It's sort of like life insurance - you don't have to buy it but every person deserves the right to hear what its about whether they want it or not. Its called being informed, after that the choice is yours.

BTW - Merry Christmas to you and yours.

It is the Politically Correct/Incorrect argument of choice in November and December it seems when I turn on the TV or look at news online.



With all of this nonsense going on, my question to Christians who are upset about Christmas being removed from greetings is this. Why is the word Christmas so important to defend? I'm personally much more offended by the massive marketing campaigns, the obligatory gift buying marketing that pounds you from all radios and every store sign, and the excessive food that starts on Thanksgiving and many people choose to pig out all the way through New Year's, especially leading up to Christmas with all the "Christmas treats".

During the time all this happens, a lot of people rack up debt they can barely afford to pay, and add pounds from overeating, all in the name of Christmas. Shouldn't this be more of a concern for Christians to tackle? I would think poor stewardship of money and junking up the body is a much bigger problem for Christians than whether or not the person selling them the excess gifts and food finishes the transaction with a Merry Christmas.

Maybe I'm missing something...
I think it has to do with the tradition that was passed on thru the years, they way we were raised. Kind of like when you smell a scent and suddenly you are instantly in that moment of the memory. It has been generations of passing this on "Merry Christmas" and it has a powerful childhood memory attached to it. I hear what ur saying, bottom line is the Corporate World took it over and cashed in on it and wrangled the meaning out it. But it still holds a close tug to the heart when we hear it or say it. In a world were there is such bizarre spin on everything, it feels good for us to show our kindness, never intended to offend, but offering our hand.

The spirit of your post shows that the Corporate World has not hardened your heart.

You are not alone, friend....
