Oh I love a good fat jolly Santa Claus and of course some candy canes! I do celebrate the Claus without the Christ, it's one of my favorite made up traditions. So happy Santa Day to all those who relish the big guy, well, the big RED and Jolly guy that is.

I can't wait for Easter Bunny season.

I usually just say Danistahohihv which is pronounced Dah-nees-dah-hoe-hee-huh... Which means Merry Christmas in Tsalagi...

I like the sound of Cool Yule. And saying Merry Eksmas makes me laugh; maybe I'll say that. Or "May Santa bring you wealth of spirit" or something equally puzzling.

"happy holidays" does derive from "Happy Holy Days" so it is odd that any theists take too much offence to it.

As a depressed and miserable loner, I must register my objections to all cheerful holiday greetings, secular or religious. Constantly having strangers confronting me with demands to have a happy this or a merry that violates my right to choose to be disconsolate, discontented and tormented by existential angst at all times.

You shouldn't have to put up with that.

Have a good night.
