Google Being Disingenuous: Google Doodle Showing Santa & His Sleigh Says “Happy Holidays!”.

Google Doodle for December 23, 2018. Says “Happy Holidays!” if you move cursor over the Doodle.


Political correctness or NOT this is stupid and uncalled for.

As soon as you introduce Santa into a greeting it is no longer non-denominational.

You can’t claim it is “Happy Holidays!” and try to get away with it.

If there is Santa it is Christmas and the greeting has to include the word “Christmas”.

So, I am kind of disappointed with Google.

Kennebunkport, Maine, 2016 “Christmas Prelude”, Friday, December 9 — Very Festive.

As I had hoped we managed to make it to Kennebunkport, Maine for their famed ‘Christmas Prelude‘. We left home just before 4pm and got there around 5:15pm. Lot of traffic. Main dragged closed. Parking wasn’t easy (but we had no clue what or where to look for). But found free parking along the road.

Very festive. Very colourful. Very friendly. Very bright. VERY COLD — and that, alas, was the dominant theme.

Fireworks were NOT bad at all. Cool to have fireworks ahead of Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

Lots of shops selling lots of cool things. Very decent prices! Yep. We were surprised.

We didn’t hang around much after the fireworks. Just too cold.

But highly recommended. Merry Christmas.
