'Tis the season?
I preface this by stating that I am not being anti-Semitic with my rant today. The occasion is purely coincidental.
I have a niece who is learning-disabled. She attends both individual and group therapy sessions every month.
The other day, she came home with the calendar of events for December. Aside from the usual times and dates for group sessions and special outing (like a trip to Radio City for the Rockettes), a few things leapt out from the page:
December 7 - Hanukkah Begins
December 15 - Hanukkah Ends
December 26 - Kwanzaa Begins
Hmmmm,.......missing a few things? Well, read on, dear friends:
December 24 - Good Friday
December 25 - Holiday - Nothing Scheduled
I will let on to you that she attends these sessions in a suburban town that typifies Blue Stater Hell and the Neo-Socialist movement, so it shouldn't come as a big surprise that they, like most Neo-Socs, are systematically trying to eliminate any religious behavior in this country, in favor of a humanist society. Specifically, the Neo-Socs are going after Christmas because its a major symbol of Christianity and Christianity is (still) the largest religious element in this country.
As for me? Well, I'm putting on Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Christmas Eve Sarajevo."
