Do You Say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?
Christians around the world have been celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ for over 2000 years now. The day set for celebrating is December 25th. Usually starting around the first of December people would say their goodbyes with a Merry Christmas.
In recent years someone thought it unfair for other religions to say Merry Christmas and thought that everyone should be included and that Happy Holidays would be more appropriate.
Personally we still believe that Merry Christmas is a reminder of Christ's birth and it should stay like that.
All other religions have their special days of celebration and have not to our knowledge included the Christians in their celebrations.
We have no bones to pick with any other religions. Be part of our celebrations on December 25th if you wish, but don't try to change a tradition that has been going on for thousands of years.
Let's start a new day of celebration and festivities, how about sometime in March. We can all greet each other with "Happy Holidays".
Have a safe and happy Christmas,
