Who Politicized Christmas?
A.Govea
Week Ending December 9th

About 10 years ago mostly at
retail associates and large offices people started saying Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. I for one did not think much about it then and truth is I still don’t, Pero (but) seems like many do. When someone says that to me,
I thank them and either say it back to them or Merry Christmas, either way
I just take it as a social pleasantry. And whether it is real, or their boss is making them say that it is not my right to judge.
Pero, I find that many seem to be insulted by that holiday term as if they are being denied some religious belief. To those people I say if anybody can shake your faith or cause you to become upset over this then maybe you need reexamine your faith. After all Christmas is not a time to judge other (never should be) but is a time to celebrate the birth of our Savior. His birth was meant to give us life and love not to worry about season greetings. As to who politized Christmas, I have my own opinion, but I will keep to myself as other should as well. So, with that in mind I wish you the best of the Holiday season, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. My wish is that this holiday season we find it in our heart to unite in the spirt of understanding and love for all. God Bless You
