Xmas is insulting to many people including myself. Merry Christmas please. Christmas is a national holiday.

No offence Charles, but not everyone celebrates Christmas...

  Barry that is quite obvious.  However does not give license to insult the Christian majority who do. Still a national holiday to be celebrated by all. It is a Holiday of giving .Give and be happy.   Xmas is an insulting term to ones that do, period. That simple. Has nothing to do with if one celebrates it or not. I felt it is my duty to say so. Tolerance counts.
I am a bit surprised you do not see that.

I found this pretty interesting... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xmas

No real reason to be offended.

Thanks, Barry! I had no idea about the origin. I just assumed it was a shortcut of sorts.
As to Festivus, Dave. I hope you’re not challenging me regarding the feats of strength. If so, my white flag is already out.... 🏳

 :rofl:  X'mas to me is just an abbreviation, as I'm lazy.  How that bothers anyone is fine by me; I'm celebrating my own holiday, as anyone would celebrate his/hers the way he/she likes.....  There's no reason to be a grouch this time of the year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ENJOY!

 :X :beer: :yay2: aa :pWow, serious audio is really dying?  Our group's last posting was in Dec.  AND, the "RIP" posting of Audio Syndrome was even longer ago, November.  Truely, RIP is in order?

Happy Chinese New Year anyway. Just "ratting" away, this being the Year of the Rat. :drool: :beer: :X :yay2: :p

Barry, you're picking on me :duh?  My place is just a precious 1 bedroom apt. in NYC, no way I would be able to host.  YOu have a mansion; THAT'S the kind of place worthy of hosting events.  LOL :thumb:
