Why should it matter? Non-believers celebrate Christmas everywhere, even in countries not majority Christian. It has become a secular holiday in many places in the world. What's not to like? Santa, lights, trees; in my family's home country, Norway, it is dark most of the day, so the trappings of Yule, merged with Christmas, are very important.
PS I don't celebrate Easter (or Lent) so I always tried to work on that Sunday so that others could have it off.
The war on Christmas is a myth, degage. Christmas itself has taken over the country, occupying 2 months of the year. It has become a retail orgy clothed in vaguely religious terms.

Thanks for demonstrating my point, maxie.
Easter as well, jesse! Can't have those pagans fornicating during the spring fertility festivals.
You are happy to be specific on why you think I am wrong, maxi, or behave like a 12 year old and look foolish. Your choice.
It is. Jesus was most likely born in the spring (April) not in December, based on details from scripture. The early church deliberately overlapped the existing midwinter festivals.
Oh, dear. I am so sorry, alprova. Wishing you a quick recovery.
Hi, degage! Sorry we missed you! We are not in a marina (the folks at the Moorings are very nice-we've stayed in their hotel before) We have a lot and dock up the river past the bridge. Because the river curves back, our lot is actually in town, walking distance to the IGA.
It's obvious someone has to get back on the kitchen, and that squares with my experience so far in using the website to find coverage in FL. But the only alternative I am hearing from the GOP to the ACA is Spam. Maybe with noodles. If they think the status quo should remain in place, they need to say so. If they have an alternative that's better, they should put it out there.
