Origins of Christmas and Other Fascinating Stuff

Remember poor Kirby, the Wal-Mart employee who got fired for sending an "insane" e-mail to a woman who went whining to the Catholic League, who went threatening Wal-Mart with a boycott, thereby getting him fired?

He had been attempting to enlighten her that Christmas has pagan origins, and that other cultures/religions celebrated the season as well, and that was the reason Wal-Mart greeters and signs said, "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas."

Apparently, the Catholic League thinks they invented Christmas all by themselves.


In my peripatetic wanderings about the Internet, I came across this site. Have a boo. Each link will take you to a different article about Christmas.

This article in particular should be sent repeatedly to the Catholic League -- and to the whiner.

Happy Holidays. Belated birthday greeting to Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Merry Christmas. Happy Channakah. Have an enlightened Bodhi Day. Remember Zarathushtra. Good Yule.

Yule is one month today.

Now I get it.

Another criterion for being eliminated from WalMart employment is apparently 'knowing stuff about stuff.'

Clearly a subversive characteristic.
