This afternoon, I went to go shopping for a tree. I couldn't find one damn Christmas tree, but plenty of people were selling holiday trees. what the hell is a holiday tree? Are we becoming so over-sensitive in this country that we can't mention what holiday we're buying a freakin' tree for?
I wonder how far off political correctness will go before people finally say enough is enough because we're too afraid to offend anyone.
Maybe single people should be offended about Valentine's Day. Maybe we can start calling it something else like "friendship day," and when you go out for dinner you'll have to call it a "mutual emotions feast" and you have to deal with it and feel sorry for single people and be empathetic to them.
St. Patrick's Day is another holiday that may have to be changed. If you're atheist, you can't celebrate the patron saint of anything. If you're protestant, you don't pray to saints. However, if you're an alcoholic this is your day. Maybe we can change the name of this holiday to alcohol tolerance awareness day.
Anyway, enough of my ramblings, enjoy the rest of the holiday season. I'm going to read "Twas the Night Before the Non-denominational Winter Holiday" to my kids tonight after I make make some adulterated egg nog and string up my biodegradable energy efficient holiday lights.
