    DREAMING OF A GREEN CHRISTMAS: OK, you want to celebrate Christmas. Do you get a fake plastic Christmas tree which could leach toxic chemicals, or cut down a living, if maybe pesticide-laden, tree only to throw it away after a couple of weeks? Environmentalist Kristi Chester Vance of San Francisco, Calif., decided to buy a real tree to decorate her house for her Christmas party.

    "I'm a forest activist, and there's a dead tree in the middle of my house," she admitted. "Geez, if I have a tree, why not nail the last snow leopard to the wall, too?" But, she says, Christmas trees are farmed products, "kind of like corn."

    Still unsure which way to go? Eric Antebi of the Sierra Club offers a suggestion: "Allow me to put in a plug for Hanukkah, which celebrates the miracle of a little bit of oil lasting eight days," he said.

    "You've got to love a holiday that's all about energy efficiency."

    The ACLU is the biggest bunch of ass-holes in this country. They parade around stating they are trying to protect the rights of the people. Do most of you realize that they do this at the expense of approximately $200 to $250 per hour? How many times do they work for free or at discounted rates? Not usually.

    I put them on my list. This year will be late, but they will get it on time every year until I stop sending cards

    I've just sent mine. Too bad it won't get there until after Christmas now.

    Fun with the ACLU

    Fun with the ACLU

    Wanna have some fun this CHRISTMAS? Send the
    ACLU a CHRISTMAS CARD! As they are working so
    very hard to get rid of the CHRISTMAS part of this
    holiday, we should all send them a nice, CHRISTIAN,
    card to brighten up their dark, sad, little world.

    Make sure it says "Merry Christmas" on it. Here's the
    address, just don't be rude or crude. (It's not the
    Christian Way ya know?)

    ACLU
    125 Broad Street
    18th Floor
    New York, NY 10004

    Two tons of Christmas cards would freeze their
    operations because they wouldn't know if any
    were regular mail containing contributions......
    So spend 37 cents and tell the ACLU to leave
    Christmas alone.

    Also tell them that there is no such thing as a
    Holiday Tree....It's a Christmas Tree even in the
    fields!!

    According to the World Book

    The traditional celebration of Boxing Day included giving money and other gifts to charitable institutions, needy individuals, and people in service jobs.

    I know you are joking, but just for edification; "Boxing Day" is not Canada's Christmas. It's the day after, when people have off so they can box-up their unwanted Christmas gift's and return them to the stores. And while they are there, they can buy left over merchandise.

    If people don't want to accept my" Merry Christmas" then they can ignore me or offer whatever greeting they want to me.

    And to my Canadian friends " Happy Boxing Day"
