    People generally use “holidays” to mean the holidays they personally celebrate. To many, “holidays” means Thanksgiving and Christmas and the time between, because it seems to go so fast, and because the focus of that time is on Christmas. In religion it’s the season of Advent, and commercially it’s the most intense advertising time of the year (except maybe for election season). Yes, New Year’s is also a holiday, but it’s different. There’s no religious focus, and no commercial focus – few cards, no gifts, no ads; the only people who expect New Year’s sales are booze dealers. I know people who take down their Christmas decorations the day after and it’s like it was never there, even though the religious Christmas season lasts until Epiphany on January 6.

    And if the Pilgrim’s beliefs had prevailed, we’d have had none of the Christmas hoopla in the first place. They knew that Christ’s birthday was not in December and that pagan holidays had been usurped as a cover in the early days of Christianity. They expressly forbade anyone from celebrating Christmas, insisted that everyone work as if it were a regular day (unless it happened to land on Sunday which was holy), and FINED anyone who was caught celebrating. This is part of why they were called the Puritans – they wanted a PURE Christianity without it being sullied with all the pagan practices – trees, lights, gifts, eggs, bunnies, etc.

    In fact, they were the originators of the so-called “War on Christmas.” Learn some real history, please.

    All you ‘regulars’ in the comment column are like club members… You all seem to know (and mostly like) each other and make reading the comics strips much more fun – and informative.
    Thanks, and a Happy New Year to you all.

    The Holidays: Columbus Day to Martin Luther King’s Birthday. Maybe even out to Presidents’ Day in February. Love the days off work. It’s a long road to Memorial Day.

    He is, but in a way you could, I suppose, refer to him as a dog, after all, wolves and dogs are both canine creatures.

    @djc928

    That’s correct. In England, they’d objected to having ornate decorations in their churches so much that they insisted that everybody else had to do things their way, even people who felt that the embroidered alter cloths and golden goblets made them feel closer to God. They were, probably, the first Christian Fundamentalists, and like all of their ilk were completely intolerant. They didn’t come to the New World to find freedom of religion, but to start a colony where they could force everybody to do things their way.

    Well, they did want freedom of religion, but only for theirs. And it wasn’t just Christmas they didn’t celebrate, they forbid any kind of celebrating at all, or basically enjoying yourself at all. They felt it distracted from focus on God, which was the only reason we were here at all.

    Toss Wolfie a cube of cheese wrapped in crisp bacon… see how lively and alert he will be in snagging that treat.
