Happy Holidays from Robot 6

from Matthew Petz

It’s Christmas Eve, and we’re winding down here at Robot 6 to go spend time with family and friends. Before heading off to celebrate, though, you’ll find a collection of holiday-themed links after the jump, along with this year’s collection of holiday cards we received.

On behalf of all of Robot 6, have a great holiday and stay safe. We’ll see you next week.

Have a great holiday!



Some cute artwork, but why do almost all of them-including the ones of Santa-say “Happy Holidays” and not “Merry Christmas”?

Short: Merry Christmas has been ruined by fundamentalist Christians. I have sworn to never use it again, because of the Fox News “War On Christmas” nontroversey.

Also: Santa Claus isn’t real, has nothing to do with Christ, and neither does Christmas. It’s various pagan winter Solstice celebrations co-opted by the early Christians to make it easier to convert pagans.
