Last year I had a friend who couldn't get enough of typing Merry CHRISTmas in her post-Thanksgiving emails. She found opportunity to do it several times per message. As she's the type who goes to a Lutheran church defined more by its high population of prayer warriors than anything actually Lutheran, it was all I could do not to reply to all of these messages with a "Merry ChristMASS." Now I hear from Father William that the idea isn't limited to my own evil little brain. Spread the word, friends. If you can't spell Christmas without Christ, what about that business on the end? What do they think "mas" means anyway?
