Happy Holiday/Merry Xmas

I’m not going to irritate or agitate or fulminate today; it’s a holiday. Have some eggnog and relax.

Try to push the problems this blog discusses out of your minds–at least until tomorrow.

Thanks to all of you who read my rants, and those of you who take the time to comment.

Have a great day. This grinch will be back tomorrow.


  1. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Blessed Eid (way early) and Happy Kwanza — and Happy Whatever Else your tradition might be.
    And thank you, Sheila — you’re my favorite grinch!

  2. This is the season of celebration for many religions and the Winter Solstice of Atheism; let us escape into the meaning of our chosen celebration and gain strength to return to the realities of conditions today.

    Happy Holidays to my blog family and your families; there is strength in unity.

  3. Dear Ms. Kennedy,
    Enjoy the eggnog and the meal(s)! AND remember: our world is only as bad as we can make it… we can always find sooo much to be thankful for.
    May the year bring you all you could hope for, and may it be only good and more than you ever expected!
    Happy Yule and New Year!

  4. Happy holidays Sheila! Thanks for your insight. I find it interesting, comforting, disturbing, butetc. And I am grateful for it.

  5. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays To You and Yours and to all of your followers who like I see you as a voice of wisdom and reason in good times and bad. Best Holidays wishes to each of you, it’s been a gift knowing each of you.

  6. Sheila. . . as a daily reader but very infrequent commentator, thank you and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family.

  7. Thank you for your blog. It has become the first thing I read each morning, and I often find myself forwarding it to friends. Happy New Year!

  8. Happy Holidays to everyone! May you enjoy all the blessings of the season.

    This blog is a highlight for me, since I live in the deepest red corridor in the state of Florida. It’s nice to be able to check in and see sanity in action. Thank you.

  9. happy Holidays, Sheila. Your comments are usually the first thing I read every morning. they set me up for all the rest. Thank you very much for all of them.

  10. To everyone: Stay strong. Think clearly. Gird the loins for 2019. Have faith in the system. We have much to be thankful for and much to do. Enjoy the holidays. Remember, there are those living out of shopping carts who aren’t necessarily enjoying the season of love. Do something for them next year.

  11. Happy Holidays to one and all. I watched a sermon on YouTube by the rector of All Saints in Pasadena California from 2015. It was an interfaith sermon and very inspiring.

    May each and everyone of you be blessed with a lovely time spent with those you love , good food, and something or someone that fills you with wonder and joy.

  12. Greetings Sheila. Happy Holidays to you. You are a jewel. Keep up the good work and add something to the eggnog. 🙂 Irvin

  14. There is a great french phrase: De retour chez vous!
    It translates into “Right back at you”.

    For all that there is and all that you gave me and those of us who really listen. Thanks.
