From The Perennial Rambler
Bah, humbug!
Seriously I love Christmas and as I’ve written here Catholics accept everything about Hanukkah but of course the modern secular Western celebration of Christmas has its faults. The Rambler out-curmudgeons and out-bitters me in criticizing them.

From The Onion
This year’s recalled Christmas toys
I won’t call them ‘holiday toys’ (and what the eff is a ‘holiday tree’, the Soviet New Year’s ёлка with the red five-pointed star on top?) as gifts aren’t part of New Year’s and they’re not really what Hanukkah is about either (it’s lighting candles and chanting Hebrew at home, full stop).

From Fr Joseph Huneycutt
Quotation
Christians have been told their faith is represented in the season by Christmas trees and snowflake displays. If frozen water pellets represent my faith, should I genuflect before the icemaker in my refrigerator?
- Tim Chavez

Abuse notwithstanding, again I see the place of secular songs and decorations to include Jews and others but it is going too far, Soviet style.
