Radio station tweets the word “CHRISTMAS”, remains on air, no riot, Muslims seem cool with it so far

We thought they were called “Festive Holiday Lights of Season Values!”
This tweet occurred this morning, in which we find a radio station blatantly uttering the word Christmas, to no apparent negative effect that we have heard about. (Of course we don’t monitor the CBC like we used to.)

Apparently Vancouver radio station CKWX News 1130 has not received the memo or any of the fascist directives from the PC police or any liberal-left think tanks. No claims of “this is exactly what ISIS wants us to do!!”

Or they did get them, but summarily tossed them in the garbage where they belong (and we hope they didn’t sort them into the correct recycling bin!). Which of course means we heartily endorse CKWX News1130 (for now… we reserve the right to rescind in the next hour if they tweet some left-wing bullshit).

LATE UPDATE: All staff are OK as far as we know. No reports of any planned pot smoke-ins or “peaceful protests” or boycotts by disaffected Muslims or atheists or any haughty sneers from CBC reporters or anchors claiming “racist!!” or the ironic “intolerant!!!!” label on them, that we know about.

So far.

Godspeed, you brave common sense normal Canadians manning the Twitter feed.  Merry Christmas CKWX! (Or have we now crossed a line?)

Merry Holidays! Let’s decorate!

Home Depot seems to think “Holidays” happen at the Home Depot warehouse. We’re dubious. We’ve never taken a holiday there.  Oh and also, nobody decorates with “holiday lighting” for “holidays.”  They might hang Christmas lights for Christmas, but they don’t hang “holiday lighting” for “holidays.”

We go through this every year with Home Depot. They throw a monkey wrench at Christmas and use the tortured “holiday” in its place, sometimes at great effort. And as always, we’re not sure of it’s because they hate Christians, Canada, or simply reality.

The Hudson’s Bay is the same. It’s “Holidays” over there at the Bay, where they bend over backward to avoid the word Christmas. We don’t recall seeing a “Holiday Decor” sales event during the summer holidays.

The Source electrified us with Christmas, with the tagline “I want that for Christmas” – not “I want that for ‘the Holidays’.”

Target is on target for atheists and anti-Canadians, we guess, since they use every word except Christmas. But we love it when they’re selling Christmas trees (fake, of course) and are forced to call it a “Christmas tree” – even though we’ve seen them described as “holiday trees.”

Canadian Tire says CHRISTMAS right.

Some stores seem to be run by grinches, or atheists, or something, and do everything they can to rename Christmas into “the holidays” or “the festive season” or the “happy tree festival.”

That’s why we’re glad to see some folks who appreciate our actual Canadian heritage and values, and call it Christmas.

Canadian_Tire-2014-11-07_171918On the naughty list so far: Lowes, which sends out its first Christmas flyer of the year with the banner “HoliDIY Season” – geddit? Holiday plus Do-It-Yourself.  Hey here’s an idea: how about  just “Christmas Season,” which, yeah, has really nothing whatsoever to do with do-it-yourself projects, but, you know, is what’s actually occurring here. Or is this really the “do-it-yourself” season of festive chores and not-so joyous laboring?
