comment Is “Mankind” used with “is” or “are.”
I'm a speaker of AE, but I spend a lot of time around speakers of BE. I'm sure that I almost always hear "are" in more formal writing (press releases, news reports, etc.), but I'll have to take notice of how often I hear it in casual speech.

comment What's the meaning of “ran for”
Think of it as "the hare ran [for the sake of] his life."

comment Alternative to “Merry Christmas”
@FumbleFingers: So you're thinking something more along the lines of a fractious Festivus?
