Merry Christmas to all!

I take it as a positive sign that the "Christmas wars" of the last few years seem to have deescalated this year. Christmas can have a contemporary, secular meaning as well as the traditional, religious meaning, and there should be no reason for anyone to take offense at sincere wishes for happy holidays, whatever it may be called: Hannukah, Eid, or even Kwanza.

May all men and women of kind and gentle spirits be blessed during this season of joy.
