Entry: "Merry Christmas!"

Me and my wife Cheryl were just discusssing how lately we've noticed that slowly but surely the mainstream media and even most major employers have been removing all references to Christmas from their public vocabulary. Have you noticed that instead of displaying the phrase "Merry Christmas", more and more advertisers and companies have been pressured to replace that with "Happy Holidays" or "Seasons Greetings" or some other similar "watered-down" version. All in the name of being politically correct or succumbing to the fear of offending someone who may not believe in Christ. My goodness folk it seems to me like we've sunk so low as a nation now where it's almost a crime to acknowledge Christ in a public forum? Christmas is a holiday created to specifically observe the birth of Christ. In any event, there's no shame in my game when I say Merry Christmas to you and I mean ALL of you, regardless of your religious affiliation. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Happy Holidays if you must and even Seasons Greetings for those who are more comfy with that, but first and foremost...Merry Christmas!!!!

To all my web fambily :o)
Merry Christmas to you
and all your loved ones!
