Not for haters

It's that time of the year again. Yes, it's time for all the Christian-haters to slither out from under their rocks and bring lawsuits against anything that has to do with Christmas.

Bringing lawsuits against manger scenes, pressuring schools to have “holiday” programs and “holiday” recess and intimidating politicians to declare “Sparkle Season” and “The Unity Tree” are all parts of their plan to destroy Christmas.

They also proclaim that Christ's birth is just a myth and should not be celebrated. Therefore, I ask these zealots to do the following.

Since, according to them, Christmas never happened, they should not take part in any Christmas sales or take Christmas off, and if they are fortunate enough to get a Christmas bonus, they should turn it down.

They of course will not do this, because they are cowards. But in the spirit of the season, I will still wish them a merry and blessed Christmas.
