Each and every person employed by the federal government is given, at taxpayer's expense, the day/date December 25th off from their place of work to observer this HOLIDAY==CHRISTMAS! If it is not to be recognized as the holiday (holy-day) it actually is, these public servants should be at their place of work on this day!
Next time you encounter a member of the ACLU, or any other Atheist for that matter, try to respect their dignity by offering the following 'not so Christmasy greeting:'
(Disclaimer: This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others and no responsibility for any unintended emotional stress these greetings may bring to those not caught up in the holiday spirit.) --http://kraftmstr.com
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERY ONE!
