Merry Christmas!

i've been hit with the 'holiday' wand this year at work, magically putting me in charge of all things “holiday”: the department party at a local country club, office tree trimming, egg nog, warm cider...i'm getting frazzled with having to use politically correct verbiage everywhere. i’ve organized a 'holiday tree trimming party' for tomorrow morning, where co-workers each bring in one ornament to decorate the office tree. since I’m not allowed to call it a Christmas Tree, which makes me go, “Grrrr” since THAT’S WHAT IT IS, i'll do the next best thing, and make sure my ornament is a cross, baby Jesus or something that says 'Merry Christmas' on it. i may even have to find my ‘Jesus is the Reason for the Season’ pin to wear to work tomorrow, if I can find it amoungst all my moving boxes.

“Merry Christmas, Everybody!”

(said in my best George Bailey shout :0)

I read on another blog someone thinking about bringing in a Jesus ornament and writing a note on it: "Non-Denominational Savior".

Please spike that egg nog, so those people who are bent out of shape over the word "Christmas" will lighten up.
I have a pin that says, "Wise Men Still Seek Him" that I'd like to lend you.
Sounds like you've got some morons to deal with at work.
Merry Christmas!!!!!!

Bah. Call it a Christmas tree.

I'm pretty lucky. At this new job, some folks had Christmas decorations, some had Chanakkuh (sp?). Nobody got offended by either.

I'm at war with political correctness. Hate it.
