First of all, I only read about half a dozen of the posts, so I don't know what everybody else has said, but besides agreeing that not everyone is a christian and celebrates Christmas, I'd like to point out that not everybody who is a christian has a place to go to on Christmas eve or Christmas day! I spent one year living in Cleveland, away from my family in Indiana. I had a room, no place to cook, and relied on restaurants and fast food joints for my meals. I was not old enough to (legally) hang out in a neighborhood bar, and was damn glad that there was a fast food joint open to get something to eat and to hang out with a few other poor people who didn't have homes to go to either. I did NOT consider it "corporate greed" on the part of the restaurant! And that isn't the only time I've been alone on a Christmas eve or a Christmas day! But by then, I was old enough to go to a bar and I was damn glad there was a local one open!
People don't stop dying on Christmas and its nice to be able to grab a double cheeseburger during down time. Personally I'm happy to see some places open on holidays.
"Like all Jews, I was probably at a Chinese restaurant." Kagan's fellow New Yorker Senator Chuck Schumer then jumped in to explain: "Those are the only restaurants that are open!"
They've got kosher Chinese restaurants?
Good......sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and go get a 10 piece nuggets and fries w/large Coke. Then I eat it at my dinner table next to my chambered Glock 22...in case a BG tries to kick in my front door while I'm dining. :image035:
