Every Christmas season needs a Scrooge, and James Peters’ letter about the Brenau University Holiday Concert certainly fits the bill. Rather than enjoying a wonderful program of music, maybe Mr. Peters and company just prefer sitting in front of Fox News and listening to Bill O’Reilly vent about the collapse of Western civilization brought about by the red Starbucks coffee cup.
And the Brenau Holiday music program. What a shame! Back in my parents’ day, Christmas was routinely referred to as “Xmas.” No one complained, and those were wonderful times.
So in the story, old Scrooge finally saw the light, and maybe it’s not too late for Mr. Peters.
