Posts Tagged ‘Holiday’

I had someone the other day say, “have a Happy Holiday”.  Made me think why don’t they just say, “have a Merry Christmas”?  Well, I believe its because the stores have trained people that you shouldn’t say “Christmas”.  All the stores are wanting to be so politically correct that they don’t dare say “Christmas”.  They love the fact that we will spend 450 BILLION (thats the real number, not an exaggerated one) this year on buying gifts for the 25th day of December- Christmas!  They play “Christmas” music in the stores. They decorate for Christmas with Christmas trees. They hang Christmas lights.  The run sales and ads up until Christmas.  They have specials on shipping, that if ordered by a certain day, you will have it in time for Christmas! Yet, they want to change the name to Holidays?  Holidays (plural) would refer to Christmas and New years day right?  Whens the last time you got a gift for “Happy New years day” under your “Happy new years day tree”?

It just drives me nuts.  I will say Merry Christmas, and when I do, I mean that I hope you have a great Christmas day celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Oops, I said it, the word “Jesus”.  That is whole new topic and blog post for another day! 🙂
