J.P.: I do wonder who the real scrooges are in this kerfuffle. I omitted from my article a press release we received last week here at the Spectator: a short instruction in “how you can save Christmas.” That’s right — the entire holiday is at stake. One strategy, which you mention, is to correct sales clerks when they wish you a “Happy Holiday.” What gall that must take. My barber and his lovely wife wished me “Happy Holidays” with utmost sincerity this week. Chiding them would have been nothing short of rude.
