Christmas and “The Holidays”

Posted by PrestoPundit on 12/09/2005

So why has this become the “holiday season”? It’s become the “holiday season” because Christmas became so huge and most everyone wanted to participate in the winter party — amd most everyone one wanted to incuded everyone else in the party without offending anyone. Thus Chanukah in America was transformed from a minor holiday to a major celebration — Reform Jews restored Chanukah to their holiday calendar only in the 1920s. Now school children everywhere and the President of the United States celebrate Chanukah.

Of course Christmas itself began life as an add-on party to a traditional pagan holiday. It was the “holiday season” you see.

The weirdest new addition to the “holiday season” is Kwanzaa. America’s elementary school teachers want to be so inclusive that they wish their students to include racists Marxists in on the holiday season. Of course I’m talking about Kwanzaa — a holiday which inspired out of one man’s hostility toward Christianity, white people, and liberal democracy, a man who was in fact a a racist, Marxist and thug.

These days Kwanzaa is so mainstream that even President Bush offers an annual Kwanzaa message to the American people, in order to celebrate, one suppose, collectivist economics and race-based social interaction. It’s ok now if you excuse yourself to throw up.

Christmas at Disneyland

Posted by PrestoPundit on 12/02/2005

This is my report on Christmas as celebrated at Disneyland.

Let’s start with “It’s A Small World”. The thing is decked out and redecorated for Christmas — or should I say for “The Holidays.” The word “Christmas” — in English — is nowhere to be found. There’s “Happy Holidays”, there’s “Seasons Greetings”, there’s “Peace on Earth”, there’s “Joy to the World” but there’s no “Merry Christmas” or “Christmas” of any kind — in English.

But multicultural political correctness somehow makes it “OK” to have “Merry Christmas” greetings expressed in Spanish or Hawaiian or Dutch. Just don’t say it in English. One presumes that somehow saying it in a foreign language is an expression of “diversity” while saying it in English would be “offensive” or “exclusionary” or some such. Who knows?

It’s also weird that “It’s A Small World” has children in every corner of the globe celebrating Christmas the holidays — and singing “Jingle Bells” — but not a single culture across the globe does so making any reference to Christianity or the birth of Jesus. There are zero, zip, nada references to the cultural/religious holiday which is Christmas.

Which is not to say that there isn’t any reference to religious holidays of the winter season. Included among the “holiday cards” found at the end of “It’s A Small World” is a card with the image of a stylized Star of David.

Elsewhere. My kids really enjoyed seeing Santa’s reindeer, which were part of an exhibit also featuring Santa himself. My kids weren’t so excited about him ..

And Christmas is NOT the holiday that dares not say it’s name at Disneyland. Among the floats in the Disney holiday parade was a float titled “The Christmas Ball” — note well that was not “The Holiday Ball” — featuring Cinderella, Snow White, Belle, and Sleeping Beauty.

My 2 year old absolutely loved the parade — and you can rest assured the whole family will be back to see it again before the end of the holiday Christmas season.
