After several delays I am finally getting my cards out today. As in the years past I am sending Christmas Cards, not Holiday Cards.
I have actually been counseled in the past that I may offend some and should not mail Christmas Cards. When I worked for a large corporation years ago it was company policy not to call them Christmas Cards.
Here is my response. LIGHTEN UP!
- Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas.
- Mele Kalikimaka, Mele Kalikimaka, Mele Kalikimaka, Mele Kalikimaka, (Mele Kalikimaka is Merry Christmas in Hawaiian).
If someone celebrates another holiday from another religion and sent me a card, I would not be bothered or insulted. If someone were to say a pray for some other religion I would be courteous and respect them by being quiet. If someone placed a religious display for their Holiday it would not bother me in the slightest. Why would a rational person be insulted by Merry Christmas?
After almost 2 seconds of thought I made a business decision that every year I will send Christmas Cards. If that costs me a piece of business it will be offset by any it may bring me.
So please go out and enjoy the Christmas Holidays with you family and have a safe and prosperous 2007.
