In this holiday season, may goodwill and good cheer flow abundantly from your home. May your heart overflow with charity for your fellow man. May you not put your ignorance on public display like Meldrim Thomson during the 12 Days of Christmas – or any other time of the year.
Don’t be a Merry Meldrim.
Meldrim was governor of New Hampshire in 1977 at the time of his public display of ignorance. He sent a press release to journalists asking them keep Christ in Christmas by not using Xmas in place of Christmas. He claimed Xmas is a pagan spelling, a horrible four-letter word.
