Short story By: A Stranger

This was written over the Christmas season in 2005. A massive debate was on going in Canada over wehter to Keep "Christmas" or call it "holiday season" so as to not offend anyone.This is an opinion piece and not meant to offend. If it does, I sincerely apologize in advance. A. Stranger

Once again the season of infinite folly is upon us. Ladies and gents prepare yourselves for a battle wrought over 12 days. In the traditional corner, Christmas, with a lifetime record of 2005 wins and 0 losses. In the non-denominational, culturally accepted and politically correct corner, the challenger, Holiday.

This will be epic, right to its evergreen summit.

Come on people are we for real? A battle royal over a season of giving. The one time of the year that is supposed to reflect the best of human nature! And I laugh, because it is better slapstick ironic comedy than "Seinfeld" ,or "Cheers" ,or another sit-com that may be your favorite.

Ha,ha,ha bunch of "15 minutes of fame" grabbers. The next time you look at the greeting card you send over the following 3 weeks, could you please give yourselves a collective kick in the ass. Come on, you know why. "Wishing you all the best during this holiday season", or "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" etc., etc., etc.

So let thefight begin. I'm going to sit back and bust a gut until my face cracks, and I can't cry from laughter anymore. Why? I've never watched a 12 round title fight when the pugilists were back to back. It's like believing there is no gravity because a ball bounces.

So the next time you're at a Starbucks, or a greasy spoon, Tim Horton's, or where ever, get decaff.

Help save the world and decaffinate Christmas, or have a Chamomille tea for the Holiday Season, just so I don't offend anyone.

Chill people it's about shinning the spotlight, not being in it.

Now several years later, i still feel the same. Surprise someone and smile at them just because you can.

Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noel, Felis Navidad, Buon Natale to all and all have a good night.
