Thanksgiving is behind us, and we’re sated and, perhaps, overstuffed, but there’s more “stuff” and nonsense in the works.
Christmas and New Year’s Day are on people’s minds, and so is the word “holidays.”
And that they are, but there’s a bone of contention for some people when someone says, Happy Holidays.
Well, they are holidays, and we want to be happy, but whatever happened to our “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and Mele Kalikimaka,” as my Hawaiian roommate, Betty Ganiko, taught me over 40 years ago? And we mustn’t forget Happy Hanukkah, either!
