Happy Holidays!

Actually, the Christmas holiday traditionally is a 12-day period from Christmas
Day to Epiphany. Unfortunately, Americans seem to dislike it so much that they
compress it into a single day. To make up for it, they start the agonizing
period of promotional advertising in late September, nowadays. I, for one,
think it should be banned from print or electronic media until after noon on the
22nd of December, so one doesn't tire of it all before the fact. <sigh>
