There is NO war on Christmas

Well, here I am again, writing another post about the non-existent war on Christmas. I almost made it all the way through the season, but I can’t help myself, I just have to mention it.

There is NO war on Christmas. You are welcome to say whatever you want to say. You may have a boss that prefers you to say Happy Holidays rather than Merry Christmas because it is more inclusive – that does not constitute a war.

When I say Merry Christmas to someone, I do not first check to be sure they celebrate Christmas. I sincerely hope that everyone has a great day on the 25th of December, whether they celebrate a holiday on that day or not.

And when I say Happy Holidays, it does NOT mean that you are not to have a good Christmas, or Ramadan, or anything else you celebrate. It is actually meant to be inclusive. I hope that all the holidays celebrated in this hunk of time are happy for you. You do not have to celebrate any of them to have a good day on the day that one is celebrated by others.

Feel free to wish me a happy whatever you want. I am not offended when I am wished a Happy St. Patrick’s Day just because I am not Irish. I am not implying that everyone is Norwegian when I wish them a Happy Syttende Mai on May 17th. I will not be offended if you wish me a Happy Hanukkah just because I am not Jewish. And if you say Season’s Greetings to me, I will smile and wish you the same – I will not assume that you hate Christmas.

It does not matter what color your coffee cup is, or what is written on it, or what holidays you celebrate or ignore. I hope that everyone had and has a happy and healthy December and January.
