'Tis the season to be jolly...
Especially when news of such irony as the clash between Xtians and Wal-Mart reaches one's attention. It seems Wal-Mart has decided the proper way to greet customers this time of year is to use the phrase "happy holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas". Certain Xtians have been objecting to this, citing it as a secularization of Xmas, but since the more zealot Xtians have been deriding the commercialization of Xmas for a number of years now you'd think they'd be glad to see an attempt on the part of merchants to make their sales techniques less exploitive of that particular holiday. Or, at least, less blatantly an exploitation of that holiday.
