Last week on the Culture Quiz, we posed an interesting question concerning a poll taken  – if we had to sell a U.S.

Misunderstanding Christmas

 
We had a very interesting discussion on the WIKY Morning Show about the misconceptions of common Christmas legends.
 
First, the candy cane – you may have heard the story or read the email making the rounds for years about how an Indiana candy maker designed the candy cane to represent the story of Jesus.  Some think of the candy cane as a shepherd’s crook but the story goes that the candy maker made it a “J” for Jesus.

One Last Word on Veteran's Day

Thanks again to all the veterans who came to the LST 325 this morning for our sixth annual breakfast.  Looks like it was a record crowd; maybe twice the crowd we had last year.  Of course, the weather helped a lot.  A big thanks to Browning Funeral Home for underwriting the event as they have the last three years.  And again, thanks to the LST 325 volunteers who make it all happen.

This is making the rounds on Facebook today and I think it says it all -
