    What would He-man do?

    By my count it's 26 days until Christmas. So my two-part question is, 1) how do you think The Most Powerful Man in the Universe is going to celebrate Christmas this year and 2) how would you celebrate Christmas this year if you were The Big Guy?

    And remember, we're not in The Tar Swamp here folks.

    For starters, I would have a sweater, He-Man and I don't look as good without a shirt on, but in central Alberta I think us both would have to stay indoors as much as possible.

    Hollywood anti-piracy professionals estimate Canadians watch more screen time than most(and therefore we allegedly download a lot more), as we like to stay home where its warm.

    I think, when Adam got lazy, he went fishing on Eternia, maybe he/I would go shoot coyotes and bears, cause you need to cut through the ice to fish in December. (I guess He-Man would punch through the ice..?)

    I think Adam would "volunteer" to go get he-man for the party. Land and hide a sky sled hoof it back to the palace. He-Man would play "dumb" and would be like I was patrolling and thought I'd stop bye. I haven't seen Adam. then party up.

    After a while He-Man would be like well, i'd better go find him and call it a night.

    Then Adam would be like um yah. I got lost and he-man helped me out. SOOOO. any punch left? cake? I'm starved.

    Everyone else is just like sighing or going ugh.

    I wouldn't want to be he-man but I'll play along. Shortly right before the party go on one last patrol for the day. tap in the grayskull power for decorative clothing and try to have fun and relax.

    smart ass answer:what? don't you know? didn't you write an episode or two of he-man? COME ON! You're k'llng me Mr. O. To this day you probably still have an idea or two for new episodes floating around in your head. and one of them is probably a x-mas show. (sorry. I couldn't resist).

    I think my #1 stays true to the characters personas/personalities.

    My #2 falls under the all work and no play saying. he-man himself is allowed to have fun, right? If not he should.

    Indeed. Marlena did not even tell Adam about Christmas. He heard about it for the first time from Miguel and Alicia after they were accidentally transported to Eternia from Earth.

    I think the MOTU Christmas special probably covered how he will celebrate it - he might even invite Skeletor if it would turn him good again even for short time

    You obviously never heard about my plans for Season 2 of NA:

    I'm sure he (as Adam) would have a delightfully awkward conversation about Eternian politics with his estranged uncle at the dinner table.

    If He-Man were real he wouldn't be wasting time with some trivial holiday. He-Man would be out fighting evil doers where ever they may be.

    Not sure this is the place for slamming Christmas. Religious matters and trivialization of them, probably belong in The Tar Swamp. But I'll leave that to the mods.

    Merry Christmas.

    Discuss whatever you want, except for politics, religion, and sex!
    Well considering the fact that all holidays have a religious or political basis . Are you not bending the rules Mr Olesker ? I can imagine this thread upsetting Jehovahs witness org. members

    The thing about Christmas is that it may had a religious basis but it's far from religious or being a religious holiday. In my opinion.

    I don't think it's been trivialized. commercialized. yes. but that's another subject for another time. In my opinion.

    let's try to have some fun with a character we all grew up with and have fond memories of.

    don't worry I'm not going to make us hold hands and sing kum ba ah.

    on a side note I want to see masters were x-mas sweaters.

    Well said.

    But with that said, it's my belief that Christmas has transcended -- although not lost its importance of -- being solely a religious holiday. The fact is that many people who are neither religious nor Christian nor believe in Christ as the Son of God celebrate Christmas in their own way. Christmas is HUGE in Japan. The music, the trappings, the spirit of Goodwill are all good things, I think.

    It was in that way that I was asking the question about what He-man would do. I should have clarified, so I apologize.

    I agree wholeheartedly. Lots of things evolve over time. So many aspects of Christmas are great and should be held in all our hearts (peace on earth, goodwill to men, child-like wonderment and magic). And while I realize that-sadly-it's a time when the spirits of many may fall low, it's also a time that should remind us of how fortunate we are for the good people and things in our lives. And if that leads people to be a little more generous to those in need, all the better.

    If Skeletor can find the spirit of Christmas and be nice, we can find common ground.

    Merry Christmas, my friend.

    You touch my heart. After everything we've been through together in The Tar Swamp, you've just made my Christmas Season and given me hope that all of our kinder selves will eventually come back together. I mean it.

    Isn't that kind of the point of the season?

    That being said, if you're a Chiefs or Broncos fan, I officially retract all niceties and would like to reiterate any negative comments x50 (he said, exhausted and disappointed after the Thursday Night game).
