Word Play: Happy Holidays

christmas word play Dec 21, 2020

Happy Holidays!

Don’t worry. I’m not using that phrase because it is now the politically-correct thing to do these days. I know only too well that the banning of carols, crèches, and Christ from a season that only has a whit of significance precisely because of carols,...
