Christmas Chatter

Dad:  So how many countries celebrate Christmas

Me:  How many people you mean?

Dad:  I know places like Britain, France, Germany

Me:  Yeah, well, it's a matter of Christians being predominant enough to actually shut everything down on Christmas, if that's what you're asking.

Dad:  What about Arab countries?

Me: Umm, well, no.  The mass of Christ is Christian specific, mostly. 

Sister:  Who do Muslims pray to. 

Me:  It's the Abrahamic god.

Sister:  Is it?

Me:  Yeah.  Hebrew and Arabic are actually closely related, so just think 'Yeh-Ho-Vah' and 'All-Lah' and it's pretty clear...

Dad:  Well wouldn't it make sense that they'd aknowledge the son of god....

Me.  Well, um.....ummm. Well, they would be Christians is they considered Jesus the son of god.  They don't, so.....yeah, you see.

Sister:  Why do they say the Jews killed Jesus?

Me:  Look, I'm going to pick up some more liquor. I'll be back in a bit.
