To all my loyal readers (except for one in Brighton who abuses all available goodwill):
Have a Merry, Merry Christmas. And of course remember the reason for the season -- the birth of Christ.
So if you are a secular-liberal smug multicultural atheist with pretensions toward science and warmed-over Buddhist inclinations willing to be hemorrhoid take a deep breath and let the majority of us celebrate Christmas.
And, if you are a still-recovering utopian from the Sixties with all that crypto-Marxist baggage still lodged in your feebled brain, get a life and let people enjoy their Christmas holiday without the sterile, insipid intrusions disguised as religious liberty.
Meanwhile, high holidays deserve all the bombast the Trans Siberian Orchestra can muster up.
Take that Richard Dawkins.
