In Search of Christmas

Here’s a really good article from 2004 by John Leo of U.S. News & World Report: In Search of Christmas.

He describes the offenses committed against those who celebrate Christmas by two major retailers in New York City, and summarizes a few other incidents in public schools, etc.  Here are two brief quotes:

Harold Johnson, attorney for the Pacific Legal Foundation, said, ‘Administrators who try to make their schools Christmas-free zones are either constitutional illiterates or cowards in the face of PC bullies, or pushing personal agendas that have no grounding in the law.’

Jill Stewart, a California-based columnist, says her state’s ‘intolerance toward Christmas is just another reason why Californians and residents of other blue states are viewed by the heartland crowd as hostile, godless types who can’t stand regular folks.’  Stewart is not religious, but in protest against anti-Christmas campaigns, she says she will skip saying ‘Happy Holidays’ at Christmas parties this year and just wish everyone ‘Merry Christmas.’

If you’re from New York, or have visited Macy’s or Bloomingdale’s this month, be sure to leave a comment to let us know if things have gotten better or worse over the last 3 years.
