Happy Christmas! by Em on 26 December 2005 1:24am
 
Although I'm only new on this forum, that's not going to prevent me from wishing every last one of you a very happy Christmas and New Year! Keep it safe and fun. xx

And to you as well, Em. I am safe. I've been in front of the computer for the last four hours mostly putting together the stuff for my website next week.

Oh no Cori, not that word, no please don't make me spell the word the Knights of...use now.
I am having nightmares of school spelling bees. What would Mr. Webster think of that word?

Where I live, some people are going "through the roof" because the greeting this year seems to be 'Happy Holidays' as opposed to Merry Christmas. Our development didn't even put out its traditional ornaments. I say, "Don't sweat it!" Next year, everything will probably be back to normal.

As a Jew, I just want to go on record as saying IT WASN'T US! We do not object to, nor are we offended by, "Merry Christmas." In centuries of living here in the US we have NEVER complained, I hope you've all noticed that.

It WASN'T US WHO COMPLAINED. Just want to say that officially.

******

Everyone is and has always been free to put religiously significant decorations [manger scenes et al] on their home property, of course all church properties, and all private business owners. Malls can do whatever they see fit to do.

I don't see why everyone's got their panties in a bunch because symbols of religious significance are kept out of public schools and government bldgs. They're still all over the place, don't worry!

And we Jews STILL don't object to that, may I repeat.

Cori, this Jew is going to second that. The people who mainly objected are across a spectrum in the United States and they object to everything. If I didn't know better, I would think they were really time traveling 17th Century Massachusetts Puritans. Just a bunch of spoil sports.

Was going to wish everyone A Very Merry Christmas but it's been storming here for days and my cable internet connection always goes out when that happens (despite ComCast's protestations that that just cannot happen - grumble,grumble....)

Well, now that I'm back on line and am too late for Christmas, I'll just wish everyone a Very Happy New Year!

Well Geraldine, you are just going to have to yell at Comcast, aren't you? Glad you made it on.
 
Re: Happy Christmas! by sighthound on 27 December 2005 12:34am
 
Yelling at Comcast doesn't seem to do anything as they have a monopoly in this area. I guess I'm just going to have to climb the poles and check the connections myself. Hmmmmmmm, thinking better of that idea now that I look at the poles.... Well, I guess you probably shouldn't expect me to reply to anything when there are storms in CA....
