On this, my 1400th post, I'd like to ask the fine folks at Disneyland one question:
What possible reason do you have for not saying "Merry Christmas" in the holiday edition of the "It's a Small World" ride?
Sure, there it was in Spanish. And there it was in Hawaiian. In English? "Ho Ho Holidays." "Joy to the World." "Peace on Earth."
The ride was beautifully done up, with Christmas trees and Christmas ornaments and other symbols of Christmas. Don't worry, though. When you went through the predominantly Muslim or Buddhist or non-sectarian countries and continents, the theme turned to new year and the like.
I'm not advocating shoving Christmas down anyone's throats, mind you. But to neglect to have one "Merry Christmas" in English tossed in for those of us in, say, the United States or England or Canada?
Effin' pitiful, Disney. Wusses.
And now, a wholly unrelated photo of us on Space Mountain. Eldest ducking. Sister with eyes closed. Rip roaring screaming others.
