Buddhists for Christmas

You simply must read this essay on Christmas greetings, if only to find out what Jackie Mason did to let the world know how he feels about it.

The thing about Christmas that any sane person must admit is that it is only the current name of a long-observed holiday. And the folks in Sri Lanka, who are predominately Buddhist, adore Christmas. I think most Americans would have a hard time explaining all this "Happy Holidays" vs. "Merry Christmas" nonsense to Lankans.
