I just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. No, not happy holidays, Merry Christmas. Have you noticed that "Merry Christmas" is becoming something of a symbol of rebellion? Indeed, there seems to be a backlash, and more and more people are using the phrase "Merry Christmas" with an subtle underlying attitude that whispers "take your happy holidays and shove it". A very good thing, indeed. Let's face it, if you are offended by someone wishing you Merry Christmas, you have issues that need to be addressed by you, not by those around you.
In short, if you want tolerance, try practicing some yourself.
As a side note, I haven't been blogging nearly as much as I should or would I have liked. It's been a fairly rough time and next week looks busy in the extreme. I promise that more blogging will be in the offing as we close out '06 and prepare for '07.
Again, Merry Christmas!
