You know all these people supposedly incensed over the phrase "Happy Holidays"? They should just shut their yaps because they're forgetting that Christmas is anything BUT merry.

When you boil it down Christmas is only about the celebration of the birth of Christ, not about toys or trees or twinkly little lights. Just Jesus. Christians should instead be insisting everyone call it a "Pious Christmas" or a "Faithful Christmas" but that's not as marketable as "Merry Christmas".

The "happy" part of "Happy Holidays", on the other hand, is mostly borrowed from the pagans. You know, the feasting, decorating, gift-giving stuff.

As for Fox News' Megyn Kelly, who so famously opined that both Santa and Jesus were not only real but possessed of a radiant skin tone similar to her own pinkish hue, let me just say that while I have my doubts about the historical realitiy of those two characters I definitely know that Hitler and Stalin were both white, too. So if you're gonna claim the good white people, Megan, you little racist twat, you gotta take 'em all.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
