    No one has ever been prohibited from saying “MERRY CHRISTMAS” or whatever other holiday(s) they celebrate on their own time. That mythical “War on Christmas”? That was a FIBrication entirely invented by the extremist right wing. It was not a Democratic First Lady who said, “Who gives a F*** about Christmas.” That “War on Christmas”? It is coming from INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE.

    The true spirit of Christmas would be to provide aid for those being evicted, who are hungry, who have lost jobs and who are otherwise suffering. Those who whine about saying “Merry Christmas” while they throw hungry children out into the streets are the HUMBUGS that Charles Dickens’ three Christmas spirits warned Ebenezer Scrooge about.

    The right wing wants the power to FORCE synagogues and mosques to put up Christmas trees and Nativity scenes.

    Remember: Right wingers think THEY are being attacked when you do something for YOURSELF that annoys them.

    Have you heard that some people are taking offense at being issued the “wrong” kind of season’s greetings? For pity’s sake, people, nothing to get all snippy about. It’s not that hard. Here’s the short course:

     • If you know somebody is a Christian, say “Merry Christmas”.

     • If you know that they’re Serbian, like my mom’s side of the family, say “Khristos se rodi” (or “Joyeux Noël” or “Felíz Navidad” or whatever the appropriate ethnicity is).

     • If you know they’re Jewish, go with “Happy Hanukkah”.

     • If you know they’re Wiccan, say “Blessed Yule”.

     • If you know they enjoy Kwanzaa, say “Joyous Kwanzaa”.

     • If you know they celebrate Festivus, say “Happy Festivus”.

     • If you’re talking to me — “Are you talkin’ to me?” — “Go, Pack!” gets a big grin all year round.

     • And in all other cases (that is, when you don’t know), go with “Happy Holidays” and you can’t miss.

    Do you detect the common theme here? It’s about spreading cheer to the other person. It’s not all about you.

    Now please pick your favorite season’s greeting and pretend it came from me. 8^D

    " . . . No one has ever been prohibited from saying “MERRY CHRISTMAS” or whatever other holiday(s) they celebrate on their own time . . . "

    ’Kinda reminds me of the FAKE European Union “edicts” that so incensed the British public – and led to Brexit.

    Such silliness as the edict that claimed that British bananas were too curvy to be called bananas (likewise cucumbers!) – or that the EU made it illegal to eat “pet” horses, or that drinking water does not have an effect on dehydration, or that diabetics were unfit to drive.

    These “edicts” were reported over and over by the Rupert Murdoch “news” media outlets, and were picked up by others as real. And political party hacks jumped on the bandwagon and enlarged the LIE. Say it over and over and people tend to believe it.

    But they were FAKE. FAKE NEWS (Sound familiar)?

    Yes, the British version of Fox “news” led the British people to reject the EU and led to Brexit – which is not IMHO beneficial to (ahem) what’s left of the United Kingdom – or the EU, come to that . . .

    Mitch cried like a baby over Lamar Alexander retiring today. So, we know he can cry. But has he shed one tear for Americans dying from covid alone in hospitals? Or the first line nurses and doctors that fight a battle that misinformation from the republican party has exacerbated. Has he supported working on a way of finding the parents of children who were separated at the border? Has he worked to find a way to save Americans from being evicted that didn’t include most of the relief going to the top 1%? Mitch is and always has been working for the top 1%, the rest of us are out of luck.

    Mitch, taking a short break from stepping on their fingers…

    HappyWinter Solstice, all!

    The nights to come get shorter! Reason enough to celebrate!

    No mythical beings needed to celebrate Winter Solstice.

    You can say it.. but thanks to trump (misguided) policy you won’t be able to enjoy it much. Travel is out, visiting out, lockdown in retirement homes.. threat of eviction, unemployment. But.. there will be bonuses for the shareholders of companies making PPE.. COVID research.. And, lets not forget all the overtime that the morgue folk are accruing.

    The old song says “Happy Golden days of yore / Faithful friends who are dear to us / shall be near to us once more.”

    Trump and McConnell say, “Not if we have anything to do with it.”

    I find this all very puzzling. Do these “Christians” think it’s polite to say “Merry Christmas” to their Jewish or Muslim friends? Maybe they don’t have any Jewish or Muslim friends. Maybe they don’t have any friends.

    How could Kentucky send their own WORST ENEMY back to the Senate for the seventh(!) time? The man is worse than Trump. He ruined the impeachment, ruined the Supreme Court, and is ruining the nation. We should cede Kentucky to Russia.

    Once while I was in the Post Office, I said Merry Christmas to another customer. He said thank you, Happy Hanukkah. I said thank you and we both smiled. There’s no reason to disrespect anyone.

    The best version of the “Little Match Girl” story I’ve read is in Terry Pratchett’s book, The Hogfather. You should really read it.
