Christmas, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is mulling over the concept of complementing his staggering Fiction Corpus with a morality play about the martial arts; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I don't question the concept of honoring English as a worldwide standard. I don't trust in the pedantic style in which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Boosting one's command of a language isn't like creating a finer porcelain. A language - a spoken language - is not just a tool that you can teach yourself to use with greater amounts of precision. A common tongue cannot be pulled from the professed knowledge of a group of people of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

Teaching a student to recite English is to deprive him of its cultural context. A good teacher must develop a technique for introducing it; the bravest pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries define a language on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of written works of various scope and consistency. This corpus could include anything from a book about literature to a collection of science fiction reviews. I developed my "majestic" Fiction Corpus in order to form a new class of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have framed a million words and I have examined them, reformulating them - not just to teach an American tongue but to defend the human spirit, and to propel that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help Prevent Terrorism With ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

My plane touched down in Poland on June 20th. A month later I was in Austria. Two days later, Slovenia. The next day, Croatia. A week later, Italy. The next day, Switzerland. The next day, France. The next day, Germany. The next day, Belgium. The next day, Holland. All with a woman I had met my first weekend on the Continent.

As an artist inspired by a young woman's struggle with self-esteem and bulimia, body acceptance had always featured prominently in my aesthetic. Having recently discovered naturism and its mantra of body acceptance in the United States, I was eager to explore the style and philosophy of naturist clubs and the beauty of naturist campsites in Europe. By a trick of fate, I found myself first in Bielsko-Biała, Poland. Margo's home.

I had grown up in America. Land of opportunity. I came of age in the booming 90s when everything was possible. She had grown up in Poland. She had come of age at a time when the Soviets were making sure that there wasn't even anything to eat in the country. I couldn't even properly translate the word "opportunity" into Polish.

Margo and I spent over 40 days on the road. We started out as basically strangers, but in those 40 days we started listening to each other. We started teaching ourselves how to cooperate. Our journey across Europe may have ended, but our journey towards each other continues. No amount of fear, anger, sadness, disgust or anticipation can stop hope. Slowly but surely, we're learning how to beat the devils that abuse us.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Christmas

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word christmas in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word christmas, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word christmas is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Christmas in Sex for Children

A drawing of a man between a woman's legs in front of another man in a hospital bed

A literature book narrated by a pair of siblings on either side of the Atlantic whose profoundly weird sexual experiences pose a serious challenge to their traditional understanding of mathematicians, marriage, gay young men and God.

Now failing every other opportunity, a young maiden still had one last chance to see her future husband. Beginning on the thirteenth of December, on the feast day of Santa Lucia, the young woman could take one bite of an apple everyday, making sure that on Christmas Eve, she would take the very last bite, and then, with luck, she would see her future husband.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 21, Giving and Receiving a Look, Paragraph 1, Clauses 4-6

You expect me to believe that you quietly said to Indiana, "I wish I had someone to caress me," and that you meant nothing by it? that it was totally innocent? Well don't expect me to believe it so easily. I'm still having trouble recalling which Christmas party it was, and until I do remember and I'm able to corroborate the circumstances of that moment, your defense is strictly provisional. But I must admit, if I am able to believe your testimony, it would help to exonerate you from the greater share of blame.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 4, Doubting a Man's Intentions, Paragraph 3

Grandmother told me that young maidens wanting to marry would place these cherry branches next to the fire, specifically on St. Barbara's Day, and if they bloomed on Christmas Eve, they would be married in the coming year. I, out of simple curiosity, was compelled to follow that tradition. But Grandmother's cherry tree was all but barren; I held very little hope for its blooming. Now, according to Mother, I specifically chose a dead branch, so that I could later have an excuse not to marry. On the other hand, Grandmother felt it was only appropriate, since marrying me would take a miracle. Now that is how they answered Indiana's question that night.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 20, The Role Of Religion, Paragraph 6

And they said: no cheating. But I knew: because Albert was coming into Romania, the part where I live, to visit his family, and they were good friends of my family. They were very close to us. And he was always coming. But that time I knew that he wanted to take me back to Budapest with him. It was very funny: because also, on the day of Luca, we start making a chair from wood. Everybody is making this chair. And we have to keep making the chair and we cannot finish until the day before Christmas - almost like the apple. So when we finish, we put the chair inside the church. And if during the midnight mass, somebody steps on top of the chair, they are supposed to be able to see who is the witch. So Albert, he stepped on the chair, and he looked around, and everybody was looking at him, and then he looked at me, and he smiled, and he said: she is the witch, because she has bewitched me. And he asked me to marry him. Right there: standing on the chair. Everybody was waiting for me to say yes. And I purposely waited a long time. My mother: she whisper, he is crazy. And I said yes. I said really loud yes."

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 21, Giving and Receiving a Look, Paragraph 2, Clauses 7-25

I can imagine how significant a look this was, how striking an exchange. But I am surprised you didn't remember it was Christmas Eve in Austria. I suppose you were somewhat disengaged from the rest of the evening, and that, consequently, in your memory, that shared moment somehow strayed out of context. But I remember that night very well, especially in connection with another night.

Usage of Christmas in Miscellaneous Dingbats

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

Indiana gave us an embarrassed look. I smiled. I watched her slip the stick back into the bucket. Grandmother stretched out her hand. As usual, she was carrying a rag.

Indiana took it. She wiped the drops of water she spilled. She turned her head. "What did I do?" she asked. We chuckled.

Mother explained the custom of keeping a cherry branch next to the fireplace. If it bloomed on Christmas Eve, it would bring good luck.

"I guess it helps to know how long a branch takes to bloom," said Indiana.

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that may help put fears to rest depending on your outlook

Grandmother shook her head. "There was yet another way. Do you see how desperate girls were when I was young? On the feast of St. Lucia, a girl could take a bite from an apple. If she took a bite every day, making sure she took the last one on Christmas Eve, she could see her future husband.

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that might help overcome one's sense of discomfort depending on your outlook

"Everybody held their breath. They didn't know what I was going to say. They thought I might say no. Albert was so much older than me. My mother whispered in my ear, 'He is crazy. You know that.' It didn't matter. I decided a long time ago. I stood up. I tried not to smile. It didn't last long. I said, 'Yes.' It happened that very morning. We were married on Christmas Day."

"Happy Anniversary," I said. "It's almost here."

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that might calm one's sense of distaste depending on your outlook

I asked Indiana if she remembered last Christmas. "My grandmother told us about looking up chimneys naked."

Indiana smiled. "What did you see?"

"In the chimney, I saw nothing. When I came out, I saw Nike standing in front of me."

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that might help overcome one's sense of discomfort depending on your outlook

"It's funny." Indiana wagged her finger. "There is another thing we did on St. Luca. The whole village would start to make a chair. One family would make one leg. Another family would make another. It was a way of strengthening the community. Like the apple, we had to do something every day - even if it was only a bit of sanding. We couldn't finish until Christmas. When it was done, we would put the chair inside the church. If somebody was brave enough to step on it, he would be able to see who in the village is the witch.

The Body Acceptance Calendar

A really good idea for a monthly calendar

If a 45-year-old businesswoman and hard working mother of three kids is going to pose nude for a calendar, it's gonna have to be a good one. Margo didn't start a coffee shop called the Vagina Cafe to win her favors from the establishment. Even as she dishes out prizes to the 20 women who placed last in the twentienth anniversary run of her town's biggest road race, her business, unlike everyone else, doesn't get mentioned. She was an official sponsor for Christ's sake! But the announcer just couldn't swallow his patriarchy and get the words "Vagina Cafe" out of his mouth. That's not something a proper gentleman would say in front of a crowd of humble God-fearing "ladies" who cherish their modesty! And a Body Acceptance Calendar is certainly not what a humble God-fearing book-seller like a Barnes and Noble would put on their shelves! So how do I expect to sell this in the mainstream? Maybe if you download the free versions a thousand billion times it might help. Start downloading.
