To Holidays Without Politics

Jennifer Baker

Happy welcome back to work after Thanksgiving, Frederick.  It’s just a short 3-week sprint to Christmas and for most businesses the end of the fiscal year.

How did everyone do avoiding trigger words for our left leaning friends? Were we all able to avoid talk of politics, religion and money?  Was Thanksgiving dinner diverse and did everyone have their share of social equity?

Media won’t mention families reconnecting or how cooking at home can be healthier and cheaper these days than dining out.

With the holiday upon us we can rely on the media to tell us, yet again how terrible we all are. After all Rudolph was bullied and discriminated against for his disability. The land of misfit toys is all about segregation.

Baby It’s Cold Outside is a misogynistic account of non-consent.

Thanks to John Legend we can all now look forward to hearing on heavy repeat, his new total consent version of Baby It’s Cold Outside If You Say So from now till December 26th.

We can also look forward to the incessant cry of how awful nativities are from the left and how we should not celebrate Christmas as it’s a pagan holiday, from some Christians.

What both fail to realize is at the secular level, the Christmas story is a story of acceptance and unconditional love.

Regardless of knowing or not the historically accurate birthdate of Christ, there would be no Easter Sunday without a birth in a manager.

Enjoy the Christmas lights, trees and wreaths this year.

With the current county council’s push on banning anything they deem bad for the “climate crisis”, it’s sure to be a soon discussed option to not only ban balloon releases in Frederick, but to add to that Christmas lights.

Hopefully we don’t have to look forward to being fined for cutting a Christmas tree.

Does possession is 9/10th of the law apply to trees bought from a lot and placed in your home?  Note to self, do not place tree in front window.

Most tune out the current noise on Christmas and think back to simpler times.  Pictures of the not so distant past show no fights over black Friday deals.

As a child of the 70s, who remembers blue laws on Sunday, it seems strange now how many people skip Thanksgiving to camp out at a store for a chance on a deal.

Hopefully we can all ignore the noise this year and enjoy all the sights, sounds and smells of the season.
