Happy Hanakwanzamas!

I've always thought actions to prevent public schools from recognizing specific holidays--my mother-in-law's elementary school (she's a Principal) is required to celebrate "Fall Festival" rather than "Halloween", for example ... admonishing teachers to not acknowledge Christmas is another--was a bunch of hypersensitive bullshit.

Today Charley over at The State of the Beehive supports this belief, but does so with some fancy legal mumbo jumbo that makes me feel even better about my gut-reaction hypothesis: that a culture diluted to the lowest common denominator reduces itself to the lowest common denominator.

So, Merry Friggin' Christmas ... and Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, and whatever "Winter Festival" you might celebrate.

Nice. You left out St Paul's Winter Carnival you insensitive {SUU unorthodox, popular yet tragically untenured professor explitive}. I lived next door in Minneapolis for 15 years and managed to miss it every single year. Drank a helluvalotta Summit Beer though.
