Christmas Carol flap and Sasha
It seemed that some high school group stopped singing Christmas Carols because Sasha who is half Jewish was at the concert and signing autographs. Some city official thought she might be offended even though she "celebrates everything". Too bad, because it seems that everyone, including Sasha was enjoying the groups's singing
In my heart, I'm actually Canadian....
Ah, 'tis the season....:sheesh: :sheesh: :sheesh: Is it just me or is the "I am offended by your holiday display and/or songs and/or the fact that your personal PC level has not run amok enough" annual syndrome that seems to take over the country every holiday season, really gotten out of hand this year?
Furthermore, Sasha is HALF Jewish, so what's the other half?
(I refer also to the Seattle airport thing plus there is some local shrieking in the San Diego area about what to name the holiday festival in the park)
The Mods used to send, via the forum, a holiday greeting card, which several posters found offensive in spite of the fact that it had no religious overtones.
Apparently there is no joy in holidays for some people.
I believe Sasha is ethnically Jewish but not religiously Jewish. Not sure though.
Regardless of Sasha's ethnicity, she was participating in Christmas tree lightings in NY and Cali. so why did anyone feel the need to tiptoe around her? Especially since she has proclaimed she celebrates "everything" in the holiday season. Just goes to show you the excessive overreaction people have about being PC during the holidays now. Pity.
