Happy Holidays! When I say Happy Holidays to some people
they think I am ignoring Christmas and trying to just be politically correct.
That couldn't be any further from the truth. I really mean Happy Holidays and
that certainly includes Christmas.
As many of you know there are a number of holidays that are
celebrated in December and January. Here

the United States which celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ.
Hanukkah: The Jewish holiday that precedes

Yule fest: Another name for the Winter Solstice
Kwanzaa: A non-religious African American

Holidays, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
