It's been a rather busy last few days. I just got home in time to do a bit of shopping before the holidays. As I was out and about, it continually struck me, just how imagined the "War on Christmas" really is.
When driving, I tend to listen to classical music. The St Louis station (99.1 FM) declared itself "The spirit of St Louis Christmas". At Borders, the cashier wished me a "Merry Christmas" and I didn't punch him in the face or sue him (like good atheists are supposed to I suppose). At Best Buy, a large sign hung from the ceiling wishing shoppers a "Merry Christmas." Most of the churches I drove past on the way home had out their nativity displays.
So merry and a happy New Year!
