An Old Fashioned Christmas

“Let’s bring back an old-fashioned Christmas”, reads the headline from the Desert Valley Times newspaper editorial this morning.

Still, I’m left wanting specifics. Which kind of “old-fashioned Christmas” is the writer talking about?

The kind of old-fashioned Christmas that was marked with drunken brawls in the streets?

The kind of old-fashioned Christmas that was mostly ignored?

Oh, no. The writer rejects those old-fashioned Christmas traditions, and instead goes for the current day Christmas practice of insisting that no one celebrate any other holiday but Christmas, even if they’re not Christians.

That’s not old-fashioned. It’s just mean.
