______________________________

It’s that time o’ year, kids. It’s holiday time… don’t give me that “war on Christmas” crapola. Several religious and secular holidays DO coincide, so, “Happy Holidays” is more appropriate in a secular context. Of course, in Christian venues, “Merry Christmas” is welcome… but even there, one sees a place for “Happy Holidays”… ever heard of New Year’s or Epiphany? Remember, there’s a world of difference between “secular” and “secularist”. Furthermore, there’s nothing wrong with the latter, so long as it isn’t “theomachistic” or “anti-Faith”. I respect all faiths… including Secularism. I don’t hold with many of them, but I do respect the people who hold them.

Let’s keep the spirit of the season (and do pass the spirits, please… 80 proof or better, hon). After all, Dede is watching you… and he’s got a secret line to Santa!
