Considering energy prices, coal may not be such a bad gift these days -- depends how big of a lump you get.

A lump of coal AND the Carbon Tax on top of that? How Rude! :)

Merry Christmas!

hmmm.... I wonder if the recipient would be responsible for the tax if that was not expressly disclosed before accepting the gift.

In the US, there is the "Gift Tax," but I believe you are allowed to give away 5 mil before paying it.

Thanks for the Merry Christmas. I missed hearing it this year.

You see, I work in the front of one of our retail stores, and NOBODY said Merry Christmas to me. It was just "Happy Holidays."

I did get one woman who wished me a "Merry Winter Solstice." but that was the closest thing to a Merry Christmas I heard.

Seems like this year more than any in the past, people have really tried to be politically correct.

Funny, I've always seen it the other way around. "I know some people don't celebrate Christmas but if I say 'Happy Holidays' they can't possibly take offense so I'm secretly still saying 'Merry Christmas' and there's not a thing they can do about it."

I guess the thing that really got to me was that TWO different customers wished me a "Merry Whatever" this year.

I wish people whatever holiday it says on the calendar, Hanukkah, Christmas, whatever, and if some idiot gets offended I have way better phrases to assist with the offending and they'll quickly forget I offered them a Happy or Merry anything! :)

What next Happy New Years will offend people that use a different calendar?

Happy Fourth of July will offend those that don't like America?

Seriously, if you don't celebrate Hanukkah why would you be upset that someone wished you a Happy Hanukkah? Heck, I'll take 8 days of happy anything! Likewise, why would someone take offense to a Merry Christmas? It's not like anyone is shoving their religion down your throat, they're wishing you a merry day, is that such a bad thing?

Maybe they'd feel better if I said "Have a Crappy Christmas and a Horrible New Years"

No political correctness here for the Holidays, just Holiday correctness! :)

Bill,

It will be a "Horrible New Years" as I believe the world comes to an end on 12/20/2012 and there will be no Christmas next year, according to the Aztecs.

...better check with Harold Camping, he seems to top the list for number of predicted dates for the Apocalypse:

[en.wikipedia.org...]

..he could give a new meaning to the phrase "Let's Go Camping".
