To wreck Christmas parties from Oak Park, Il and beyond

I found some stuff that will help bring cheer or freak out the residents of Oak Park. Il during the Christmas season like the legend of Krampus to the original A Christmas Carol movie, I plan to add this to the free E-books on the season and making Holiday crafts that I found online I am going to add it all together to make everyone at the holiday party crazy.

Because all they want to do is talk and shit and sit around with kids running around up your ass, plus they don’t want to have strong drinks like tequila “because of the kids” but tell you that while holding a glass of wine. (((SIGH)))

This little bit of information will freak the kids screwing up their minds forever:

Santa’s Horned Helper: The Fearsome Legend of Krampus, Christmas Punisher http://www.ancient-origins.net/myths-legends/santa-s-horned-helper-fearsome-legend-krampus-christmas-punisher-004799

OR you can do the video thing from YouTube for those kids with ADHD:

The Life and Times of Krampus by Andreas Ziebart which explains the whole legend https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlSa922DgNY

This is the link to a Christmas classic movie of the Charles Dickens novel called “A Christmas Carol” but add this with the Krampus stuff, and you will have the kids paranoid for next year! Nothing like putting a little terror in their hearts.

Happy Christmas Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve from Oak Park, Il blog!

One of the things my family use to do on Christmas Eve was that we open at least one gift on Christmas Eve. I mention this because I really can’t have my family come over due to all the land mines my neighbor’s like to have their dogs plant into the snow on the sidewalk.

Now I just have to wait until Christmas day to exchange presents and open them but at least my shoes will be clean! So happy Christmas Eve people!

Christmas in Oak Park, IL part 2

Did you know that Christmas was not always celebrated on December 25th? Maybe that Christmas is celebrated 13 days after the 25th, in the Greek and Russian orthodox churches? Charles Dicken’s created A Christmas Carol to illustrate the need for charity and good will during the Christmas season. However, it was America that brought upon the changes in the holiday as we presently know it after it was made a national holiday in the late 1800’s. I must admit I had to look at the link below to learn some of these facts about Christmas, as I am not always perfect but this was a great learning experience. The history channel’s website is a fantastic resource for article with Christmas information, videos about, pictures, speeches about the holidays along with other Christmas related information and items. I hope this helps increase the basic religious and cultural intelligence of the residents of Oak Park, IL so that they do not think because they are just putting up lights and going to church finally for annual visit means that they are exhibiting the spirit of Christmas. There is actually a lot more to it, although they are a lot of shallow individuals in this village that always put up a fake front of being “decent” people. I hope that learning more about the holiday will edge them closer to the practice of actually being that individual.

Christmas in Oak Park, Il part 1

Christmas in Oak Park, Il should bring out the best of people, the good Christian people of Oak Park, Il who do not celebrate that many other holidays, that do not have the cultural intelligence to celebrate or accept other cultural based holidays. This also leads to a basic ignorance of the real meaning of Christmas accepting what is culturally acceptable, meaning, the more commercial side of the holiday. Getting back to the basics of this Christian holiday, it is all about the birth of Jesus, yet we take away from it there is a standard of mandatory gift giving.

Giving gifts is the “be all end all” for this holiday now, and children everywhere expect a gift upon this holiday, Greed instead of generosity has replaced the mainstream message of this holiday, Christmas has become more of a corporate holiday than a religious one although it is very similar to Diwali. The holiday of Christmas no matter what the denomination has as it, a foundation of giving and selflessness not of wish lists and the force fraternizations with everyone and their mother. However, I am hopeful there are people in Oak Park, IL who do still grasp upon the original Christian beliefs of Christmas and still give of themselves as per those religious beliefs. To help understand better this famous and misconstrued holiday I have set up in this post a couple of links that discuss the customs of Christmas and includes for a countdown clock to Christmas.

This is a website that details different customs for the Christmas holiday: http://www.whychristmas.com/customs/

I have added a website here that may add to the Christmas for the kids: http://www.xmasclock.com/
