The War on Christmas
I think the whole thing is without any basis. I could care less if department stores put up kwanzaa trees (fake holiday created by a FBI snitch by the way) or opts to say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. What I find patently absurd is this business of putting up Christmas decorations so damn early. The mall by my work had a massive tree up the first week of November. When I was a kid (some would argue I still qualify as such) trees and decorations didn't go up till the first day of advent (after Thanksgiving). It just makes the holiday that much more crass. If I have to hear John Gibson or Bill O'Reilly harrumphing about the secular Nazis among us trying to subvert Christians in their celebrations of Christmas, ostensibly by using the wrong greeting, I will vomit. If those mental pygmies would like to do some good they would be well advised to go to their local macy's and browbeat them into taking down their decorations and not replacing them till advent. Curmudgeonly rant over!
