Peace on Earth? (washingtonpost.com)

E. J. Dionne makes a lot of sense in his latest Washington Post piece on the holiday battles. Here's a good nugget:

Personally, I am partial to seasonal celebrations that acknowledge our religious diversity by allowing traditions to express themselves in their integrity. This is better than allowing only a commercial Christmas mush that satisfies no one except the retailers. Trying to delete every form of religious expression from the public square leads to foolishness. But one thing is even more foolish: for the religious majority to feel "oppressed" by a public etiquette designed to honor the rights of those outside its ranks.

Read the rest...and happy holidays!
