Hey folks, it ain't "Santa Christ"

Isn't is kinda, I dunno, funny in a darkly humorous way that the same group that a few years ago was so histrionically lamenting how overly-commercialized Christmas is becoming, are now all up in arms about how certain major retailers aren't putting up enough christmas decorations or replacing "Merry Christmas" with "Happy Holidays" in their banners and advertisements?

Well, then, which is it?!

And while I am all about Santa, and snow, and reindeer, and pinetrees and miseltoe, I am still trying to figure out what exactly all this has to do with the birth of the Christian Savior, in the middle of an arid, middle-eastern high desert area.
