The War On Christmas

Red and green Starbucks cups, saying “happy holidays,” and the possibility that Santa could be a woman have been some of the subjects of petty debates over the so-called “War on Christmas.” Although no one seems to have actually declared war on Christmas – or suggested that it shouldn’t be celebrated, the concept of a war on Christmas is based on the conservative idea “triggered SJW‘s” are threatening the integrity and popularity of the holiday.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

The debate over whether or not the widely covered song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” is an outdated celebration of rape culture or a timeless Christmas classic has spread to the world of memes.

Twenty years from now, kids are gonna think “Baby it’s cold outside” is really weird, and we’re gonna have to explain that it has to be understood as a product of its time. from r/Jokes
