Does anyone else out there remember how Christmas and “the Holiday” were once pretty much synonymous? Does anyone else wonder how it is that all of a sudden there is such a powerful divergence? It used to be that we lumped the Christmas season, New Years, Chanukkah, and the Orthodox celbrations of Christmas and Epiphany all together. We called it the Holiday season.
So, just who is behind all this contention and why are we willing to jump into the fray and make it flame out of control?
It seems to me that we ought to approach this hairy problem with a little razor d’Occam, you know?
I think maybe the ACLU is pulling everyone’s beard and it is having the effect desired -by them.
I’m for not giving those kind what they want, putting a little coal in their stockings and overcoming evil with the good of spreading our holiday cheer with a joyous Christmas celebration. Refuse to be painted as joylessless and grumbling prisoners of their complaints and pokes.
It’s Christmas! And God loves you….everyone.
