|One of the simplest outfits to wear when you've declared 'War on Christmas.'|
It's that time of year again. Visions of snowy days, sugarplums, brightly colored tinsel, and the 'War on Christmas.' No one really knows how this notion started. All we know is that it comes annually like arthritis in the winter or those gosh-awful movie remakes to remind us that while there is good in the world, evil is never that far behind.
It's the lovely time of the year in which conservatives entities like Fox News and conservative evangelicals either manufacture a moral panic from some isolated incident like a Christmas song excluding lyrics about Jesus or simply make up a lie (usually about someone praying or a Nativity scene) to push an alarmingly hysterical idea that evil forces (i.e. LGBTQ people, 'leftists,' socialists, pro-choice activists, etc etc) are plotting to destroy Christmas. Or at least take it away from its 'Christian' roots. They do it every year because people respond better when you make them fear something and puff up their egos at the same time.
I say if we are going to have a War on Christmas, let's go all the way. And the first thing we should consider is attire. It is important to send the message that we are seriously going to wreck Christmas A good outfit can go a long way into sending the message.
It's always good to have a theme. You want to coordinate your outfits so that there is a linear message sent. Any theme will do but always remember that creativity is the key. Now since I grew up in the 1970s, I am going to present a blaxploitation theme. Feel free to copy or create your own.
