I say Merry Christmas even thought I'm not religeous. It's nice spending time with family and I like any holiday that gives me a paid day off work.

Since Christmas is now a commercial holiday, Merry Christmas works for most folks. Happy Holidays works better in our melting pot as more and more folks are either Jewish, Hindu, Taoist, Buddhist or non religious and the religious connotations that some give a holiday that has been around longer than Christ makes it all that more confusing.

So I go with Happy Holidays and all my Jewish, Hindu, Muslim and Buddhist friends know they are included. And the party is always on Winter Solstice.

I agree, a few people throw a fit and they try to change it for everyone. Has and always will be Merry Christmas from me.

Well, December the 25th is still CHRISTmas until they "officially" take it away. Call it holiday all you want but on that day we've "in todays culture" made it Christmas. I can't argue that many have lost sight but if it becomes something else than we Christians will celebrate Christ's birth during the real time of the year, summer. Then we will give this time of the year back to the pagan gods.

That's the point. Everyone should be able to celebrate THEIR holiday as THEY wish. Yes, December 25 is Christmas Day. And that is the Christian Holiday. But there are all sorts of holidays throughout this "holiday season", depending on your religion, nationality or beliefs.

Some of us don't just celebrate on one day, we celebrate the season. We celebrate the rebirth of nature, of family, of togetherness, of parties, of that one time of year when most folks, whether Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist, Native American or Pagan all look at the positive. And that is a good thing.

So, tonight, with the first lunar eclipse to coincide with Winter Solstice in over 500 years, expect to see some interesting celebrations of the passing of the darkest day. Personally, I will be trying to find clear skies to shoot pix of the eclipse, hopefully on top of the Smoky Mountains if the weather cooperates, if not, further south.

I agree with you and am looking forward to the lunar eclipse as well.

Fighting about whether we say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays" is a sign that we are a country with a true shortage of things to get upset about.

Drop some money in the kettle today. There are people who really truly have better things to worry about.

It's now become laughable that some people get offended when you say "Happy Holidays".
People have been saying "Happy Holidays" for years.
Heck, there's an old Christmas song named Happy Holidays and it's mentioned in countless songs.....it's true..google it....but who really cares anyway?
I'm suprised that people don't get offended that the "Christ" in "Christmas" isn't even pronounced the way his name is.

Like food.

Forty years ago my Scout troop delivered food to folks up in the hollows [OK, hollers] of Eastern Kentucky. The cars went as far as they could and we hiked the food up the rest of the way. One of the best lessons I ever learned.

Now, forty years later it seems that I will be delivering food to other folks in similar hollers though this time I will be driving the Scouts up with the Jeep.

In a country that can put a man on the moon or design a financial scheme that leverages $Trillions of dollars on what seems like $12.29 worth of securities, one would have thought we would have figured out poverty and hunger by now.

And to those who somehow believe that they are "just lazy", meet me in Harlan County and drive up those hollers with me. Your mind will change.

I joke about Axial Tilt being the Reason for the Season. It is making kids smile. And kids who are scraping by, for no reason of their own, to see them smile, if just once a year is worth it. Give til it hurts.
