OK I am on the opposite end of many of you on this subject.
Some of you are angry that saying Merry Christmas isn’t politically correct anymore. Get over it. We live in America. America is a melting pot. In a melting pot, not everyone celebrates Christmas.
So why would you wish a Merry Christmas to somebody that does not celebrate the holiday? It makes no sense. If I know it’s not your birthday today I’m not going to say Happy Freaking Birthday to you.
It’s the holiday season. Don’t expect that everyone you run into on the street or at the company party celebrates Christmas. Hello!!! Melting Pot!
I know people that make it a point to complain and say, “Well to me it’s Christmas and I’m going to a Christmas party and I’m going to say Merry Christmas to everyone that I see.” Umm OK… but the company doesn’t have a Hanukkah Party or a Kwanzaa Party or a party for people that came here from India and are attending the party just to fit into the crowd.
It’s the Holidays! Stop being so damn stubborn. Here’s an idea. If you are in the company of people that you know are Christians and celebrate Christmas, by all means wish them a Very Merry Christmas. If you are with people and not sure what they celebrate, how about saying Happy Holidays!
If you can’t come to the realization that YOUR’s is not the only holiday being celebrated in December, and can’t respect the beliefs of others, good luck in your little bubble. Beware of pointed objects though. You wouldn’t want the real world to burst your bubble and poke you in the ass. Then again, a few drops of your own blood just might remind you why your ancestors came here in the first place.
Happy Holidays and may you be blessed by whatever or whomever it is that you believe in.
