts.

Good. Then I guess I do. I never really thought about it as a Christmas in July celebration. Do you have a Christmas in July tradition?

No, but I know people who do because it's easier to get together in the summer than Christmas. So they just exchange presents then.

Huh interesting. I was wondering how that would work for an atheist.

Christmas is fine. I just don't care for the birth of Jesus part.

Oh so you'll take the presents, you just won't go to church... Right?

Yes. But you're making it sound hypocritical. Let's be real, Christmas has evolved a ways away from Christianity. it's just another birthday for everyone to enjoy. But with giving as well, so it holds onto Christianity.

You can celebrate christmas without being Christian. As long as you just don't recognize the religious side.

First of all, we take French, it's oh là là. Second, I repeat, I. Don't. Care. I want the cane. Third, I'll tell you a secret. I don't really like them. I only like the flavored ones, like cherry or fruity. I don't care for peppermint.

Pipes I don't think this is gonna work out. Our friendship can't go on. I mean, peppermint candy canes are my life. If you can't accept the canes then you won't be able to accept me.

Oh but I just found a box of cherry ones in my dresser drawer, so we're all good. I like those too.

rlands

Sure, you can have the whole box. I don't like them as much as the mint ones. Oh and I just found my box of mini candy canes too.
