So, my friend is having a birthday party today, and even though I pestered him for ages about what he wants, he just said to draw something random. The big question is, what? Do you guys have any ideas?
Jet fuel. It's a safe thing to paint his steel beams with.
Ah, that makes sense.
Draw something random, huh? ... How 'bout a skeleton playing a guitar while riding a T-Rex that is also riding a great white shark, which is jumping over Cthulu? ... In the middle of the rave.
This is a masterpiece. I think I'll just draw all the ones I like and then choose whichever doesn't fail. xD
*imagining Cthulu at a rave*... xD Yeah, if you draw mine, I really wanna see the finished product.
I'll post it if it's good enough.
Yes! That's good. I'll do my best.
What are his interests?
Um... well, music, and... um... music...
Let's just say I don't know him well enough to say something specific. I mean, we are good friends, but we don't particularly talk about specific interests.
Draw a bunch of instruments with the age he's turning in the middle.
Put in the most obvious animal: the pe- no, that snake is too inappropriate. o_e It's actually a snake type.
Obviously, it should be the Lowland Streaked Tenrec...playing the saxophone!
Make a card that says 'Happy Birthday' in big bubble letters, with a tiny pin that's falling towards it, and do confetti and all that fun stuffs. The logical thing for the inside to contain would be the explosion of letters as the 'pop' from the pin, but instead make something really really freakin' scary looking. XD and then on the back draw a cute little animal with giant ears and a big ol' fluffy tail that it holds in front of it.
For my friend's bday I just gave him twenty bucks and he was cool with that because we're friends like that.
If he really wants you to draw somethinf, you shouls get a card and write on the fromt "Happy That-One-Obligatory-Pagan-Holiday-That-Christians-Ripped-Off :D!" accompanyed by several pagans doing a fire ritual to summon Sol. At the bottom write "One more year closer to you burning in hell"
*depends on how close you both are / if he has a sense of humor
Wait, the birthday celebration is also a pagan holiday? (I mean, I thought there were "birthdays" in different ages like every X years, and there's also coming-of-age birthdays....so...? Oh, you meant annual.)
Yes I meant annual birthdays.
If I'm correct, birthdays started as a Pagan ritual thing. Christians took it -- well as a lot of Pagan things -- and started doing it and now it's not religious anymore (just like Christmas)
Halloween, Easter, I think both All Hallows' days...didn't recall the annual birthday getting closer, but hey, the more you know!
There are Christians that certainly consider birthdays to be pagan holidays. I know the Jehovah Witnesses don't celebrate them.
Yes. They only celebrate Jesus's birthday. Which is not Christmas.
So...celebrate the same celebration on another day that's near-impossible to determine...
So they basically celebrate a holiday based on Christmas and say it isn't Christmas?
Well, Christmas is a complicated holiday in general. If you want to know what it's about, it depends on who you ask.
Christians that call themselves Christians despite not being really religious: It's Jesus's birthday! :D
JWs: BS, no one knows Jesus's birthday!
Muslims / Jews: Pagan BS (The star on the tree? Halos? Sun-worship subliminal messaging? Is that all just a coincidence?)
Muslims that celebrate Christmas (I've never met any, and I can't imagine ANY Muslim dare celebrating a christian thing. If there are people like this, I pity you lot. Pick up a Qu'ran yo): It's just family togetherness!
Atheists (Danaos / Spartacus): Money money money
Iclandish people: (probably something to do with testicles) Well, there's 7 Santas, and this and this and that *completely different version of Christmas than the American version*
Which proves why Christmas is a bunch of BS in general. So yeah.
Hey you forgot me in the Atheist section! Well I guess I'm half Atheist half Christian.
I should clarify, there was a thread I started some time ago about Christmas, and I mentioned people based on their responses to it. I remember Danaos and Spartacus talking about money. Unfortunately I was trying to reach some Christians but I couldn't find any.
I don't think a Christian could explain Christmas though (which again proves why it's just BS)
Anyway that doesn't make much sense to me since atheism directly clashes, with like, all Abrahamic religions so I can'f see how that's possible, but good for you I guess
I go to a catholic school and it gets to my head..... GET ME OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I believe in Heaven and Hell, but I don't believe in God. And I think they over exaggerated what Jesus did.
I mean he told everyone he was a child of god, so
