I love it... very funny !!<br><br><br>the sad thing Matt is the far righties- Neo-conners have nothing to beat the Dems or Liberals on so they MADE up this phoney balogny war on Christmas..<br>or should I say XMas so you can react??<br><br>that's pathetic... NO one is fighing this war but the Neos in their puny minds of Pat Robertson!!<br><br>they have NO subject to trumpet or real issue to beat on since GW and Iraq have gone down the tubes, so they make a "phoney" one up!! <br><br>Did this come from some far right or religious magazine/ paper??<br><br>David (OFI)<br>
I was noticing the other day how many ads are now advertising "Holiday" sales rather than "Christmas" sales. Its too bad big corporations have to worry about offending a small segment of the population. They don't seem to care that it offends me that they don't call it "Christmas".<br><br>
Hate to wake you, but "Holiday" has been part of the retail vocabulary for 20 years. It has more to do with attracting sales from a broader, more diverse market than with being PC. And given that Xmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, and who knows what else all falling within the same time frame, giving Xmas the exclusive rights to all that shopping is pretty limiting. <br><br>On the other hand, I think traditional icons like Xmas trees, Menorahs, Kinaras, etc. should be called what they are rather than being homogenized.<br><br>Forget separation of church and state. It's all about commerce, Baby! Ain't but one God on that HOLIDAY. Bow down to the all-mighty Dollar... <br><br>

I realize "Holiday" has been a part of the retail vocabulary. "Christmas" used to be as well. Retailers no longer sell "Christmas trees". They're now "Holiday trees" or "Pine trees" or just "pre-lit trees". That's what's disappointing.<br><br>

Why not distract with this kind of inane blather about taking the Christ out of Christmas?<br><br>As a pagan I should be the most affronted by the holidays. The pagans were ripped off first. We had perfectly good pagan rituals for getting the sun to come back and you christians turned it into Christmas. Let's put the animal sacrifice back in X-mas!<br><br><br><br><br>(__*__) <-- circular sig when standing
