MERRY CHRISTMAS: If that's your thing. Personally, I think the holiday we observed a few weeks ago, celebrating a miracle in a Middle Eastern war, was a lot more appropriate to the times than this "peace on Earth" nonsense.

(I'm kidding, of course, but only half-kidding. Catholics who are, like Rod Dreher, opposed to the notion of "reducing [their] faith... to whimpering pacifist platitudes" can't be too comforted by the Pope doing just that.)
