This performance is actually from last year but the song is timeless.

Hillsdale is one of the few American colleges where no one worries about political correctness when it comes to celebrating Christmas.

This is a truly beautiful performance. Enjoy!

The posts I most enjoy writing about are the ones I didn’t plan, but somehow found.

I’ve written about Christmas Eve in World War II before, including in 2014, Christmas 1944: The Battle of the Bulge. and a follow up with reader memories in 2015, Christmas Eve in the Ardennes 1944.

The College Fix reports:

University painstakingly avoids any mention of ‘Christmas’ with cowboy-themed ‘Holiday Hoedown’

Sometimes it seems the word “Christmas” is like poison to universities. This latest example is no exception.

Don’t like hearing “Merry Christmas”? Tough cookies. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
