Merry Christmas To All

How great – a doggie nativity! I cant even imagine how hard this was to arrange!

And a similarly doggie themed video short.

"CHRISTMAS has a special meaning for those of us who are Christians, those of us who believe in Christ, those of us who know that almost 2,000 years ago, the Son of Peace was born." -- President Carter, Christmas 1977
Today's leftists would probably pummel him for that quote. Yet not long ago, we all celebrated the Spirit of Christmas--even those of other faiths. This is why I don't say "Happy Holidays."
"I find it appalling when people say it's politically incorrect to talk about Christmas, you've got to talk about 'The Holiday Season.' Christmas was a time of family warmth and love. There was a feeling of forgiveness, acceptance. And I do believe in Father Christmas." -- Greg Lake
A local shop owner was told by a customer that he should wish people "Happy Holidays," not "Merry Christmas." She said he might offend people. He replied, "If there wasn't a Christmas, there wouldn't be a holiday, so Merry Christmas."
That is especially true this year. While the Jewish Chanukkah does often overlap Christmas, this year by a quirk of the lunar calendar it was nearly a month before. (And may all of Jewish faith have had a wonderful time then.)

And in that spirit, the ever goofy Tom Lehrer.
