In the middle of the financial meltdown, Congress is taking Tuesday off, because it's Rosh Hashanah
, the Jewish New Year. So are a surprising number of American schools. If the same dynamic were at work that drives the War Against Christmas
, everyone would also be carefully wishing each other Happy Michaelmas
(technically, the Feast of Michael and all Angels)
, the nearest major Christian celebration, on September 29, just like Hanukkah at Christmas.
So - A happy Michaelmas, and Rosh Hashanah, to all our readers. We mean it.
