It’s Merry Christmas, Dammit!

22 Oct

Here’s today’s COMMENT FROM AN OLD FART: Moi dropped by the dollar store today to find out what is happin in the world of the peeps. The dollar store has Christmas stuff out already. Say what? It’s not even Thanksgiving yet. That got moi thinking about tolerance and what all those P.C. folks define as tolerance. Usually, it means my way or the highway. Here is a definition of tolerance:

tol·er·ance

noun

1.

a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc., differ from one’s own; freedom from bigotry.

2.

a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions and practices that differ from one’s own.  http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/tolerance

Notice the emphasis on “permissive.”

Moi really doesn’t have any problems celebrating any person’s holiday which has a buffet attached and if your holiday has a wine toast, moi is there early and well help you set-up. Moi is secure in what she believes so she can wish you a Happy Chanukah (Hanukkah), Eid, Festivus, Happy Birthday Madeline Murray O’Hair, and Happy My Dog Looks Cute, whatever. It is all about wishing the other person the best.

This is the definition of holiday:

hol·i·day

noun

1.

a day fixed by law or custom on which ordinary business is suspended in commemoration of some event or in honor of some person.

2.

any day of exemption from work ( distinguished from working day).

3.

a time or period of exemption from any requirement, duty, assessment, etc.: New businesses may be granted a one-year tax holiday.http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/holiday

This is the definition of Christmas:

n.

1. A Christian feast commemorating the birth of Jesus.

2. December 25, the day on which this feast is celebrated.

3. Christmastide.

So, businesses and others who want to remove Christ from Christmas are more than happy to make most of their year’s profits from a festival while denying the reason for the celebration. If someone is so unhinged as to not be tolerant, should we tolerate their attitude?

Moi loves Christmas, it should have trees, lights, and glitter. If one wants to throw in a Menorah, Crescent, and Uncle Festus, that is fine. Just put lights on them. Christmas should look like Vegas.

The great thing about being an OLD FART is folks know one is politically incorrect a great deal of the time. So, Merry Christmas, Dammit.
