The Christmas season brings out the best and worst in people; it also brings out the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). In fact, Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the FFRF, states, "The state shouldn’t have a Christmas anything. It’s not supposed to observe religious holidays."
As December is fast approaching, I am in a bit of a Christmas mood. Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year, but not because of the gifts and the food. Most people seem to be genuinely happier during the month of December.
December 25 is now history, and the combatants in the “Christmas wars” have laid down their arms until next year. But the issues are far from resolved, and the conflict is far from over. Look for the guns to sound again come next December.
