    President Donald Trump is gifting federal employees with a day off on Christmas Eve this year. On Tuesday, the President signed an executive order excusing government employees from work on Monday, Dec. 24, 2018. The executive order declared that "All executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government shall be closed and their employees excused from duty on Monday, December 24, 2018, the day before Christmas Day." The President signed the order amid uncertainty of a possible partial government shutdown if a funding bill doesn't get approved by Friday. Christmas is always a holiday for the federal government but presidents...

    President Trump signed an executive order Tuesday that gives federal employees the day off on Christmas Eve.“All executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government shall be closed and their employees excused from duty on Monday, December 24, 2018, the day before Christmas Day,” the order says. Certain offices may need to be open, however, to carry out responsibilities related to "national security, defense, or other public need," according to the order. “The heads of executive departments and agencies may determine that certain offices and installations of their organizations, or parts thereof, must remain open and that certain employees must report...

    Townhall.com ^ | December 11, 2018 | Dennis Prager
    Is "Merry Christmas" a thing of the past, a greeting from a bygone era, a remnant of a past with which we no longer want to be associated? We might not be there yet, but if current trends continue, we're not far off. If so, it's a shame, a further coarsening of the culture -- and worse. It is yet another an example of the removal of religion, specifically Christianity, from a country that has long been the most religious major industrialized democracy in the world. Proponents of "happy holidays" argue that this is no big deal. They say the...

    The Federalist ^ | 01/03/2018 | David Marcus
    Controversy erupted over Christmas week when the Washington Post tweeted out an opinion article by Raphael Lataster they had published in 2014. It claims to show that the existence of Jesus as a historical figure is likely no more than a myth. Critics questioned the timing of the tweet as a slap in the face to Christians preparing to celebrate one of their holiest days.Possibly more importantly, many seized on the reaction to the 2014 publication. Historians, including a professor who had taught Lataster in a class about the historical Jesus, demolished the claims. Its ideas were described as...

    “I don't think the term Happy Holidays will ever annoy me so much again.” My dearest of friends Ralph and Margaret may have unknowingly ignited a Christmas trend that puts Christmas Greetings into a proper perspective that originates from natural order. Watching television is sometimes the only link to the outside world when small towns like the one where we live become snowbound when the main highway leading out of it is shut down. Like many others, Ralph and Margaret turn to Fox News when blizzards keep them house bound. Though Fox is their standby network, they were disconcerted to...
  • Erie, Pennsylvania pummeled by record 5 feet of snow

    (Reuters) - Snow piled up in Erie, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday after two days of record-breaking snowfall that had already surpassed 5 feet (1.5 meters), breaking city and state records, according to the National Weather Service. Though residents are used to winter snow squalls blowing in from adjacent Lake Erie, which straddles the border with Canada, the Christmas storm is already one for the ages. "This is an incredible amount of snow that we're trying to move," the Erie Police Department said in statement after the city declared a "snow emergency" on Tuesday, imploring people to stay off the streets.

    Canada Free Press ^ | 12/26/2017 | Judi McLeod
    The best thing about the first day after Christmas: The Christmas curmudgeons ’ carping starts to wane right up until the calendar draws near to next Christmas. The progressive left are the collective Christmas curmudgeons. They’re worse than the Grinch, who at least ultimately acknowledged that there is such a thing as Christmas. Carp, carp, carp is all the Christmas curmudgeons know how to do. The beautiful Christmas Greeting, “Merry Christmas!” sends them retching over the nearest curb. Unfortunately for the marginalized majority, they don’t keep their misery to themselves but spread it whenever and wherever they can.

Charles Pope • December 25, 2017 • No Room at the Inn, Simon de VosIn this reflection, perhaps we can consider just a single line in the Gospel, one that both challenges our love and acts as a sign of God’s humble and abiding love for us: For there was no room for them in the inn. I. The Scene – There is a knock at midnight. Joseph, speaking on behalf of both Mary and Jesus (who is in her womb still), seeks entrance to the homes and...
