Merry Christmas

Let us all be mellow on this eve of the Mass of Christ....

The pearl-clutching members of FFRF are now pounding the pavement to ban the above sentence because they have nothing better to do on Christmas Eve.

I do.

First of all, the real meaning of Christmas:


The first "Silent Night" was performed on Christmas Eve 1818 in Saint Nicholas' Church in Obendorff, Austria.

Christmas Eve in 1955 was actually warmer than now:

Christmas Eve 1955 was much warmer. Three fourths of the country was over 60 degrees, and Ashland Kansas,  Geary Oklahoma and Encinal Texas were all over 90 degrees. Fort Lauderdale was 85 degrees. All of the stations below were over 60 degrees on Christmas Eve, 1955.

Now, whatever your beliefs, Christmas is for everyone.

Do enjoy it.
