War on Christmas?

One of the things that bores me is any talk about a “War on Christmas,” (also, any talk about how Christmas decorations are out so early. Yes it’s ridiculous that they are out in November, but can we please talk about something, anything else?).

Except there’s this old article about the war on Christmas, which I came across via Scott Gunn, and I kind of love. It’s about a war on Christmas waged by the Puritans, a reminder that we should be careful whenever we’re talking about “traditional American values.”  It ends with the line: “In America, our oldest Christmas tradition is, in fact, the War on Christmas.”
