If our paths cross in the next nine days, I might wish you a “Merry Christmas,” but it’s just as likely that I’ll say “happy holidays.”
Personally, I celebrate Christmas and constantly try to remind myself the real reason for the season is the birth of Jesus Christ. But, I’m well aware of and perfectly OK with the fact that you may not.
As Americans we are blessed to have freedom of religion. To me this means, I have as much of a right to celebrate Christmas as you do to celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or nothing at all.
