    Ban @jeff_woehrle would be the liberal position. Oh no, liberals are too supportive of the first amendment, but it would certianly qualify as a leftist position. They'd give you a white christmas indeed, i understand siberia has plenty of snow.

    What a great Xmas gift idea! Free tickets for helicopter ambulance rides with one guest included. Option packages include a photographer who can memorialize the entire event as a part of a keepsake photo album. An added plus would be discount packages for online obituaries and Find-a-Grave pics ONLY if needed

    Well I think if I felt anything that is anywhere in the realm of servere pain, or hard time breathing my butt would be bothering whoever needs to be bothered.

    First of all, you dismissed those 2 other causes way to quickly, but I do agree excessive considerateness, as in being phony or out of character to people you might not normally relate to can be stressful in itself.

    Pure and simply money! I know as a parent I'd rather give to my child than pay for something for myself. Evan if it means something turning out worse for me Heath wise. I love my child that much and want him to have everything I never had

    My father-in-law refused to visit the doctor just before Thanksgiving a couple of years ago because he knew he would be hospitalized. The pneumonia destroyed his lungs and he suffered a slow, painful death confined to long-term care facilities on full-flow Oxygen.

    people don't just avoid healthcare over the holiday they avoided healthcare all year long bc it's way to expensive to go to the doctor just for a routine check up god forbid the doctor has to break out a pen and wright a prescription you'll be paying that bill for weeks to come and if you have go to the ER you might as well stop at the bank before you get back home so you can declare bankruptcy health care in America sucks its way to expensive and the doctors are over paid while the nurses who actually work and not just give their medical opinion are over worked and underpaid but its America capitalism is everything profit before life it's the American way

    This is a very stressful time of the year for many. Add to that increased crime, highway travel, and confrontations during family gatherings.

    I can't speak for anyone else but I would not go anywhere near a hospital on a Holiday. Last trip I spent 16 hours before even seeing a doctor yet they found it necessary to run up a bill of close to 20,000.00 for tests ordered by perhaps the meanest nurse since Nurse Rachett. I can't even imagine their attitude having to work on Christmas.

    holiday stress is the big killer. people can't afford to live up to everyone else's expectations, so it effects them adversely.

    tell me, why is the suicide rate at christmas higher than at any other time of year?

    Yes, because they are greedy, and only care about getting stuff, and giving stuff to make themselves look better.
    Xmas is a time of stuff, worshipping magic Santa, and traffic collisions

    Having been to the ER for myself on both Christmas and Thanksgiving. And yesterday to a local hospital to spend Christmas with my Dad, I've been surprised how deserted the place was.And how accommodating the hospital workers were. The food was still bad though.

    I for one try to stay healthy around the holidays.....don't want to be told I need some unneeded surgery just so doc's wifey can get a new Z-4 for Christmas.....and don't want to be diagnosed and operated on by some specialist called away from his New Years bash.

    @ctc

    I just have a problem with kitchen knives. It's a running joke that I've cut off the tips my thumbs three times. All while cooking a holiday dinner.

    @Thunderchicken everyone who cooks knows that cuts and burns are endemic to the job. wrap a paper towel around the boo-boo and you can forget about it until you're chopping onions... that'll remind you, i guess.

    @Thunderchicken if i went to the emergency room every time i cut myself nobody in the house, or at the church, or anywhere else i cook for would ever get to eat. that's why my wife stopped insisting.
