Yep, too many random connections lately to make them all fit together into a coherent post. This past week included trips to Charlotte for business, rehearsals galore, a disappointing Furman football game, and a concert at the Peace Center. I look at this week’s schedule, and it includes more rehearsals, a children’s pageant, and office gatherings for both Laura and myself. So much for holiday relaxing.
Speaking of holidays, I am really, really sick and tired of the ignoramuses that think Christmas is under attack from "secular humanists." These folks really need to get a clue. It is nothing short of one mindset trying to force itself on the rest of the world. The receptionist at my office is daily berated for using the phrase "Happy Holidays" when she answers the phone.
My friend Haywood over at Reedy River Review has the best analysis…
Happy Holidays means Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Kwanza, Happy New Years, Happy Winter Solstice, Happy Festivus, etc. It does not mean I hate Christmas or I hate Christianity. In fact the term "holiday" comes from the term "Holy Day".
Haywood continues with some other very good points about Xmas and Christianity.
