OK, stop the nonsense

This whole anti-Christmas campaign has got to stop. It seems like that is all I am hearing about lately; the newspaper, tv, the radio. You can't get away from it. Now, I understand that some people are not religious and that is ok with me. My wife isn't really a religious person, but she still says Merry Christmas. It's just a word. When you say Merry Christmas to someone, you are saying, "I hope you and your family have a happy day on the 25th of December. Most people (not all) are not saying, celebrate Christ our Lord Jesus on the 25th of December or else you are going to hell. Sure, there are SOME people like that but the large majority who wish you a Merry Christmas are simply wishing you a good day. But all of this controversy now and talk of changing everything to Happy Holidays is just sickening. Are we going to now shop for a holiday trees? Are we now going to sing holiday carols? Are we going to watch on tv, "A Holiday Story" and "How the Grinch Stole the Holidays?" Probably not, but if some people get their way, that appears what it might come to. And so what if you aren't religious and someone says Merry Christmas. I wouldn't get pissed off if someone said Happy Hanukah. I would just thank them and take the well wishes. GET OVER IT!!! Oh, and I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas...

Yeah, that's bullshit. There's so much I could say, but you did a good job.
I swear some people aren't happy unless they're stiring up shit. I mean really, don't you have anything better to do with your time? Get over yourselves...

There is far too much nitpicking going on these days. The Holidays encompass Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanauka and New Year's. Each holiday has it's own name so we say Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas etc. It is silly to try to get everyone to say only Happy Holidays. It is just so generic. I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. Happy New Year to everyone! Oh, except people who celebrate Chinese New Year. Yours is yet to come. Gung Hay Fat Choy!
BIG SIGH!!
