Pssst! Got a sec to chat?

We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk – whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.

Consider the daily Coffee Klatsch post as your VIP lounge – the primary comments thread for readers who'd like to chat about topics not related to the articles we're running. That way, everyone knows where to find each other, and each post's comments section remains on topic.

    Good morning folks! Why is December such a busy month? If they had a coffee klatsch pic of a woman on there, that would be me! I hope everyone is well, and I wish you travelers all safe travel to your destinations. Sir Biddle-I generally sign all my cards with Happy Holidays, but when in public, I say Merry Christmas to everyone. I guess there is nothing politically correct about me. I just like to be in the holiday spirit. So, Happy Holidays everybody!

    Not to politicize a blog, but do you say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays? Are we getting to politically correct as a society? Thoughts?

      "Happy Holidays" if I don't know which way someone rolls. I picked up the habit when I was putting myself thru school at a local grocery store. Cashiers were directed to say HH because "some of our customers are Jewish." Mgt wanted it that way and I wanted to play in their sandbox, so Hoppy Halidaze it is!

        Good day all! I just had lunch and am about to go on a walk.

        I'm not sure if I'll be able to weigh in this week [due to Morris practice tonight, dress rehearsal for a Morris gig (mixed into a Mummer's play that a local group is doing) tomorrow night, then the two performances, Friday night and Sunday morning).

      Yeah, gotta be politically correct in this country so Americans can consume everything and anything that they want.
