Katie and Sharp. I am surprised to hear you both say that as you are both Canadian. I thought XMAS was only being attacked in the U.S. I am Jewish. I think Hanukkah is cool, but since I was a little kid I have loved and enjoyed XMAS. I love the tradition, the XMAS carols, the tree, Santa Claus, Rudolph, and most importantly the good will to all mankind. I like everything about XMAS; although I will admit by the time it's over I am glad it has come and gone. lol. What a shame. It is under attack in the U.S. and it is an even greater disappointment to find it is under attack elsewhere. To me XMAS is a season to be enjoyed by everyone. It has nothing to do with religion.


Right on, B. I grew up with Christmas being a huge deal in elementary and high school. Every year I performed Christmas carols and hymns in the choir. I remember wishing the Jewish kids could join us in the fun, not as a religious observation but ... just because it was a whole month of fun!

But when my daughter was in elmentary school, all they ever did was put on "Holiday concerts" and sing Rudolph and Silver Bells and Winter Wonderland. The principals, through the years, always repeated the tired old excuse that they eliminated Christmas in order not to offend all the other diverse cultures represented by children in the school.

Well, today we know ... that was just wrong.

I'm not religious but I am spritual and I know about Moses and Christ and Buddha and Ganesh, Vishnu and the Festival of Lights called Diwali. I know about Kwanzaa and Chinese New Year and I wish, as a Christmas celebrator, that all cultures could cover their world in little sparkling, coloured lights, if not for Christ, then just for the sheer joy of joining us in making the winter beautiful for December and early January.

An acquaintance of mine expressed anger at the neuvo term "Christmukah" or "Hannimas." She said it was sacriligious. But I think it's the first time I've noticed a concentrated effort in tolerating and even embracing two popular celebrations this time of year! That's a good thing.


About a mile from where I live there is a church that I can only guess due to finances entered into an agreement with a group of Jewish people which allows each to use it on their day of worhsip which rarely if ever conflicts. Jews go to temple on Sat. on Christians worship on Sun. I jokingly call it the "Churple." I see nothing wrong with it and it seems to be working as it has existed like this for at least five years.

After making a purchase one day last wk a sales clerk wished me "Happy Holidays". I turned to her, smiled and said, "Thank you, Merry Christmas."
I have discussed this with many people, some Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Christians, Catholics...all are of the same mind...Christmas should be Christmas, Hannakah is Hannakah ... Both have been part of the Canadian and American culture forever. It is part of our Heritage, and it feels like we are losing that. I don't know about other Canadians, but I do know if asked what specifically identifies Canadian Culture...it's a difficult question. French Canadians have a distinct identity, but the rest of us are losing it. We can't afford to lose Christmas. Once Christmas is gone, what's next on the hit list...Easter? I feel it is an infringement on my rights. And I think it infringes on a greater number of people's rights, than those who have been fighting to rid of us Christmas. They at the moment, have just been making their voices heard. This has been creeping up slowly, and the rest of us have taken notice and talked about it. But because it has been gradual, we've not stood up and let our collective voices be heard in support!

Thanks Keith aka BobbyB. The first thing I'd do is declare Christmas a legitimate holiday in Toronto again, like in the good old days when we said Merry Christmas to everyone ... before it became just Happy Holidays.

I'd vote for you Pete!

I think we ought to prop Cub up as a figurehead political leader and we could all just be his advisers behind the scenes.

Just think, We'd have all the fun and graft and corruption, and when we get caught, we just abscond and run and leave him holding the bag!

Ditto katie...I felt a little offended the other day when a sales clerk said to me "Happy Holidays". What does that mean? We have all kinds of holidays...will this become just another day...we can call it the "December long weekend"!

Thanks Bobby.

But the first thing I'd do if elected Mayor would be to ask for a recount.
