Not to get all Grinchy here on Christmas morning, but one thing really frosts my butt: “Happy Holidays!”
This is not the “holiday season.” It’s Christmas.
For millennia Hanukkah, Chanukah, or however you spell it, was a minor holiday on the Jewish calendar. It’s been elevated to an absurd position of importance in America — kind of like English-Americans celebrating King George’s birthday right around the 4th of July, because, well, why not?
Besides, Chanukka — even at 8 days long — is long gone by the time Christmas rolls around.
And don’t get me started on Kwanzaa. I’ve got
a lot of some a few black friends, and they all celebrate Christmas.
This is Christmastime. The Christmas season.
And today is Christmas.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good yontiff.
