Sure sounds like CHRISTMAS! Hanukkah 2012 begins on Saturday evening but I'm pretty sure Mr. and Mrs. Clause are not part of that party! Who are the MISSES Clause? Santa's daughters? Sisters?

But it's good to see that the "War on Christmas" season has started.

"There will be a chance to meet Santa Clause"

Apparently the author or spell check likes Santa Claus to include an E on the end.

I'm not as familiar with the other traditions during this time of year as I am with Christmas. I see where there will be a Santa/Grinch/gingerbread house. What is the reasoning behind not just calling it Christmas festivities?

They could be; I have never seen Santa and Misses Clause. Do you think there is a family resemblance?

Because not everyone celebrates Christmas.

No, I think Santa was playing behind the wood pile.

Christmas is no more than a capitalist abortion of Christs birth. Not even celebrated until the 1800's in Europe then brought over here to the world of profit and loss.

Actually, the celebrations occuring in last December began about 1800 years ago but of course the reasons and methods of celebrating have evolved over the years. It can still be a nice time of year without going on a spending bender.

My thought....if you don't want to celebrate...don't, but don't try and interfere with my party and if you are celerating at this time of year and not celebrating Christmas, pray tell, exactly what are you celebrating? If you say Happy Holidays to me, I reply with Merry Christmas.

Well, his name was Jesus, so I'm sure there is one of those born every day in Mexico, and they can't make up their minds when he was born so who knows? Besides even if there's just one he must be psychotic, he make uo his mind if we're going to heaven or hades.

That's allowed. I did not intend for there to be long line of dots in my statement. The intent was; if you are celebrating at this time of year with decorations, gifts, a tree, a Crèche display, but not calling it Christmas, then what are you calling it?

And I'm telling you it's not your job to approve or disapprove of what I call it. You should have learned that in church at some point.

Churches are about obedience, towing the line and the subjugation of women, least of which is learning.
