The Christmas Kurfuffle

While the O'Reilly's and the Hannity's and the Cultural Crusaders of the world get their pants in a twist surrounding the "Happy Holidays" issue, I've always thought it to mean "Hey, I probably won't talk to you until after the first of the year....so Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year." Thus giving me two holidays to wish them well about....plural holidays....more than one. So, my short form for that has always been "Happy Holidays".

Since I became a responsible and thoughtful adult and realized that there are multiple cultures out there, I got a bonus and could also fold in Ashura, Al Hijra - Muslim New Year, Hanukkah, Bodhi Day, Kwanzaa, National Chocolate Day, whatever, and I was covered.
