Bah humbug

Dear Editor:With regard to Elsa Van Leuven's letter of Nov. 11, "Where is Christmas," I, too, am dismayed to once again read that our traditional Christmas parade has morphed into the generic Holiday Lane Parade. However, I sense a trend here, so it's best that I get on board. To this end, my decorations are now out and ready to adorn my Holiday tree. There will be no Christmas presents under the tree. There will, instead, be Holiday presents. And one last thing. I needn't put cookies and milk out for Santa. He comes on "Christmas" Eve. I'll miss the jolly old elf, but, noting no Christmas preparations here, he will undoubtedly pass me by, opting for a more appropriate Christmas-friendly house. -- Charlene Slocum, Downey
