leo wreathTis the season for people to bemoan a “war” on Christmas.

I am so tired of this.

There is no war on Christmas – nobody is trying to keep you from celebrating however you choose.

We are merely asking that you not expect or demand that everyone celebrate in a manner predicated on your personal beliefs.

I have never heard of anyone being offended by someone wishing them a Merry Christmas. Perhaps it happens, and if it does that’s really sad. But for the most part, I believe people just don’t want to be told that Merry Christmas is the only form of well-wishing that is acceptable at this time of year. People want to wish you well with a greeting that expresses their own feelings / beliefs of the season.

On the same note, nobody is taking the “Christ” out of Christmas. If you believe Jesus is the reason for the season, that’s terrific. You should celebrate Christmas accordingly. However, Jesus is not the reason for the season for everyone. We simply want to be free to celebrate according to our own personal beliefs.

So I wish everyone Merry Merry and Happy Happy.


  1. Great post, Terri. I just saw a post on Facebook by a Christian having a fit about saying “Happy holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.” I have no problem with however people want to say it, & I always try to remember that Christmas is not a holiday for everyone & that everyone has a right to celebrate whatever they want whenever they want however they want & to have their right to their own beliefs & traditions respected. Contrary to what some people believe, this whole damn planet of seven billion people does not revolve around Christians!! Have a great December, whatever you celebrate, or whether you celebrate anything at all!
