More on the Happy Holidays "Controversy"

I just read a defining article in The Washington Post about the controversy over saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" (see last week's article here). The fact is, there is no conspiracy to remove the Christ from Christmas ... nor a conspiracy to eliminate Christmas as a holiday altogether. I highly recommend you read the article by Neely Tucker titled "Have a Holly, Jolly Holiday." (

The fact is -- and just a little bit of actual research shows this -- the controversy comes from a bit of hype from Fox News Channel, Libert Counsel, and the American Family Association. I'm sure they will downplay a story run in the supposed liberally biased WP, but honestly, the only ones running away from unbiased reporting is Fox News Channel and the league of conservative radio "journalists." Really, read the article. I dare you. Learn instead of just listen.

Happy holidays to you -- whether you celebrate Christmas, Hannakah, Kwanza, or some other holiday that occurs at this same time of the year. Especially if you're an Ebenezer Schrooge type looking for a way to mend your ways.
