Poll #1647964 Which is your favorite header design?

Which header should appear on the top of LiveJournal?

I have LJFriends in Australia and am in the UK myself. This means that it is not only the Russians who do not want USian holidays paraded on our LJ header. Some of my LJFriends are also pagan or otherwise not likely to want to celebrate "The Holidays" as many in the US do. Please, LJ, give us a chance to turn off these seasonal headers or chose our own!

agreed entirely. I doubt that LJ would do a header for other, less "mainstream American" holidays.

What are these American hollidays you keep talking about? u.s.a is supposedly multicultular and full of atheists who join in mixed marriages so I do not see them having "mainstream hollidays". btw.pagans died out in the middle ages, I doubt that ppl who call themselves pagans today worship the nature since they live very far from it and lost every possible connection to paganism. But I guess it's annoying when you don't believe in anything except perhaps money&material things, to put up with so many fakers who don't actually celebrate anything during Christmas/Hanuka/BAjram/whatever but they just want a chance at spending shit load of money and talk about how much they gave for their upcoming trip to God knows to celebrate New year(how did this stupid thig become a holliday outside of Asia, only God knows.At least it makes sense in Asia, but I guess we needed another fake holiiday which basically celebrates nothing so ppl who don't have faith in anything( who cares about religion), can celebrate nothing in a totaly hedonistic and mortal way. I'm so 'looking forward' to that holliday.Not. Anyhow, I just wanted to join in on the rant and speak my mind. I hope you'll all understand what I'm trying to say. I used to live in a real multicultural country( not u.s.a) and man, did the cultures&traditions&faiths clash on daily basis. But I'm telling you this attitude you have leads nowhere. I'm not religious but through my parents I am a member of romanocatholice church.And I do believe in God( not the pope or the abortion censure), three days of Christmass and the two days of Easter mean something to me. It's a spiritual journey for me.I'm offended by these fakers who parade with their Santa Claus&xmas trees&money spending more then you can imagine. When someone congratulates Christmass to me( he/she don't have to be rmk or christian for it to happen) it means I can wish them all the blessings I wished for my own family. You should be honoured that ppl care enough to include you in their tradition(even the fakers), not grossed out&annoyed. Likewise I'm always honoured&humbled by others wishing me well on their hollidays. So I'm just saying I do not need a Christmas lj online when I'm living one in real life(snowflakes, soul cleansing, good will&joy to all around). That much I can agree on. But this attitude, I do not like. Respect others(their hollidays, culture, religion, language) and only then can you except some of that respect&consideration to return to you.
