Ferchrissakes, Cultural Christians, get it bloody right!

I’ve just heard Geraldine ‘Ma’ Doogue, hosting the ABC1 program Compass, refer to Christmas as “the biggest event on the Christian calendar.”

Last week a young chap in my office referred to Christmas as “the day we were saved.”

Another colleague, who actually knows what she’s talking about, corrected him thus: “Christmas is when our Redeemer was born. We were actually saved at Easter.”

Ahem. Now, what’s the biggest event on the Christian calendar?


Christmas is in fact the biggest event on the Capitalist calendar (ignoring chocolate sales).

Merry Christmas to all readers! And to all non-readers too.
