We have just completed the ugliest campaign season that I have ever seen in my lifetime. Now, the term "fiscal cliff" is the big thing and it sounds like doomsday for all of us.

As we enter into the Christmas season, wouldn't it be nice if we could have the freedom to enjoy Christmas music as we enter the stores, see Nativity scenes and be able to absorb what Christmas truly is about? Wouldn't it be nice if the atheists would set aside their "I am offended rhetoric" and those who want to disband Christianity would take a break from their anger and just let the season of love be? Wouldn't it be nice?
