    I don't believe it. Today the bus I take was flashing Merry Christmas. Was I offended? No freakin way. It put a smile on my face.

    FWIW, I love Canada too. I recently spent a week in Toronto and fell in love with it. I visit Vancouver and Victoria as often as I can - I adore both cities. If I had to emigrate, it would be to Canada.

    So to all my Hoser friends, Merry Christmas, eh.

    All of the warm thoughts of Canada are wonderful, my mother is from Newfoundland so the mention of jiggs dinner warms my heart!! I won't talk about our many flaws as a country like our heavily taxed "free" healthcare, long wait times for medical tests/procedures..oops sorry!! Merry Christmas/happy holidays!

To me, Happy Holidays is more inclusive. It isn't about being PC, it's about being cognizant that the world is made up of many different people and beliefs, not all of which I agree with but as long as they're not trying to push their brand of observance on me or harming others with how they practice their religion, then live and let live.

    Dressing as in stuffing? Um ... I'm not sure how I feel about that. What kind of dressing?

    She means stuffing...usually made the newfie way with summer savory. If you enjoy your stuffing with mashed potatoes and gravy you would probably like it on fries..it is delish.
