Christmas Parade

The mayor of Encinitas, Calif., is today's hero. Tired of all the politically correct nonsense, Dan Dalager has changed the name of the town's annual parade back to the Christmas Parade. Woo-hoo.
"There is a Christian holiday called Christmas that is celebrated in churches, and there is a Christian holiday called Christmas that is about Santa Claus and reindeer and snowmen and getting together with family and friends and having parades and all this stuff. We are celebrating the American holiday called Christmas."
Anyone who doesn't like it can sue and prepare for a court hearing at 6 a.m., Friday, Dec. 25, to prove standing in the case (that way city officials don't have to show up).
This is not about forcing a religion down the throats of anyone in a secular society. This is a recognition of the reality that some want to distort.
It is Christmas. Call it what it is or Santa will leave a lump of coal in your stocking.
He follows my Canadian Hero who earlier this week got Boston to call its Christmas tree a Christmas Tree.

  1. Nice. I wish others would follow suit.

  2. We watched Polar Express on Thanksgiving -- if after watching that you don't believe -- you have no heart or soul. It's not about Santa and presents, about faith and friendship and believing in something no matter what anyone says.
