Default Merry Christmas to All

One thing that seems to bug me a bit. And that is around this time of the year
we notice the difference between three holidays and call them respectively
by their names:
(e.g. Thanksgiving Day, New Years Day). But when it comes to CHRISTMAS
we suddenly decide to say instead Happy Holidays! Rather than Merry Christmas.
It appears the word Christmas is disappearing. Is this a political correct thing
or what? As for me I unequivocally say to all who may hear
:

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

You don't want to "offend" people

I couldn't type that with a straight face

I think part of the reason people say "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" is so they do not accidentally instult someone who may not celebrate Christmas, and instead may celebrate Quanza (don't know if I spelled it right), Haunaka, may not be religious at all, or celebrates some other form of religious practice. I tend to say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas if I do not know the person's religion, but if I do know they are Christian I do say Merry Christmas, and if they're Jewish I say Happy Haunaka.

That is my take as well! I never want anyone to insult me by saying I am being politically correct. In fact it wants to make me Puke when people say quote "To Be Politically Correct I ???" It is and always will be Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in my book! But America was founded on Christian principles and would be a lot better off today if they were adhered to. I am not saying that is my business if they choose not to be a Christian or a church goer! Nothing wrong with that mind you! I am just saying to practice what the Good Book teaches for your fellow man is not a bad idea. Stop and think about it! No Pledge of the Elegance in Schools, a student can't pray, no corporal punishment in school (reasonable issued by a qualified person) Can't speak freely anymore without some thin skinned smuck complaining of being racist or violating his or her civil rights or what ever. Remember at this point about what I said about treating your fellow man! The inclination of not saying how you feel because of politically correctness. Lowes for example under the gun for retracting their support for a TV Show that was going to air! Where does it stop. Remember also the Obama administration was caught spying regular citizens personal e-mails. But yet have implemented such atrocities as Fast & Furious. Oh My!
Bottom line it will be Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and if you do not like its "TUFF"! If someone feels different than I do that is fine I respect their views. But like those liberals and mamby pambys in our Nation do, they cry and cry and want to pass laws prohibiting us from our views. I am sure they would like to pass laws prohibiting you and I from using the words Merry Christmas because it might offend someone! B.S! Ain't happening! Just so they know it and for the record. Kind of like taking our second amendment rights from us! COME GET EM!

Amen! Instead of being "politically correct" can't we be just CORRECT? I say call it what it is - MERRY CHRISTMAS (btw none of that "X"mas stuff) to all! Enjoy the family and be well this year and next.
