The other day I was picking some stuff up from my dry cleaners and we were talking a little about the season, and the woman behind the counter asked “do you celebrate Christmas?” I said I did, so I was busy looking for presents and the like, and I asked her if she did, and she said no (it turns out she is Turkish). I like that people are comfortable talking about whether or not they celebrate Christmas, though this was in Brighton, a suburb of Rochester that has a large Jewish population, so it’s probably not typical.
Is the war on Christmas stuff about telling Muslim and Jewish Americans to suck on this? Or is it just about pissing off liberals? A twofer? I honestly don’t understand.
