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
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!
