In this politically correct world we live it seems some would
have us stop our tradition of wishing everyone we meet a Merry
Christmas. These same people tell us that Happy Holidays is a
less offensive phrase. To them we say bless your heart and
I come from an age when we had nativity scenes not seasonal
displays, Christmas trees not holiday trees, and Christmas
wreaths on our doors not Winter wreaths. These same people who
tell us what to call everything involving Christmas so as not
to be offensive to others, never tell us who these others are.
At our house we don’t get offended when those of differing
religions celebrate their holidays, unless it involves the
blood of animals and nudity in the back yard. We don’t tell
those of other religions what to do and feel they should do
the same by us.
America is supposed to be a melting pot of numerous religions,
nationalities, languages, and customs. We are supposed to have
rights to keep us diverse and allow us our differences while
being able to speak our minds.
We fully intend to enjoy Christmas by visiting with family
and enjoying a Christmas meal. We will return to regular posting
Comments are always welcome.
