Enough already.  This is supposed to be a list for discussing JAWS issue, not a general chit chat forum for spreading Christmas cheer, which, in any case, is totally off-topic and might be offensive to non-Christians,of whom there are probably more than a few on this list.

I have to say I'm a Christian, an Anglican priest, and I don't feel the need to proselytize at Christmas.  Many persons wish others a Merry Christmas, and it's just a friendly greeting of the season.  Christmas, apart from religious significance for some of us, is a time of special time with family or friends, a time apart from normal routines when people can relax and take time they might not normally do, to enjoy loved ones and special treats.

So, merry Christmas to all!  May each of us find a break from COVID grimness!

Nothing pisses me off more than when someone’s religion is
disrespected. Many Christians need to proselytize to practice their
faith. It is not unusual for deeply Christian people to offer
strangers cheer and fellowship near the holiest of days. That is part
of their religious practice.
