Thanks, Senator Grant Mitchell, But Do You Know It’s Christmas Over There?

Among the many Christmas greetings emails I got this week was one from a Canadian Liberal Senator, Alberta’s Grant Mitchell. shown below.

I am not sure why I am on his Christmas list, but more to the point, I am not sure he HAS a Christmas list, because nowhere on the pretty picture  – or in its message – did the word ‘Christmas’ appear.

This is the time of year to strengthen our friendships, show appreciation and be together.
From my family to yours, I wish you a very happy holiday and a joyous new year.

Cette période de l’année est l’occasion de resserrer les liens d’amitié, d’exprimer notre reconnaissance et de nous réunir en famille et entre amis.

Ma famille se joint à moi pour vous souhaiter, à vous et à proches, de très joyeuses Fêtes et une bonne et heureuse année.

Was it Senator Mitchell’s personal choice to exclude all mention of the REASON for the the holiday, or is it a Liberal Party diktat issued from Turdo’s lair?

Never mind – ’tis the season of goodwill, so I hope he has a lovely holiday – and that Santa is good to him.
