Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!

So there I said it again. I can't remember how many times this year I wished people a Merry Christmas and not one complaint. I don't know who the people are that are offended but I have not meet a one. If I had it would be OK because we live in a country where religious freedom is part of fabric of our society. Bottom line you can believe the GOD of Abraham and his son and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ or in whatever you want. You see this is not a discussion about who is right or wrong but about believing in what you wish and being tolerant to those believe otherwise. You see when Christmas was established as a Holiday because it was about the birth of Jesus Christ. A celebration of his birth and to praise and honor him because he is the son of GOD. Now how Santa and all the gift giving got involved in this holiday I just can't say with certainty but I know GOD'S hand is in this because I believe he is the maker of Heaven and Earth and all things seen and unseen but I am not offended that you may beleive otherwise. It makes no sense for our government or others to insist we don't wish others a Merry Christmas because it might offend someone. Our ancestors came here as they were being persecuted because of there regilious beliefs. The results was the United States of America, one nation under GOD indiviable with liberity and justice for all. Let it just be that way; so if someone says Merry Christmas reply whatever you wish and like wise if someone says Happy Holidays do the same. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!

Yes I am glad you feel that way.  That is the whole problem, and the reason that courts and governments had to get involved.  People not only wishing a Merry Christmas, but shoving it down the throats of people who don't believe in it.  But if we can all agree that what ever the holiday is, Solstice, Hannukah, Christmas, Kwanza, what ever, we wish everyone the best, then I think we can all agree.
