  • I Turned My Coworker Into HR When She Gave Me A Christmas Card, And She Changed My Heart

    A person who gives a gift featuring his or her sacred religious iconography is reaching out, showing kindness and sharing his or her faith with others.For years I have been one of the only Jewish people at my places of employment. I am currently the only Jew who wears a kippah at my office every day. In my heavily Southern Baptist and rural town, one would think I would be quite familiar with the consequences of being such an outsider.But, as any honest minority will tell you, that singular idea of what America must be like simply is not accurate....

    This year, as we proudly hang our seasonal greeting cards, displaying the smiling faces of our loved ones (and yes, sometimes their dogs), it's easy to forget that for many people, the holidays aren't all candy canes and carols. For five-year-old Safyre, the sole survivor of an arson attack that killed her family, and left her homeless, Christmas can be a painful reminder of what she's lost
  • Imagine the outrage if those vulgar Christmas cards poked fun at Islam instead

    Hollywood dubbed the life of Christ “The Greatest Story Ever Told”. But actually the title would serve perfectly for the birth of the baby Jesus in the stable at Bethlehem, surrounded by his parents and beasts of the field. […] Whatever you think, whether you believe the Gospels or not, this is a story that has spoken to the hearts of men for 2,000 years, and still speaks to many of us. Who could ruin it? Who could want to ruin it? One answer is a stationery chain called Scribbler. It is stocking, by my count, some 50 Christmas cards...
  • Keeping Wounded Vets Safe From Christmas Cards

    From FNC (where there is also video): Boys and girls at Grace Academy in Prosper, Tex., spent most of last Friday making homemade Christmas cards for bedridden veterans at the VA hospital in Dallas. Fourth-grader Gracie Brown was especially proud of her card, hoping it would “make their day because their family might live far away, and they might not have somebody to celebrate Christmas with.” “I’d like them to know they’ve not been forgotten and somebody wanted to say thank you,” Gracie told Gracie’s card read, “Merry Christmas. Thank you for your service.” It also included an American flag....

    The national commander of the American Legion is demanding answers from the Veterans Administration after hospitals in three states placed restrictions on Christian volunteers, including a group of schoolchildren who were told they could only perform Christmas carols from a government-approved list. "Every Christmas, every religious holiday, Christians are more and more often targeted for censorship and restriction at VA facilities," American Legion National Commander Daniel Dellinger said. "Veterans in these hospitals fought to protect such freedoms." In Iowa City, American Legion members were told they could not hand out presents to veterans if the wrapping paper said Merry Christmas....

    Joy Behar on The View says that if she were Jewish, sending her a religious-​themed Christmas card would be like sending Mel Gibson a Hanukkah card. Then, Sherri Shepherd offensively, I think, tells Barbara Walters, who’s Jewish, that she prays for her, as if Walters needs it?

    Aquinas and More ^ | November 4, 2011
    Christmas Cards, official items printed with a Christmas message and sent to wish others a "A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You.", were first printed in England in 1843 making them as old as the opera Don Pasquale, the United Free Church of Scotland, the British colony of Natal, a Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and your grandmother's fruit cake. Sir Henry Cole commissioned John Callcott Horsley to create the first Christmas card. Sir Cole must have had a lot of friends and a lot of free time since he had 1000 printed. Unfortunately, he didn't...

    A Republican lawmaker with a mission to save Christmas is aiming his latest salvo at President and first lady Obama, who've followed in a recent tradition to eliminate the mention of Christmas in the White House holiday cards. The card selected by the Obamas announces: "Season's Greetings." Inside, it reads: "May your family have a joyous holiday season and a new year blessed with hope and happiness." But Rep. Henry Brown, R-S.C., said abandoning Christmas at Christmas is just plain wrong. On Tuesday, he introduced a resolution calling for the protection of the sanctity of Christmas. So far, 44 lawmakers,...

    Walter Reed Army Medical Center cannot accept packages, letters, and holiday cards addressed to 'Any Wounded Soldier' or 'A Recovering American Soldier'. The U.S. Postal Service is no longer accepting "Any Service Member" or "A Recovering American Soldier" letters or packages. Mail to "Any Service Member" that is deposited into a collection box will not be delivered. However, through a unique partnership between the American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes Inc., communities across America are invited to mail cards along with personal messages of support to wounded service members at military hospitals around the country.

    Before we pack away Christmas for the year, perhaps we should reflect on what it means to some of those of the liberal persuasion.If you Google for "liberal Christmas cards" the first site you will be directed to the bizarro world that is Progressive Holidays: The sentiment inside the last bizarre card reads: "George W. Bush terrifies me. Happy New Year!"The card with the night photo of a tree in the snow celebrates the winter solstice. The card with the people bowing down before a demon says: "Happy Holidays."The site offers seasonal bumper-stickers too: One can almost understand their juvenile...

  • Joshua Sparling Update: Special Call to Michigan FReepers

    I had the privilege of meeting Joshua Sparling's father and brother at yesterday evening's FReep. (History of Joshua here.) They came down to meet us, and Joshua was kind enough to send some candy and other goodies down for our supportive vigil. More details will be in the weekly AAR, but I wanted to touch on one point. Although the response to Joshua's predicament has been absolutely overwhelming, they have only received six cards - total - from Michigan. Why is that such a big deal? It's Joshua's home. And he's been featured in several newspapers, including Lansing's publication. I...

    It began to dawn on Kimberly Forsyth last week: She wasn't getting as many Christmas cards as she used to. "Usually by now my mailbox is full of them," said Forsyth, 42, a business consultant who was at the main Baltimore post office recently, sending Christmas packages. "By now I usually have 40 to 50 cards. This year I have about 10." Of course, Forsyth wasn't sending as many as usual, either - about 50 this year, compared with 150 in previous years. She writes a personal note in each of her cards and said she just doesn't have the...

    Gun-Toting Santa Featured on Christmas Card By Nathan Burchfiel Dec 23, 2005 ( - The latest reason for gun control and gun rights activists to sharpen their rhetoric is a Christmas card released by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. The card features an armed Santa Claus attempting to shield three children from a terrorist. The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) sent the card to members of Congress, President Bush, and others who support gun rights. The terrorist portrayed on the card is wearing a turban and trying to...

    THE CHRISTMAS CARD I sent out as Blackburn’s MP is a proper one. It was designed by Anna Souroullas (Year 3 of Holy Souls RC Primary School), who won a competition that I organised with some Blackburn schools. But it also has a proper message inside. “Best wishes for Christmas and the new year”. I claim no pride of ownership in this message. After all it’s what one should expect of a Christmas card. But I have just noticed — alas, for the first time — that the card I sent out in my capacity as Foreign Secretary has the...
