In the year 2080, Christmas is no longer celebrated as the birth of Jesus Christ but the coming of Santa.

Christmas will loose all its religious meaning and it will become a purely commercial celebration.

You realize that happened years ago right? Jesus wasn't even born around christmas, and most of the christmas symbols have nothing to do with christianity anyway, I mean really a pine tree, where would you ever find a pine tree Bethlehem?

While skimming the headlines I read this article as "Mall Has Kids Skype Santa Instead of Visiting in Prison". Just thought I would share :)

Great... another job soon to be outsourced to a foreign county... jk :D
Since we're talking about the commercialization of Christmas... I wonder if they'll eventually take this into the direction of having a paid service so parents can have their kids Skype with Santa straight from home. Parents then don't have to deal with all the hustle with getting to the mall around Holiday time and all that jazz...

Eventually, Black Friday and year-end clearance sales will be the holidays, not Christmas and New Years Eve.

Retailers have been doing everything they can to make Christmas absolutely unbearable since the mid 90's but eliminating the Mall Santa is something I have a hard time with.

[citation][nom]jhansonxi[/nom]In a few years, technology will allow Santa to be outsourced to overseas call centers.[/citation]
Since Santa lives at the the North Pole, wouldn't a call center in any country, including the US, be outsourcing?

I don't know about losing religious meanings, but most of English speakers have already lost their ability to distinguish between lose/loose, your/you're, their/they're and so on. At this point, I don't give a $h!t about religion (in fact, I'd love it to disappear from people's lives), I just want everyone to proof-read their posts... doesn't your browser have a spell checker? :D
