Positively Revolting on 11/30/12

Air date: 
Fri, 11/30/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Talking about the winter holidays in a multi-cultural society.

FOX News and other conservative media outlets have been promoting the concept of there being a "War on Christmas".  The idea being that if a person wishes someone anything other than a "Merry Christmas", they are directly insulting Christians and attacking little baby Jesus in his manger.  Given that there are a number of faiths with holidays during December, how does a multi-cultural society respect and acknowledge multiple celebrations and observances.

And while on the subject of respecting many spiritual paths--turns out the Mayan calendar does not end later this month, and the persistant hype of the end of the world is benefitting tour operators and new age bookstores, while offending the Mayans.
