Christmas Wars: Episode III Revenge Of Blue's Clues

The attempts by so many politically-correct crusaders and paranoid atheists in this country to dilute the importance and meaning of Christmas these days is often quite easy to spot.

But Robert the Llama-Butcher has discovered it's infiltration into a children's book. If you thought talking salt 'n pepper shakers were peculiar, wait until you see how the Blue's Clues characters introduce you to the holidays of the season.

For the record, here's my take on the "holiday" season. Christmas and Hanukkah are religious holidays with traditions dating back thousands of years. Kwanzaa is - at best - a cultural celebration. So I feel no more compelled to wish anyone a Happy Kwanzaa than I am to wish someone a Happy St. Patrick's Day. And I wish people a Merry Christmas whether they celebrate it or not. I'm wishing them peace and happiness in the spirit of the day. I'm not insisting that they observe its traditions or significance as I see it.

People who are offended at being wished a "Merry Christmas" need to lighten the hell up and have a heavily rum-laden egg nog.
