    I got my first "Merry Christmas" said to me yesterday

    The lady bagging our groceries at the grocery store said it. She said it with a defiant look in her eyes and she wasn't smiling. My husband and I couldn't even respond because it felt like she was daring us to say something else. So we just both stared at her.

    It made me very sad.


    And this smartass chimes in...

    Merry Christmas to you as well. Or Happy Hanukkah, whichever you prefer.

    Bottom line, this is a greeting meant sincerely.

    It took until December 10th?

    I've been saying Merry Christmas since July 5th. That's the start date of the season on my war on the war on Christmas.
    Be Not Afraid.

    I said "Merry Christmas" to the survey taker just before the election when he called my Mom's house during dinner. Mom doesn't answer unknown callers. So I pretended to be an easily led female octogenarian until the last minute when I told them I didn't know who to vote for and wished them a Merry Christmas.

    Thanks. I celebrate Christmas, but I figure the other holiday is still part of Christian history.

    Actually, it is if you're Catholic and your bible contains the books Maccabees I and II. Chanukah can be seen as part of your Old Testament background. (Protestant bibles stop at Hosea, I believe, and usually don't contain the books of Maccabees or consider them apocryphal.) The Maccabees (Hasmonean dynasty) ruled Judea for about 100 years or so, until internal division and the intervention of Pompey eventually brought the area under Roman rule. Christ was born about 40 years after the fall of the last Maccabees (Aristobulus and his brother John Hyrcanus), and about 30 years or so after Christ's Crucifixion, Judea erupted in full scale war against the Romans in the first Jewish uprising (AD 66).
