Happy Secular Occasion? No, Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas! I sincerely hope that nobody feels threatened by that. I never felt threatened or uncomfortable by someone wishing me Happy Hanukkah. I was grateful for the kind wishes and hardly felt threatened. I don't think I would feel threatened if someone wished me a wonderful Ramadan. Again, thanks for the kind wishes. I think those who prefer a secular world need to come up with a better argument. This "discomfort" and "threatened" crap just doesn't hold water.
What prompted this? A funny thing happened to Ol' BC at the workplace. Business was slow as it always is during the Christmas season. There were "Christmas" cards on display in the various departments. Sooooo.....Ol' BC began a count. Thirty-four cards( I think) displayed. Three referenced Christmas. I found that somewhat odd for a "Christmas " card. I asked a couple of people what those things were and they both said "Christmas cards." Funny how hardly any mention Christmas. Maybe this "secular occasion" crap has more weight that I thought. Doesn't Christmas celebrate a specific event? I know here Colonel Hogan's public children's prisons now have "winter break." We had "Christmas vacation."
I'm failing to see the benefit. I'm just glad that in this country we don't cut people's heads off that don't go along with the holiday.
Just a thought.
