About That Attack On Merry Christmas

So today as my girlfriend and I were fixin' to leave our beloved Hampden to travel west for A Christmas Terror, our next door neighbor came by to ask us something or other. As he was leaving he said - in his marvelous old school style Baltimore City accent(not Bawlmer Cockney Cracker, but the slightly more City sounding one) - "Merry Christmas!" I said the same to him. Now, both of us are Jews, but somehow we managed to utter that poor maligned phrase just fine. If two Jews in Baltimore can happily say it to each other without so much as a second thought, maybe it's not in so much danger after all.
