White Christmas

So here I am at home today writing code for our new checkout process while watching the snow blow straight sideways by the windows. I tried to go to work today and with 15 foot visibility, I decided it would be best if I came home.

Hopefully everyone who made it to work today took my advice and left several hours ago. If you ordered something from us today and needed it by Christmas, I'm sorry. It's not going to get there.


  1. Should we boycott the USCCB because they didn’t say “Merry Christmas?”

    /sarcasm 😉

  2. Are you sure it’s not just an Americanism, as opposed to …a secularism!

  3. Further evidence that we need to pray for our Priests and all Religious…..at all levels, especially those in policy making roles such as bishops, cardinals and the Pope. Also pray for vocations.

  4. I think it is an example of how language changes due to the way it is used (or not used) in the popular culture. Who would ever think that “Merry Christmas” would become quaint, kind of like saying “Good Day” or referring to boys as “Master (fill in the last name) or girls as maidens? What we don’t use, we lose, so let us be careful in our speech and help everybody along by keeping “Merry Christmas” current rather than allowing it to become an anachronism.
