Still, I admit understanding why there are those nervous about Nativity scenes and the like at the workplace, in public schools, or on government property. True, there's the dual interpretation of the First Amendment with those championing free speech on one side, those pointing to the Separation of Church and State on the other. But I do think the primary message of such public statements is for believers to say, Christmas is ours. All others – I suppose they get a lump of coal in their stockings? Or are haunted by a Victorian ghost of Christmas past?
So in the spirit of the season, I say Christmas is for everyone, nice, naughty, Scrooge and Tiny Tim alike. So why fear saying so? Merry Christmas! If it wasn't so cold outside, I'd find a toga and really get into the festive spirit. Then, we can get ready for the Spring Solstice when the Easter Bunny comes out of hibernation. Unless they declare war on him first.
