Christmas Cancelled

With all the talk about the War on Christmas, it appears that we've found a firm case of it. Except this time it's not in the United States, but in the former Yugoslav republic of Croatia.

Due to the global financial crisis, Croatia has decided to ban certain aspects of the December holiday:

"For that goal we forbid buying of Christmas and New Year's gifts as well as organising of Christmas and New Year's receptions," said Mr Sanader.

Christmas banned? Boy, that sucks.

They didn't ban Christmas.

So people can't buy presents. They'll make them.

So they can't have Christmas and New Year's receptions. They'll find a way to celebrate.

Maybe everyone will open their windows and get in their yards or in the streets and celebrate. New possiblities may create a national celebration the likes of which they've never seen in Croatia.

But whatever the Croat government has done will simply serve to highlight among those who would celebrate Christmas what it's true meaning is.

Life and liberty come immediately to mind.
