I am mildly annoyed that my kids and I missed the Christmas tree lighting. The info we had was that it was going to be at city hall. We were there with about 20 other folks who had the same info standing outside city hall with no tree or activity in sight.

Merry Christmas ta all my friends.

An fer my non-Christian friends, Merry Christmas ta ya as well. If ya have a problem with me wishin ya well on th Christmas holidays, that's really yer problem. Or would ya rather me say, "Hope ya have a miserable time over this holiday season?"

Get over it. Christ was not born on December 25th anyway. It's just th time of year most intelligent people celebrate his birth. Do any of ya honestly thank that he was born at th time of year people outside, like the shepherds, would die from exposure from the bitter cold of December in Bethlehem?

Christmas program, Christmas pageant. Christmas punch, Christmas dinner. I guess I am a racist even though I don't see how race has anything what so ever to do with it other than, if you are a Christ believer, AKA Christian, you understand, or at least should understand that Christ came and became the sacrifice for all of humanity regardless of their sex or ethnicity, AKA all races.
