T Minus Five Days and Counting!

This reporter must confess that it's looking bad for Christmas. Sure, a recent Rasmussen poll shows that most people consider Christmas to be the most important holiday of the year, but in Britian, most kids don't even know it's a celebration of Jesus' birthday! Plus, American Apparel has declared war on it!

Betty Bowers reports that the war at Macy's could be going better [although I feel much better knowing America's Best Christian is on the front lines!]. Then this writer maintains the War which has been killing and maiming so many of the faithful is a fiction!

Finally, just yesterday, a major American corporation sent out this email to its employees [full disclosure: I work for this major American corporation]:

Happy Hanukkah!
Come to the Winter Holiday Multicultural Festival
[time and location redacted]
Learn about the religious histories and customs of Chanukah, Christmas, Diwali, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, Las Posadas, the Epiphany, St. Nicholas Day, St. Lucia Day and others.

They didn't even mention Christmas first! And what kind of header is "Happy Hanukkah!" And then there's this article about multiculturism!

Continuing my despair, it turns out two television stations have started fighting each other over who will have the best Yule Log show on Christmas day. First of all, the Yule Log is a pagan tradition. Second of all, they are fighting over Christmas! As if we don't have enough trouble with the pinko commie SecProg SP SecHums liberal Godless atheists to contend with, we have this battle to deal with.

I was heartened to see that the Polar Express train in New Hampshire is running, but they call it a "Holiday" event! Why are they going to the North Pole for a 'holiday'. It's Christmas, people! Christmas!!

And there is more bad news:
- A man in Britian has erected an obscene Christmas tree!
-Christmas punch has been banned in Vienna!
- Father Guido Sarducci is trying for the title of 'Worst Christmas Song Ever'. [Why, Father? You are a religious man! Why?!]
- Disney tells a white bearded man to stop playing Santa Claus:
- Another Santa kidnaps a child!
- Meanwhile, people all over the world are celebrating Festivus this Saturday. It's just a made up holiday! Why would people all agree to celebrate something made up?

Finally, Moby blogs about his view on the War on his MySpace page. If the musicians and creative people are not with us on the War, we have no hope.

It's a dark day indeed...
