Have a Merry PC Christmas...

"The truth is they're usually much happier with the idea of a Christian festival than with some general excuse to have a good time in midwinter." - Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams

"Actually I prefer a general excuse to have a good time in midwinter, and celebrate midwinters, than the idea of a Christian Festival" - Angus Abranson

But I do agree with him that some places are being overly silly about their concerns that Christian Symbology in Christmas causing offence. It's been around for hundreds of years now and been commercialised heavily for the last 100/150+ so anyone who is really surprised and/or offended by the symbology of commercialised Christianity should really get into the 21st Century.
