It’s Merry Christmas


Excuse me.

What seems to be the reason for the season?

If you can’t say Merry Christmas why say anything at all? Happy Holidays just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

Many folks are trying to be “politically correct”. Politically correct about what?

There would be no holiday season if it weren’t for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. That’s Christ as in Christmas.

Non-believer groups around the country have protested the Nativity scene at some public places saying a representation of the birth of Jesus shouldn’t be placed on public property.

Once a group in New Jersey placed billboards on an interstate declaring, “You know it’s a myth. This season, celebrate reason!”

That prompted a church to place billboards saying, “You know it’s real: this season celebrate Jesus. Merry Christmas!”

Please tell me why non-believers take time off from work, give gifts and attend events? It should be just normal activities for them. They should just ignore Christmas celebration and go about their daily lives.

Granted there are other holidays this time of year.

There is Hanukkah and New Year’s Day. For those it’s Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year. Those are fine but Christmas is the main event both spiritually and economically.

So for the rest of us, we can go about our business of saying Merry Christmas. It has a nice ring to it.


As 2020 continues its relentless assault on all of us in so many ways at least there was good news this week about the vaccines being administered.

That is awesome news and we can’t wait until everyone is vaccinated to hopefully get lives back to normal.
