At this morning’s “Holiday” show at my daughter Violet’s nursery school, there were children dressed as Santa Claus, elves, snowflakes, gingerbread men, and
even a big bad wolf. And do you know what the concluding song was? “We
wish you a happy holidays, we wish you a happy holidays, we WISH you a happy holidays and a happy new year!”
Secular, ungrammatical — can’t say “holiday,” can we, because we might mean
“the” holiday — what rubbish! Aargh! What are we coming to?
