    By 2-to-1 Margin, Americans Prefer 'Merry Christmas' Over 'Happy Holidays'
    December 22, 2011 - Americans overwhelmingly prefer the traditional “Merry Christmas” greeting over the “Happy Holidays” that some stores and businesses require their employees to utilize at this time of year.

    U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Pays Homage to Obama — But Not Jesus
    December 19, 2011 - The 63-foot Sierra White Fir lighted at the U.S. Capitol Grounds on Dec. 6 as the official 2011 Capitol Christmas Tree includes a prominently displayed ornament paying homage to President Barack Obama, but includes no ornament readily visible to a person standing near the tree's base that uses the word “Christmas,” or includes an image of the Nativity, or bears the name or image of Jesus Christ.

    Remember that Christmas, like all holidays, is also a time for you to rest and pamper yourself; and it does not matter whether you are with people or by yourself. Relax and enjoy some moment of aloneness this wonderful Christmas Season!

    I went out and got myself a few Christmas gifts to enjoy this evening.
    A pint o' whiskey, a box of Chuckles candy, and a Chicago Tribune.

    Well, hope you had yourself a very Merry Little Christmas (though I share not your idea of enjoyment)!

    Continue to rest and pamper yourself this Holiday Season. Forget not that holidays are an opportunity for you to recoup, not time to worry or sink in sadness. Thus, manage your time wisely and enjoy yourself!

    When we were kids, the black Chuckles piece was my older brother's favorite.
    But when I asked for it he always gave it to me. And it was always the one in the middle and he had to fish for it. A good sentimental memory.
