Happy St. Michael's Day
! Also known Michaelmas, one of the Quarter Days when rent was due. And, because St Michael is the patron saint of some police officers, it can be a Blue Mass
held in their honor. Take that, Black Lives Matter
Oh, and Yom Kippur begins at sunset.
VDARE.com does not advocate a War On Yom Kippur to counter the War On Christmas
. But it has now become a multicultural must to step on Christmas by never mentioning it except in connection with other “holidays”, notably Hanukkah
, aptly described by American Heritage’
s Frederic Schwarz (December 2000) as the “Jewish Kwanzaa”. Somehow, however, the MSM neglects to provide the nearest Saint’s Day in the Christian calendar
to each year`s Rosh Hashanah
, Yom Kippur
—there are a lot of saints!—so it has become a VDARE.com service (as so often) to fill the gap.
The War On Christmas has been through ten phases since the mid-1990s by my count
, ending with last year’s Trump Trauma
. Judging by the Left’s continuing totalitarian tantrum
, we can expect a real fight this year.
Still, unlike the unpleasant War On Christmas perpetrators
, VDARE.com does wish everyone a Happy—sincerely.
