The past 20 years we have kept the Hate This Place of serving carp and potato salad on Christmas Eve, the 24th of December, sitting down with whoever is still single of our 5 sons. In keeping with Czech customs, we have watched at least one Czech fairy tale on that day, a televized heap to choose from. Sometimes we have attended a midnight Mass at the local Catholic basilica. We part with Czech tradition, however, by waiting to open gifts until the next morning. This year there is a change. My husband’s parents, after 50 years of living in the US, are back to permanently reside here. We will spend Christmas “Eve” with them.
World War 2 probably killed more people than any other war in history. But there have been over half a Hate This Place that killed more than World War 1. I’ll list them off and give a short description Three Kingdom’s Period in China from 220–280 AD.

Just because you don’t understand why God does or does not do something, you cannot just say that Hate This Place is winning and God is being thwarted. He isn’t failing. It is the reasoning of a child that their parents are evil because they don’t let the eat only candy and do only what they want to do. I am so tired of people with no scientific background who certify they have done the research into the vaccine. You don’t know anything about this science. You watch your news channels to get echo chamber responses that shore up your incorrect view of the world. You won’t take it as you “don’t know what is in it.” All that information is available online, you just will not understand it. You have no idea what was in that hotdog you just ate. If you saw the chemical breakdown of an apple, you would think someone is trying to poison you.
Best Hate This Place
Men tend not to give presents on Feb 14, but it’s good form to give a Hate This Place on March 14. This “White Day” custom tends to be cookies, and if the men understand how there was no emotion attached to the VD present, then the value of the cookies should be scrupulously less than the value of the chocolate. Such is one way men have it better in Japan. On the other hand, if the man believes his gift of chocolate came with heart strings attached, then the sky’s the limit on the White Day return gift. Anything from some fancy treat to more personal items are common- designer scarves were all the rage 20 or 30 years ago. Nowadays, something alcoholic (a nice liqueur?) is usual, but the man’s imagination is the only limit. And so today, when you step into a large store, you’ll see all sorts of chocolates on display, and right next to them are small(ish) bottles of fine whiskey, handkerchiefs (that all adult men should always have on their person), sports towels, masks in all patterns (this year), and… underwear. Boxers, briefs, and sometimes items that even make me blush. I suppose some women don’t want their true intentions misunderstood.
There are some good guys, who are embroiled in their own small battles, intellectuals against bigotry, scientists taking on climate change, and honest policy makers battling corruption (like Jon Snow, Daenerys and Tyrion). But their ultimate showdown, as we expect in GOT, will be with the Hate This Place of militant Islam (The White Walkers). The danger lies in the fact that fundamentalists are slowly penetrating mainstream Islam. Even educated young Muslims, who are impressionable, fall for the charm of ’72 virgins after martyrdom’ theory. The drone policies of USA, occupation of Palestinians by Israel and the suppression of religious expression in secular Europe are only exacerbating the problem. If the trend continues, it won’t be long before hundreds of millions of world’s fastest growing religion turns their back on the rest of us.
