OSNews, Generic OSes As here in Europe Christmas eve has already begun, we, the OSNews team, both editors and site maintainers, would like to wish all of our readers a very merry Christmas. May everyone be with the ones they love-- no matter one's nationality, religion, favourite operating system, favourite desktop environment, or whatever. Let us also hope the victims of the tsunami, the earthquake in Pakistan, and Gulf Coast hurricane, and all others who have suffered this year, have found comfort. Let's have a moment of silence on the 26th for them. Merry Christmas, people (and anyone who dares to sing "Last Christmas" in the comments gets banned for a week) !

shup up youself, and think about it,
when you are eating your christmas dinner ...
think about the people who are alone,
who have noone who cares about them ...
that is the people you should be caring
about this days ... and don't tell me to
shut up, just because you don't agree with me,
you just want to go with everyone, who is just
doing what the companies want you to do...
spend your money on expensive stuff, and fill
their pockets ... please ... this is not what
christmas is supposed to be about ...

Hmmm... give presents to loved ones, check. That IS what Christmas is about. Sorry I can't make everything I do or say have an impact on the world's problems. But once or twice I year I can gather with my close friends and familiy and celebrate, without guilt for that the fact that the world sucks. And you should to.

there is nothing wrong with the present,
just to show you care about your friends,
but that is not the point ... the point is,
it is supposed to be just a present, and not
a too much ... not all expensive stuff,
just a simple present to show that you care...

and why do you need a 5 plate dinner ?
Just to have dinner with family and friends should
be enough...
