Deck the Halls with a Menorah

It's the "Holiday Season." At one time we were more specific. The Christians called it "Christmas" and celebrated their own way, and the Jews called it "Hannukkah" and celebrated it in their own way, and the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say "Happy Hannukah!" or "Merry Christmas!" or (to the atheists) "Look out for the wall."

That's a nice one! Well, it all about diversity and differences. Apparently holiday celebrations are no exception.

Merry, Merry Christmas! Let's watch the George C. Scott version of, "A Christmas Carol." That'll do the trick!

There were plenty of Christians and Jews who went to the parties and drank with the atheists.

Hello Melissa, thanks for visiting my blog. Yours is the second I have read this Christmas on "Happy Holidays" and political correctness, and I'll bet there are many many more who are getting fed up with it. The cartoon is great.
