I don't know why you would think I think that either.
[b]OUR[/b] holidays are ridiculous in a fantasy world. Particularly the modern versions of them that feature 19th and 20th century inventions like plastic creatures, candy corn, jack-o-lanterns, and the commercialized mess that modern Christmas has become.
If you think aviator glasses, chainsaw swords, and polymer-bending computers make sense in a world still throwing around steel maces, I'm not going to argue the issue. But I think Anet knows when they are trolling people, and that happens to be something Asura are very good at.
I'm not sure if you've noticed... but the races in Guild Wars 2 are no longer simply slinging steel maces around. The Asurans are crafting functional, mechanic and robotic golems to do their bidding for them. The Charr have many mechanical siege weapons in their home lands, with major rotating mechanical parts; I believe I even saw something that resembled a functioning "car" like vehicle. Engineers have function turrets and many of the professions are hauling around some form of powder firing guns.
Aviator glasses, chainsaws and polymer-bending computers make perfect sense.
