Happy "PC Brigade Kills Christmas" Month

December 7th, 2007

This kind of thing is why I hate December. Example:

"The letter was a reaction to an alleged attempt by Birmingham City Council to re-name the festive celebrations 'Winterval' and allegations that Luton was trying to re-fashion Christmas as a winter Harry Potter festival by changing the name of its lights to 'Luminos'."

It's a rather late reaction, though, as Luminos was held in 2001. And it wasn't a replacement for the town's Christmas celebrations, either. As for Winterval, it was held in 1997 and 1998.

In fact, this is just a regurgitation of the same old nonsense that appears every year. The Guardian wrote a rather good article explaining the phenomenon – complete with Winterval and Luminos – back in 2006.

Wise words this festive season

December 3rd, 2007

"What my father figured out was if you can't get out, you just either blow something up, or you eat something, or you just throw penguins in the air." – Brian Henson

From the excellent Muppet Wiki – and there's an article on Sam the Eagle, too.
