'My Big, Fat Greek' Christmas!

Editor:

Who can forget the character in "My Big, Fat Greek Wedding" who found a way to derive every word in the English language from Greek.

Christmas is being attacked, and it is time to take a stand.

The French say "Joyeux Noel." The "No" in Noel comes from the Greek word "North," the star that led the three wise men to the baby Jesus. The Spanish say "Feliz Navidad." The "Navid" in Navidad comes from the Greek word "David," the one who slayed Goliath. The Italians say, "Buon Natale." The "Na" in Natale comes from the Greek word "Nativity," meaning the birth of Christ. Some of us say, "Merry Christmas." The "mas" in Christmas comes from the Greek word "More" as in more Christ.

Buon Natale! Joyeux Noel! Feliz Navidad! Ho! Ho! Ho! Santa Claus is Coming! Merry Christmas!
