Merry War on Christmas

Pastor Dan at Street Prophets is running his ever-popular "Why I hate Christmas" contest again this year.

Dark for Darfur is wisely swapping tacky Christmas lights for international activism.

And not all people of faith are buying into the Fox News "War on Christmas" wackiness. A Common Good Christmas is a religious website that, ahem, makes total sense to me:

The real assault on Christmas...is an excessive consumer culture that has turned a holy season into a celebration of commercialism and materialism. By focusing our attention on shopping malls and the consumerism that accompanies Christmas, [the so-called "war on Christmas" furor] further distracts us from the real message of the holiday.
