Not to be a whiner

but do we really have to make December a month of thumbs up or thumbs down to those who celebrate (or don't celebrate) it's many feasts and events? There, IMO, is just no more to be said or other ways to say what's been hashed and rehashed to pieces. How about just let it pass without dredging up the same old political controversies and spoiling it for all? Happy

if you set the proper tone, it is never hard to do. unfortunately if I read or see a christmas card with a dig attached; something is going back to the sender. too many layers to turn other cheek.

the war on christmas is an overblown media event as far as I am concerned. fodder for the reindeer.

as you know in an open forum all you can do is express your opinion. avoid the controversial topics. see what happens.

that is why I sincerely thought glenda's post had merit.

I am sure you will enjoy the holidays with your family and friends. everyone here in the woods wishes you and yours a merry christmas and a pleasant new year.

That's OK. Whine away. :-)

Whatever or however people do or do not celebrate in December should not give them permission to sully how others do or don't.

I can stand corrected, but I think that all of the feasts concentrate on good wishes, a lifting of spirits, a coming together of family and friends, some personal introspection, holding to traditions, and good works. "The spirit of the season", if you will.

A Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season to you and yours.
