   Hard to believe we're already into the final week before Christmas...  Time flies when you're gettin' old!

   In America, we have a near logjam of holidays from late November through early January.  It used to be understood that "Happy Holidays" and "Season's Greetings" were shorthand for "Happy Thanksgiving, Feast of Nicholas, Hanukkah, Christmas Eve/Day, Boxing Day/Feast of Stephen, New year's Eve/Day, and Epiphany!"

   Now when you say "Happy Holidays" and "Season's Greetings", many people think you're doing it to avoid saying "Christmas".   Sad state of affairs the PC police have brought upon us, 'tis.

   So MERRY CHRISTMAS to all, and a prosperous New Year to come!
