  • The war on Christmas

  • Despite the groaning about shoveling and plowing snow, and the extra step of scraping off our windshields, deep down in side, we're happy about the snow we're finally getting.

  • Despite the groaning about shoveling and plowing snow, and the extra step of scraping off our windshields, deep down in side, we're happy about the snow we're finally getting.
    Why? Well, for a lot of people, myself included, Christmas has always been a favorite holiday. For some it is about Christ, for others it is about family.
    I've always felt that the holiday season isn't complete without snow. The darker nights, the lights, the Nativity, the carols — and the snow. It's a complete package that sets a tone I grew up loving.
    In my mind, that's the real reason to put a stop to global warming. Some people mention a war on Christmas? Yeah, it's called global warming. Global warming is melting our snow and — like a silly villain on a children's holiday special — trying to ruin the holiday. Global warming hates Christmas.
    Some might question the truth of global warming. I won't argue, because I think we can all agree, when Christmas is on the line, it isn't worth the risk of not doing what we can.
    I don't want my future children to live in a world where we have a green Christmas. That'd be terrible.
