‘Merry Christmas’ Beating Out ‘Happy Holidays’ « Liveshots

Not that big a deal to me; but interesting. I think overall its a good sign. These aren't government establishments, afterall and the season is primarily about "Christmas." But, again, as long as no one tries to stop me from celebrating Christmas within my Church and Family, it doesn't really matter what the secular world does. But, I do believe that "overall," the Christian Faith is a peaceful, loving religion and is not a bad thing to acknowledge. Anybody have a problem with this?

Yeah, from Fox News, and the information comes from Christian conservative groups.

Where are the numbers to back up their "assumption"

Not that it matters to me. I don't care what people do with their own money. I'm just pissed at my city, state, and country spending my tax dollars to celebrate Christs Mass

Really? What city, state and country tax dollars are you referring to? That would be highly unusual in these times. This article only refers to the private sector, who have the choice.

I use both quite as frequently as the other and I'm not bothered either way. IMO, whatever makes people jollier (and not frothing-at-the-mouth you-know-whats) works for me.

Do you see the city and state in my title? Christmas parade, holiday lighting, etc. Just about every city in the country is doing it.

Hell, the feds just lit a giant Christmas tree on the White House lawn with my money.

I don't support government sponsored religious ceremonies. Personal, I don't care. I just question their data source, since its not listed.

Doesn't the White House call it a Holiday Tree, though? I do know I read last year that the Obamas had tree decorations that included Muslim and Transgender ornaments so I don't think they are too "traditional." Happy now?

No. If they want to buy a small tree for their living area of the white house, fine. Then they can put whatever they want on it.

But when its my money being spent, I'd rather the government spend money on more important things than a tree, regardless of what its called. And I still think they call it a Christmas tree.
