Well I have to hand it to the Cons at Sun News, because if it wasn't for them I'd never know that a brutal War on Christmas was raging.
Although so far most of the reports flowing in from the front seem depressingly familiar.
More like scary Lezra, and the never ending War on David Suzuki.
And even warning Santa to watch his back.
But hey, that's why they call him an idiot, and them Fox News North.
And BTW I'm not worried about Santa.
Because I understand he's ready for ANYTHING...
Even though the gun nutz at the National Rifle Association have betrayed him cruelly.
Now I have to be brutally honest eh? I'm willing to celebrate ANY religious festival, as long as it doesn't involve shopping, as long as the religious don't try to kill me, and most importantly as long as there is FOOD.
So I'm quite happy to wish my Jewish friends Happy Hannukah, because quite frankly when I've got the munchies, I sometimes fear I might kill for a latke. And I'm STILL waiting for somebody to invite me to light a candle on a menorah.
As for my Muslim friends, I help feed them...um...pizza...during the hungry month of Ramadan. They bring me delicious stuff their mums make during the feast of Eid, so I figure I'm the big winner eh?
And when I don't know who is who, wishing people Happy Holidays seems totally reasonable to me.
However, I have to admit I'm just a tiny bit biased. Although I'm an atheist, I was raised to be a good Christian boy by my most excellent parents. And I am gay.
So when I hear the right-wing version of this seasonal classic.
I think I prefer this one...
Hey, hug the ones you love. Be kind to strangers, especially the poor and the lonely. Enjoy all that good food. Don't forget to save me some eh?
And Happy Holidays everyone !!!!
