Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays

December 24th, 2018 at 07:02 pm

FYI, this is not a $$$ related post.

This morning, my kids and I were debating whether it was appropriate to say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays. My son told me that one of his public school teachers counseled a classmate for saying Merry Christmas. I thought the "counseling" was probably exaggerated but it prompted our talk.

I have always wished friends and others Merry Christmas. I say it and accept the wishes out of wanting to express general love and respect and share what gives me hope and purpose. I am not offended when friends wish me a Happy Hanukkah. I accept the Happy Hanukkah with the same.

So, new blog friends, please accept my Merry Christmas with the spirit and intent meant. I wish you all well.

    Merry Christmas to you, as well. There's a song by a group called Go Fish that talks about how folks aren't PC if they call it Christmas. It is on You Tube and talks about how we used to say Merry Christmas to everyone even if they weren't Christian and how we accepted it because it was the nice thing to do. How society has changed, and not necessarily for the best.
