We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all my readers and fellow bloggers!

A few of the articles I posted last year with Christmas themes are getting a lot of hits this year. It just goes to show how perennial Christmas themes are.

The most popular articles are these:

Charlottesville Christmas ornaments
Is There an Anti-Christmas Conspiracy?

OK, Perhaps the Anti-Christmas Attitude Has Gone Too Far

Return of Aluminum Christmas Trees?

Worst Christmas Song Ever?


A Moral Case for Christmas Commercialism
That last one seems to get a lot of attention, even a few comments. My point then and now is that complaints about the commercialization and commodification of Christmas are neither new nor warranted, and that we should celebrate the free enterprise system that allows us, in turn, to celebrate Christmas -- or Hanukkah, or Chrismukkah, or even Festivus -- the way each of us wishes to do so.

In any case (even though Neal Boortz says every time someone says this an elf dies), Happy Holidays, one and all!
