Christmas Music

Today a group of us from our community went to lunch and a show in Pennsylvania, specifically in Lancaster County which is Amish country.

Our lunch was a buffet and delicious. There was every kind of food to suit every taste. After lunch we drove to the Living Waters Theater which is a branch of the Sight & Sound Theaters. Our show was called "The Voices of Christmas". They did an assortment of Christmas Carols, and gave background information on some of them.

They did mention something that I had not thought of. It seems that the phrase, "Happy Holidays" comes from the old English, "Happy Holyday". I wonder if the politically correct crowd that wants to eliminate "Merry Christmas" realizes that they are actually wishing us a "Happy Holyday".

"Happy Holyday". Great thought! I do hope the politically correct realize this soon!
