Attack of the Killer Sock-Eaters

Why is there often only one sock? WHY?

Merry Christmas, darnit.

In this time of peace, joy, and goodwill, I have HAD it. The constant barrage of hostility towards anything Christian (from Manger scenes to Christmas trees) is beginning to wear my spirits thin. As far as I know, there are only two major religions that have major holidays at this time, so let's stop acting as though wishing someone a Merry Christmas is akin to dragging out a copy of the Bill of Rights and stepping all over the First Amendment. The majority of the citizens of this country practice some form of Christianity, and there are very few people of ANY religion (or lack thereof) who will be offended by someone offering them a greeting that carries with it wishes of peace, joy, and happiness. So, please, pour balm upon my bruised spirits and wish me a merry Christmas, or, if you are of the Jewish faith, a happy Chanukah. Accept my religiously-affiliated greeting in the spirit in which it was given, and stop worrying about whether or not celebrating the birth of Jesus is politically correct.
