Christmas Bullies

Fundamentalists are fundamentally overpowering

Yule be sorry!

These are the folks who show their Christmas spirit by cursing and berating anyone who dares say “Seasons Greetings” or “Happy Holidays” despite wide agreement by Bible scholars that December 25th is not the birth date of Jesus of Nazareth. It is a date co-opted by many Christians to add a Christian celebration to the already popular pagan hoopla at the time of the post-winter-solstice increase in daylight hours. In ancient times many virgins in line for the volcano were spared by this return of the sun. Still, Christmas is a lot of fun for many folks – some of whom think Santa Claus is, in fact, God. So to those bullies who can’t stand folks who say “Seasons Greetings” or “Happy Holidays” we adopt a very Christian forgiveness by saying “Merry Christmas to you – and we hope you are not selected for the volcano this year.”
