Now, I haven’t heard it, but…
We got a note today from a Stony Point resident saying he heard a radio ad for the New York State Lottery in which the announcer runs through some favorite “holiday songs,” including one called “Holiday Bucks.”
The song is then played to the tune of “Silent Night.”
The reader was disturbed by this use of a song about the birth of Jesus. He asked if the Lottery people “would feel as free to use a song about another religionÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sacred figure.”
I’ll be listening for the ad over the next few days.
