are you listening?
On the TV muds-a-slinging.
Not only has the retail world conspired to make us all hate Christmas before it is even December with the constant ramming of decorations, candy and gift buying hints down our throats. Hmmmm...perhaps there is some militant retail agenda going on here...
No, it is not enough that we have been enduring Christmas programming since before Halloween, now the news networks have to get in on the fight.
Merry Christmas vs. Happy Holidays.
Militant anti-Christmas liberals are trying to take away your Mrrrrican rights as a Christian to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
For Pete's sake.
Let's try this.
Salesperson: Happy Holidays!
You: Thank you!
Person on the Street: Merry Christmas!
You: And to you, also!
Do we really care if someone says Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays? I mean, if some complete stranger is taking the time to say something NICE to you, is it really his or her problem if you take offense to how he/she said it? I know I'm hopelessly out of date with all these new things for liberals and conservatives to be all offended about, but this is what my momma taught me. If you know some-one is Christian, you send them a Merry Christmas card. If you know some-one is Jewish, you send them a Happy Hannuakah(sorry about the spelling, but I have to leave for work in like one minute). If you don't know, you send them a Season's Greetings or Happy Holiday card.
It's called being polite.
And if some-one says the "wrong" thing to you, you let it go, smile and return the greeting. After all, tis the season.
Sigh. I used to get sick of "this time of the year" around December 15th. Now it's more like October 1st.
Thor sez: Does this mean no presents? Because I was going to ask for a kitten this year.
