Relief from Department Store Music

In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'
Dave Barry, writer

Jethro Tull's "A Christmas Song"

"Father Christmas" by The Kinks (the quality is a bit lacking)

I work in a busy office of 50+ people, and we get cards in by the deluge this time of year. So far, not one single "Happy Christmas!", they're ALL "Happy Holidays", which is odd, we're all FAR too PC lately.
I just want one Happy Christmas, even though you know I'm not a Christian.
It just annoys me how pc we all have become! ;-)

Happy Hannukah!
