We prefer to call it Christmas Break here in Dunwoody.

Living in Dunwoody, we could easily call it the "idiots" break considering the dozens of ridiculous news stories that have come out of this city during 2012. As former Councilman Ross remarled in a story last week, Dunwoody is garnering to much bad press!

Right on, working man..its Christmas Break for Christmas Day and New Years Day!. I can't stress enough I fear for us when we continue to remove Christ from our venacular. He has brought us to independence, sustained us through wars fought fro our freedom to unfortunately try to dismiss him in the good times...as the good book says.."my spirit will not always strive with man..." I don't look forward to the day he decides to move away from us on earth. Merry Christmas, liberal and conservative alike!

I know this issue has become political, and I'm not here to argue that point. But There are plenty of kids in school who are not Christian (the MJCCA community comes to mind). Christmas break would have the same meaning to them as Hannukah break would have to me. You know, from a journalist's perspective, winter break is accurate, which is why I chose to use it.

No worries on your perspective. Merry Christmas!

@Jason - Not political at all, you just have a guy with 20+ names here that has nothing better to do than spam your board because he is such a loser.....

Merry Christmas to Rob and Jason and Jimmie. And to all the school children as well.

Must pay well, Rob. Anyways I like a good discussion based on the merits.

Only takes one personality to be successful Rob. And, even to you, from the only ONE of me, Merry Christmas.
