Happy Christmas Eve

As we’re determinedly politically incorrect, we wish everyone a Merry Christmas Eve. Not for us the generic, ecumenical  “Happy Holidays.” Christmas as practiced in modern North America was originally religious, but today is available to all.

To be sure, if you are Christian, celebrate the birth of the faith’s founder. If you aren’t, the music, the decorations, the food, the drink, the fellowship, and the family gatherings are very fine indeed, and accessable to us all. It is Winter Fair, and we call it “Christmas.” 

Enjoy, and hold a fond thought for the Christians who created our version of this happy tradition.
