Top 11 Holiday Greetings From President Bush

There was a minor kerfuffle over the fact that President and Mrs. Bush sent out cards this year wishing constituents a happy "Holiday Season" rather than a "Merry Christmas." I personally don't understand what all the fuss is about. Obviously, not everyone to whom Bush sends these cards observes Christmas. Even if the vast majority do, what's wrong with using a more inclusive generic message?

Perhaps the fuss is over the hypocrisy of the Bush administration claiming that they don't want to send out specific messages to every religious group in America. However, the fact is the Bush administration has bent over backwards to issue a holiday greetings for nearly every religious holiday out there. Here are the top eleven holidays for which Bush has issued a greeting:

11. Thanksgiving
10. Christmas
9. Hanukkah
8. Ramadan
7. Passover
6. Eid al-Adha
5. Rash Hashanah
4. Holodomor Observance
3. Nowruz
2. Eid al-Fitr
1. Kwanzaa

I guess that the good news is that Bush has not yet issued a proclamation in honor of any Klingon Holidays. Yet being the key word.
