The Merry Christmas Conspiracy Or Lack Of

I am perplexed by the Happy Holiday Season Conspiracy. It is as if you don't say Merry Christmas you are dissing the whole Christian Religion. I have never meant Happy Holiday Season to leave out Christmas. It is an all inclusive whatever or whoever you worship I wish you a Happy Holiday Season. Believe it or not, Christians don't have a lock on the holidays around Christmastime.

I think that is is silly to suggest that by not saying Merry Christmas you are participating in a conspiracy/political correctness gone awry. We have so many problems in this world right now, does it matter what one says to wish another person a good holiday season? I think that the Christians are developing a complex that they are being persecuted. It just isn't so. When millions of people around the world are being killed for their choice of religion, that is persecution.

My Mother was a Jew. She celebrated Chanukah around the same time as Christmas. Now I don't know of any of my Jewish friends that insist that we all go around saying Happy Chanukah. I do not want to leave anyone out when I wish them well. So I say Happy Holiday Season. Happy Holidays is a new world way of saying Happy Holy Days. Which fits any religion around Christmas time.

Not everyone believes as you do or I do. I do not think I am the one to tell them they are worshiping the wrong God or saying the wrong thing at the right time. I don't think it should matter what I say for the Holidays, but the way it is meant is the more important part of the message. So when I say Happy Holiday Season, what I am saying is, "I don't know who you worship. I don't know what you celebrate. But whatever that is, I wish you the best."

I hope that people who are offended by my saying, Happy Holiday Season will take into account that I am trying and will continue to try to be an all inclusive person. If I care for you, I will say Happy Holiday Season. It should not be a problem what is said, if the way it is said is with loving feeling.

I hope in the coming years we can find it in our hearts to welcome all religions, creeds and belief systems into our hearts at Christmas. Don't get upset if I don't say Merry Christmas. I am not forgetting that Baby Jesus was born on Christmas Day. Though that fact means more to some than others. It is not meant as a slight or a denigration of Christmas. Not all people are Christians. True fact. But that is ok. Not everyone has to be just like you or just like me. It is what makes America great. So if I greet you with Happy Holiday Season I mean it genuinely. It is just meant as it says, "Happy Holy Days what ever your affiliation, I wish you the best."

The truth is most of Christmas is secular. Santa Claus is nowhere in the Bible at Christmas or any other time. The decoration of the tree is secular. The gifts are probably thinly related to the Three Wise Men and their gifts. So if we wanted to get really Christian Reality, we would not celebrate with Santa Claus or a lot of nice gifts for the kids. So how about we declare a cease fire on the false idea of a Christmas takeover by the Philistines. There truly is no such thing.

If we want to worry about anything it is Bill O Reilly talking about the take over of Christmas. We should be more worried about feeding the poor on Christmas. Or figuring out how to stop all the deaths from guns. How to pay for the aging infrastructure of the United States is worth losing sleep over. Or any of the many and assorted sordid situations that we find ourselves faced with.I think that the problems of the world are more important than how we wish each other a Happy Holiday Season.
