I imagine it looks a lot like this.

If you’d ever seen Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life you wouldn’t have to ask.

Unnecessarily fancy trees and Jesus mopping in the corner because he didn’t get the present he wanted for his birthday.

I imagine it is celebrated with joy and praise but no shopping or selfishness.

Sorry to hear that Jesus has been, theoretically, demoted to janitor.

Contrary to popular belief, Heaven actually celebrates Festivus.

I bet it’s celebrated every day along with Easter
Holy Holy Holy Lord
Lord God of power and might
Heaven and earth are full of Your glory
Hosanna Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord
Hosanna Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

@Judi, I like the way your praise the Lord. :-)

@Judi – with all due respect, if I had to celebrate Christmas every day, not to mention if I had to sing that song all the time, I’d rather hang with the Devil.

I think they all sit around listening to this album. I would.

NSFC WARNING: It rocks.

“Not Safe For Church.” Duh.

Everyone gets iPods, already stocked with their favorite songs. All the handmade sweaters you receive from all your various aunts who have ever lived all look great on you and fit perfectly. You can have as much eggnog as you want (with or without rum) and never get fat or hungover. And everything you buy as gifts just shows up under the tree, preventing you from having to fight the crowds, and allowing even the lowliest retail employee to have the day off, to spend however they choose.

And, if the calendar falls just right, you can play Dreidel with Jesus. He even lets you have some of the gelt, because he’s nice like that.

@Judi: isn’t it great to join our voices with the saints and Angels of heaven? One day, we will dance with them:)
I can’t wait!

I think my sweet Grandma is celebrating with Jesus on his special day. She is singing carols with a choir of angels glorifying Jesus. Hopefully she can take a peek at her family celebrating Christmas together and keeping all of her wonderful Christmas traditions.

Yep. Santa’s in the middle of the fun, of course!
He’s not mopping or moping.

He, he, he, he….lurve some of these answers. And the Bea Arthur clip is trippy!

@cdwccm: what’s stopping you? Dance now! :)

Not to start a religious flame war but where in the Bible does it say that Christians ‘go to heaven’?

If I’m not mistaken it talks about God being in ‘heaven/the heavens’ but his believers going to the New Jerusalem. (All that’s in Revelation I think).

Plus Christmas is a secular holiday I severely doubt they would “celebrate it in heaven.”
Jesus wasn’t born in December.

angel orgies… I’m pretty sure… but they are very soft-core like Cinemax porn… I don’t think angles have genitalia.

cooksalot's avatar

Good one @astrochuck!

madcapper's avatar

@ dave thats great!

Hobbes's avatar

@madcapper – Yeah. I mean, can you imagine? Pythagorean porn… Rule 34, guys!

madcapper's avatar

@ Hobbes it would be quite strange huh? haha

My mom is singing in the heavenly choir this year. I agree with Judi and mzgator. Our loved ones are going to be looking down on us with love.

@elchoopanebre, no flame war, but I think this answers your question. You can read this here. Jesus said, “In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”

I am ready for my room!

PupnTaco's avatar

Me too, I want a 50” plasma, surround sound, full bar, pinball & ‘80s arcade machines, lots of seating, and funky ‘70s fixtures. Make the architecture Eichler/Cliff May, please, while you’re at it. Thanks.

Hobbes's avatar

My room will be a giant ball pit.

I think he may have been more literal. He was going to Joseph’s new villa in Canna, and told his disciples to come and visit. No, seriously. I do believe in God, but sometimes we overdo it with the Bible.

If heaven does exist, I don’t think it is bound by time and space. Therefore the angels don’t even notice what time of year it is on Earth, and certainly someone who is 2008 years old (actually 2015 historically) would not be blowing candles, don’t you think?

I imagine “heaven” as the place your thoughts go when there is no brain to accomodate them.

@Jack79: I wonder if that’s why so many of the customers I used to wait on had that faraway look…
