Merry Christmas!

You know, I almost feel dirty for saying that. Christmas has become such a dirty word in a America.

“Don’t say ‘Merry Christmas’ to anyone. You may offend them. Use ‘Happy Holidays!'”

It’s incredible. My wife and I were in Wal Mart the other day, and as we were checking out, my wife told the lady “Merry Christmas”, to which the lady sheepishly replied, “Uhh. Happy Holidays?” with an sense of “Am I saying this correctly?”

Scary. You can’t say “Merry Christmas” without people flinching.

96% of America celebates Christmas, yet we get our hand slapped if we say it.

In New York last week, Jews were passing out pamplets letting people know it was okay to say, “Merry Christmas.” Wow. Leave it to the Jewishs people to bring the Oy! back in Joy!

I have to laugh, though. They tell us to say “Happy Holidays”, yet the word ‘holiday’ comes from the words “holy day”. So, by saying “Happy Holidays!” aren’t you implying that it’s a religious day anyway?

Let’s just cancel Christmas. Arrr!
