What's not to like about Christmas? Time off work; lots of food; drinking; and sparkly, shiny things everywhere. :cool:

Some people...

First of all its a christian celebration (Jesus birth). I find it wrong when atheists or agnostics (like me) celebrate it. It's also a celebration where social pressure forces you to waste a lot of money on gifts. It was much cooler as a kid when i was on the receiving end ;)

The next thing is that so many people hide their real face behind fake smiles and friendliness during that time. It's disgusting. What stops them from being friendly all year?

Then we have the issue of christmas music. It drives me fucking mental. This shit is everywhere.

I could go on.

The Christian thing really bothers you? I'd imagine the majority of people celebrating Christmas don't really follow Christianity at all — it's simply become a public holiday that revolves around having fun. Most public holidays have some shitty origin (eg: Guy Fawkes night, Easter) but they're still nice because it's an opportunity to do something different.

I mean seriously, who thinks about the whole Jesus birth thing? All everyone thinks about is Santa and decorations, just like how at Easter everyone thinks about chocolate and bunnies. :cool:

And I don't know about your friends and family, but I get along with mine pretty much all year. However it is nice to have an event like Christmas to use as a chance to get together, as normally there's no particular reason for doing so. OK so in an ideal world it'd happen all the time, but when your family reaches into the dozens it's not exactly practical.

There's no real downside to Christmas IMO. Okay so you might have to give some people some stuff, but you don't have to spend much and you usually get something in return (as long as it'd edible I'm usually happy with that). It's not a big deal.

PS: Scrooooooooge. ;)

Yes it bothers me. I'm very much against organized religion all year and so are a lot of atheists/agnostics. It's very hypocritic to celebrate jesus birth then. We don't celebrate any muslim, hindu or buddhist holidays either so why bother with christian traditions?

I don't know what is so fun about christmas either. The drinking? I can do that all year. Also the family gathering. If a family is funcional they will find always reasons to gather outside of christmas. Birthdays, weddings, first school days, funerals etc.

But anyway i don't want to be the party pooper for you. Just my 2 cents.

      Two new asset releases!

      First up is Basalt. Sadly I can't release all of the assets as some of the nature stuff is from Megascans and can't be redistributed. Also only includes the assets I've made.

      Second one is assets I've made for Pitstop. A small release that includes some road and concrete trim textures, a bunch of sponsors and some skybox buildings that might be useful.
