Happy Holidays

Please know that I don’t say “happy holidays” only to irritate the folks who have nothing better to do than be irritated by something this stupid.

But there are a lot of holidays at this time of year, aren’t there?  No matter what your reason for buying presents, everybody the world over gets a New Year at about this same time each and every year.  So lighten up, folks.  Jump for joy.


I got this from Father Kane at The Last of the Milleniums, of course.

I plan to just keep watching this little guy until 2020.

    Happy holidays to you Elyse! (as well as John and Jacob, oh and your puppy [whose name escapes me])!

  5. The nice thing about saying “happy holidays” is that anyone who doesn’t like the phrase is free not to be happy over the holidays. I mean, they have a choice if they want it.

  7. It looks like a Hillary voter, just after crossing the Canadian border. Happy holidays, Elyse!

  8. Yeah, I think way too many people get upset about others not saying Merry Christmas, yet barely anyone gets upset about others not wishing them Happy Martin Luther King’s day.

  9. Do you think there’s even a remote chance we are still in a nightmare and will wake up? As for the happy, I don’t think anyone should get upset about any single word. Isn’t it the thought and caring that counts even if there is a misstep?

    • Do I think that there is a remote chance? No — but since I feel rather hopeless otherwise, that thought keeps me going. Eventually I will adjust to the new reality. And in fact, I feel it my moral obligation to pay attention — especially when Trump first gets into office. Because that is when they will try to ram things through like repealing Obamacare and changing Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. I will be sick of my own voice!

      As to the “Happy,” you’re right. Nobody says you can’t say “merry Christmas” — but some people don’t. It’s not an f’ing crime people!!!! It is absolutely, as you pointed out, the kind thoughts and the caring that are behind the greeting. Some people need to get lives!

  10. I just say “Have a happy!” year round. It’s the only truly one-size-fits-all I’ve ever found.

    • Good for you. I never understood why some people have to get bent out of shape over such stupid things!


      • As a proud atheist drowning for forty-seven years in a nationwide sea of Christian symbols and mores, blatant academic and administrative collusion, and unremitting social pressure to conform at every level that is harder to unpack and demystify than rape culture to a male Fox News executive, I’d be happy to explain it to you. Have a happy!

  11. I can’t help but pair this with the Looney Tunes Pepé Le Pew music in my head as I watch the little guy bound around, which I consider a bonus.

  15. That little guy is going to be me–in about thirty minutes when I’m done wrapping the last of my presents. Phew!
