    Happy Days
    By R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., American Spectator
    December 28, 2006

    ...have you noticed this past week that we have not heard as many greetings of "Happy New Year" as we might have heard in the past? Why might that be? Well, the bullies have settled on "Have a Happy Holiday" as the preferred greeting, and they will tell you that not everyone celebrates New Year at this time. The Chinese have their own new year as do the Moslems and the Jews. So it is a good bet that in the years to come "Happy New Year" will have gone the way of "Merry Christmas." Yet as 2006 expires, and 2007 stands in the threshold, allow me to wish you all "Happy New Year." It might be the last time I can do so politely.

    I think the use of A.D. to demarcate our calendar is in jeopardy as well. :cuckoo: :evil: :sad:

    I agree. I teach the kids the new nomenclature, but point out the pcness of it all.
