So I'm surfing the internet today, reading the paper, watching the news, and not once do I read or hear the words, "Merry Christmas."

Seems the media thinks that isn't P.C., so instead now all I hear is "Happy Holidays"

Oh sure, we can say Happy Thanksgiving, Happy 4th, Happy New years, Happy Easter, but we can't say Merry Christmas because it might offend those that don't believe in Jesus.

As a Christian this just burns me up! I'm not a Jew but I'm not offended at the Jews celebrating Hanukah, the Muslims celebrating Ramadan, etc.

Why do we have to bend, especially in the USA to all other faiths? I'm just tired of the hypocrisy, especially on a holiday that I hold dear. When did the majority become the minority? I'll step off my soapbox now.

Oh yea, I hope everyone has a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

P.S. I'm sorry if this offends anyone. If it does get over it. Now I feel better...hehe

I was going to post another thread so as not to hijack but... I heard a Constitutional lawyer on the radio. He stated that the official national holiday in the US, on the official calendar for December, is shown as Christmas Day. The only month with 2 national holidays is November - Veteran's Day & Thanksgiving. November is the only month that should be celebrated as Happy Holidays.
Again, Merry Christmas!

I heard the same thing. Federal law states it is Christmas day. Why ignore federal law? Here is the law.

I posted this in the jungle and didnt get much of a responce. I think it fits here

Twas the month before Christmas

When all through our land,

Not a Christian was praying Nor taking a stand.


See the PC Police had taken away,

The reason for Christmas - no one could say.

The children were told by their schools not to sing,

About Shepherds & Wise Men & Angels & things.

It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say

December 25th is just a 'Holiday.'

Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks & credit

Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!

CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod

Something was changing, something quite odd!

Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa

In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.

As Targets were hanging their trees upside down

At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.

At K-Mart & Staples & Penny's & Sears

You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.

Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty

Are words that were used to intimidate me.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen

On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!

At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter

To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith

Forbidden to speak of salvation & grace

The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged & discarded

The reason for the season, stopped before it started.

So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'

Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, choose what you say

Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS,

not Happy Holiday!

Please, all Christians join together and

wish everyone you meet

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!
