Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah to you

Barraged by comment over holiday-related squabbles in the state capital, I especially enjoyed this animated greeting. (A fast connection helps.)

In an ecumenical spirit, M. went Chrismahanukwanzakah shopping today at the Holy Cross Abbey winery.

When I was a young Pagan, I never let the "C-word" cross my lips if I could possibly say "Yule" instead. Now I hardly care. When a Salvation Army bellringer wished me "Happy Holidays" last week after I put some money in the kettle, I almost snapped back, "I expect to hear 'Merry Christmas' from you! Where's your pride?" But that response would not have been in the Chrismahanukwanzakah spirit. (Thanks again to GetReligion for the link.)
