I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or Look out for that wall! 

If that makes no sense to you just read the following cimment from Dave Barry on the PC-ness of wishing people Merry Christmas:

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

And, this Christmas and every other day I wish you PEACE.

  6. Well, I have always been a big Dave Barry fan, and I agree political correctness has been carried to a ridiculous extreme, so we might as well laugh about it.
    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Mary. Happy New Year, and may 2014 be a good one for you.
