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.

sonofabeach 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.

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.

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

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.
