While Michigan gets a stale store bought pizza generic "happy Holidays", the lucky folks in Arizona get the Buddy's Pizza of Yore, Real Deal.
A 'holiday' message sent from Jan Brewer to Arizonans:
When I first became Governor, I issued an Executive Order that encourages the celebration of Christmas and Hanukkah and prohibits any censorship of these religious holidays. I encourage you to read the Executive Order here.
As you may know, elected officials throughout our country have attempted to strip both Christmas and Hanukkah of their meaning. Some officials even prohibited government employees from placing religious items of celebration at their desks, renamed Christmas trees as "holiday" trees, and renamed Menorahs as "candlesticks."
As Governor, I call things what they are...a Christmas Tree and a Menorah... and will gladly allow both Christmas and Hanukkah to be celebrated at the State Capitol. I encourage my colleagues and fellow elected officials to do the same.
Again, Merry Christmas to you and your family!
May God bless you, your home, the State of Arizona and the United States of America.
P.S. If you'd like, leave me a Christmas greeting on my Facebook.
Now THAT is leadership.
And how appropriate is that "Rosie the riveter" pose for this Michigan blog post?
