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.
