Newspeak At The New Scientist

In "The New Scientist" magazine's current issue the proselytising atheists on the editorial team have resolutely avoided any mention of Christmas, choosing instead to refer to the twenty-fifth of December as "the Holiday Season." What the heck these arrogant geeks think the word "holiday" means I have no idea but it is obviously not the official definition.

I wish we had a weekly periodical in the U.K. that reported on science as comprehensively as "The New Scientist" but without its pomposity and smugness. Quite honestly its sermonising can be anything but scientific at times.
