Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

I was getting down about all the generic “holiday” cards I was getting.

Completely content-void sayings like:

“Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season”


“Seasons Greetings and Best Wishes for a Happy New Year”

Wish me a Merry Christmas, damn it, even though I’m Jewish.

I demand it.

By failing to wish me a Merry Christmas you deprive me of the opportunity to respond, “and a Happy Hanukkah to you.”

To the reader who brightened my day and sent me the “Merry Christmas from Texas” card featured above, I say:

“and a Happy Hanukkah to you” (even though it did come really early this year).

Merry Christmas, Professor, to you and yours. May the New year bring you joy and happiness.

“Wish me a Merry Christmas, d**n it, even though I’m Jewish.”


Merry Christmas, L.I.

Frank Scarn

You’re “Jewish”?

Umm, gosh. Have a wonderful Boxing Day!

A very Merry and Blessed Christmas to everyone, and a very prosperous and New Year.

Merry Christmas. Enjoyed Bibi’s Christmas message as well … there’s a leader with conviction, smarts, and true class.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Merry merry Christmas!

Blessings of joy and peace this Christmas Day.

I tweeted earlier this morning that an atheist telling someone “Happy Holiday” is really telling that person to have a happy religious holy day. So Happy Holy Days – Hanukkah & Christmas – professor. No Festivus spoken here.

Now, should I have dreamt about a White Christmas (that I see outside my Chicago apt. window this morning) or should I have dreamt of a black and white Christmas. I don’t want to rankle the thin-skinned especially at this time of the year?

Merry Christmas, y’all.

Pls drive defensively, so you’ll live to New Year’s

Merry Christmas!

Peace on Earth, good will towards men

Merry Christmas! And God bless us, every one!

Merry Christmas, Prof!

Merry Christmas Professor!

Merry Christmas, sir!

I usually just say:

Happy ChristiKwanziKah

so as to cover all the bases…

Merry Christmas!
God jul ~
Frohe Weihnachten ~
즐거운 크리쓰마쓰

…and blessings for a prosperous 2014!

Belated Happy Hanukkah and a Merry Christmas to one and all, and especially to Professor Jacobson.

And I’d like to pass on a special message from Israeli P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu–

God Bless Us All

    Juba Doobai! in reply to FlatFoot. | December 25, 2013 at 11:00 am

    Excellent! He stressed the inescapable common foundation we share. Every word Netanyahu said was a tie cleverly binding us together. That’s what needs to be done. I know how I feel when I hear one of Netanyahu’s Christmas messages. Imagine how other Christians feel.

    No crazy statements that Jesus was a “Palestinian” will do anything but evoke scoffs and sneers. A Christmas tree in the Knesset is nice, but it really doesn’t say much about the real reason for Christmas. Yet, Netanyahu managed to bind us without these.

    Thank you for posting that message. He is a class act.

    Netanyhu – often the one sane voice in the Middle East.

Merry Christmas to Wm, the crew, and commenters. May God bless you all thru the coming new year!

Merry Christmas.

I wonder how many 26 years olds zipped up their red flannel onesies, grabbed a cup of hot chocolate, and giddily gathered around the Christmas Tree to talk about Obamacare, as instructed to do by Dear Leader?

Any number greater than 1 is a tragedy.

Merry Christmas to all Insurrectionist contributors and readers!


Merry Christmas, Professor J & Family! Merry Christmas, everyone!

And when it’s Hanukkah, even though I’m not Jewish, I’d love it if you’d wish me a Happy Hanukkah.

Why? Even if you aren’t a member of this or that tribe, it’s nice to be treated as a welcome guest … and we’re all members of the American tribe. We’re inclusive.

So, come “join in our reindeer games,” and let me show you my skill with the dreidel.


It’s quaintly poetic to euphemize the freezing cold as dreaming of a white Christmas.

Supposed to be 84 here in L.A. today.

Now that’s a Southern California Christmas … suckers!!!

    Disco Stu_ in reply to LukeHandCool. | December 25, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    As Prof. J is likely aware of, quite cold here in upstate N.Y. but several inches of light fluffy snow dresses up Christmas day very nicely.

    Merry Christmas to all my fellow Insurrectionistas out there. May the new year see us bring down some significant ruling-class elite-thought stupidities.

    I’m just south of you and was up at 5 lighting the fire. Not sure how warm it is supposed to be in Ye Ol’ Carlsbad, but I’m going to let the fire go out now.

    Merry Christmas!

    My first thought this morning when I woke was for the 100,000+ fellow Michiganders that braved another brutal night without power and heat due to the ice storm.

    I know none of you can read this (yet), but–

    Merry Christmas and keep your chin up!

I suppose to experience the Christmas spirit entirely it should be a freezing cold and white one to give meaning to the dishes prepared for the dinner.
Where I grew up Christmas was spent on the beach eating watermelon, peaches and having cold cuts for lunch. Ice cold ginger beer for one’s thirst.
Anyway a Merry Christmas to one and all in peace and friendship.

A very Merry Christmas to you, Professor, and to all the contributors who add their expertise to this blog and to the commenters, also, who add to my knowledge all the time. Thank you all.

SoCA Conservative Mom | December 25, 2013 at 1:21 pm

I started wishing people Merry Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. More often than not I got a smile and Merry Christmas or thank you in response. I’ve had sales people apologize for having to wish me a happy holiday with an explanation of “we can’t…”

Merry Christmas!

    SoCA Conservative Mom, I was shocked this morning to check out Ebay and see they had “Merry Christmas” in red font at the top of their web page. (Amazon was a no go however.)

    Also I’ve noticed many store clerks using “Merry Christmas” this year.

Ronald Reagan: Christmas Message — Dec 24, 1981

Nancy and I are very happy to send our warmest greetings and best wishes to all those who are celebrating Christmas. We join with Americans everywhere in recognizing the sense of renewed hope and comfort this joyous season brings to our nation and the world.

The Nativity story of nearly twenty centuries ago is known by all faiths as a hymn to the brotherhood of man. For Christians, it is the fulfillment of age-old prophecies and the reaffirmation of God’s great love for all of us. Through a generous Heavenly Father’s gift of His Son, hope and compassion entered a world weary with fear and despair and changed it for all time.

On Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Christ with prayer, feasting, and great merriment. But, most of all, we experience it in our hearts. For, more than just a day, Christmas is a state of mind. It is found throughout the year whenever faith overcomes doubt, hope conquers despair, and love triumphs over hate. It is present when men of any creed bring love and understanding to the hearts of their fellow man.

The feeling is seen in the wondrous faces of children and in the hopeful eyes of the aged. It overflows the hearts of cheerful givers and the souls of the caring. And it is reflected in the brilliant colors, joyful sounds, and beauty of the winter season.

Let us resolve to honor this spirit of Christmas and strive to keep it throughout the year.

Nancy and I ask you to join us in a prayer that prudence, wisdom, and understanding might descend on the people of all nations’ so that during the year ahead we may realize an ancient and wondrous dream: “peace on earth, goodwill toward men.”

Merry Christmas Professor Jacobson and thank you for all you do at/with Legal Insurrection.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to Professor Jacobson and all at Legal Insurrection – from the Goys in the Land.

P.S. Thanks for the best belly laugh all week!

Merry Christmas, Prof and all y’all, from the wintry-brisk rooftop of Virginia. It is a blessed day.


Dear Professor, you really make me smile! 🙂

Happy Christmas (Merry Christmas), or, as we say in our Orthodox Churches – Christ is Born! (with response) Glorify Him!

(Of course, for those Orthodox Christians celebrating Christmas on January 7th – I’m not quite so late on the Christmas cards!)
