I share your frustration. I'm glad MMC is here as a focus for those who want to share the positive energy of Christmas with others, and as a reminder that some of us still believe in Christmas. It's a shame that it seems to be unpopular to champion the celebration of Christmas these days without someone crying that their rights are being violated. But it seems more and more as though it's perfectly acceptable to truncate the rights of those who want to celebrate Christmas. It would be horrible if the anti-Christmas adherents keep getting closer to driving Christmas underground. Let's keep the candles burning in the windows as much as we can.
