My info is that we are not allowed to wish anyone "Merry Christmas" anymore--especially if we live in California. If I make the mistake of wishing you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS , which I am right now--please
do not turn me in to the Christmas police :flowers: :thumbsup:

No worry EdBee mum is the word. :flowers: So, so very sad! :inlove: California is such a liberal state. Christmas being outlawed in this country is a travesty! It breaks my heart! In related news. A town in Colorado did not allow Christmas themed songs or signs with the words "Merry Christmas" in the Holiday Parade. :thumbsup: Parade

I bet though that the towns Mayor takes the day of Christmas and city hall is shut down. What a hypocrite!!!! It is also ironic though that Christmas remains a Federal Holiday.

Also last year a Colorado school did not allow any Christmas themed songs in the childrens Christmas Program (or as they decided to call it Holiday Program) For instance references to Christmas were changed to Winter. :trumpet:

:flowers: Hi there everyone...being a "Canucker", i don't quite get the drift of the chat as since i was a toddler and am now a "baby boomer", December 25th has always been a special day with families.
I think i have missed something here in the dialogue????
Anyway i would like to complement Scarlett in the efforts to spread the colour and spirit of Christmas in her post signature!!! It is really "nifty". and in the Spirit of Christmas i will sign of with "joyful cheers" to all. :trumpet:


:thumbsup: :inlove: <- <-me out and about shopping!!
I am relatively new into posting in this forum but enjoy the wealth of info and the spirit of the members!!!!!!!!!

The liberal left and civil rights advocates are changing the way Christian Symbols and Christmas is allowed to be displayed and viewed in this country. So as not to offend anyone of other faiths. But in the meantime Christians are being discrimanated against.



Thank you so much georgia I am just trying to spread Some Christmas Cheer! Just to let u know I was born in Newfoundland. :thumbsup: So want to go back someday! Merry Christmas, Scarlett

EDIT: Point taken Koan

Happy Kwanzaa! & Happy Hanukkah! May Your Season Be Bright!

Since we're not spreading any Holiday/Holyday Joy or Greetings anymore...

Don't forget to not wish a "Happy Hanukkah" to our Jewish friends and neighbors!
(Starts at sundown this evening through the 17th)

I know what y'all are thinking. "Oh brother, here she is, it's her again!" But, y'all know me, I can't pass this up! LOL :thumbsup:


All of this makes me furious. Did y'all notice that while we grant one right to one person or one group, everyone else's is taken away? There is no winning, not that this is a game by any means. It has always bothered me that people use XMAS rather than CHRISTMAS. One person told me the X was used to abbreviate but last I remembered elementary school English, X is not related to C. Another one told me that X represented the cross. Well, this would be cruel if you ask me. Christmas is the holiday to remember Christ's BIRTH, not DEATH.
It bothers me, regardless of the excuse but far be it from me to take away someone else's right.
And, in a nutshell, the ACLU MAKES ME SICK!!! (Enough said)
This politically correct CRAP has to stop, too. I have lots of friends of every race, religion, and creed. NOT ONE OF THEM is offended when someone wishes them "Happy Holidays" or "Merry Christmas". And that is the way it should be. I am white but if someone came up to me and said "Happy Kwanzaa" I would reply with "Happy Kwanzaa to you, too" with a smile.
Since my kids were in elementary school here in Fort Worth, Texas, it has always been "Winter Break", not "Christmas Vacation". That's fine. Whatever people do with that time off has no bearing on what you call it. I'm not offended by that term. But to raise hell and create havoc over someone wishing you a Merry Christmas is ridiculous. What is wrong with people? If I were in Saudi Arabia or some other Muslim country, I'd have NO problem wishing someone a "Happy Eid" or as they say "Eid Mubarak". If I was in Israel, I'd have NO problem wishing someone "Happy Hanukkah". Quite frankly, I'd have NO problem with anyone wishing me any of those things right here in the old USA.
Get a life people. Use your efforts to feed and clothe the homeless for crying out loud.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL!

Merry Christmas!

Yeah that Xmas CRAP people use makes me sick!

It takes Christ out of Christmas!

It has nothing to do with shortening the word!

Have a Good Christmas everyone!

:thumbsup: When it is Christmas I think of John Lennon...and the song Happy Christmas (War is Over) lyrics by Lennon/Ono.
This incredible man is no longer with us but he left us with his ideas and music that will never be forgotten such as the aforementioned song. A tremendous legacy.

As the first chorus goes....I don't think it can be said any better and by an artist who had profound respect for all cultures. It goes like this....

"A very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and for poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight.


And the Closing Chorus.........

"War is over, if you want it
War is over now
Happy Christmas"


I believe this most talented musician says it all in this song.
I hope that this song spreads good thoughts and karma as most truly he would want.
I play this song repeatedly over the season as it simply is so inciteful.

Have a good one, one and all!!!!!!!!!!!! :flowers:
