Tories lose the first skirmish in the war against ‘Season’s Greetings’

British Tory Season's Greetings

Just two years have passed since British Tory leader David Cameron derided Christmas cards which fail to mention the word “Christmas” as “insulting tosh.”

Not long enough for memories to fade. When this year’s Conservative Party cards went on sale emblazoned exclusively with “Season’s Greetings,” pseudo uproar ensued. One Tory back-bencher deemed them “totally unacceptable.” Lost over the hill and through the woods in politically correct land, never reaching grandmother’s house.

The online Conservative Shop has since added some “Wishing You a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year” cards to its “Season’s Greetings” stock. Although none with any message show a religious Christmas picture. No Christ Child in a manger. No Star of Bethlehem. No wise journeying wise men or watchful shepherds. Instead, each has an outline of the Conservative oak tree logo, within which is either a robin or one of four snowscapes (yawn).

It seems the first skirmish in the war against “Season’s Greetings” ends with British Tories losing the high ground they held last year as the Christmas party.
