Christmas is coming up and some people will be “daring” and wish other people a … “Merry Christmas”, as opposed to “Happy Holidays”.
You celebrate Quanza, or Kwanza ? I wish you a happy Kwanza. If you celebrate Hanukkah, i wish you Happy Hanukkah. And if you celebrate Christmas i wish you a Merry Christmas. To wish “Happy Holidays” is not specific and especially not personal.
I’m not a vishy vashy person and to greet others or sending good wishes is something personal, thus why make it unspecific and impersonal by saying:”Happy Holidays?”
Veteran’s day, MLK Day, 4th of July, President’s day, etc. are ” Holidays”, thus someone wishing ” Happy Holidays”, which one exactly is meant ? We gots plenty of holidays in this country.
I’m no fan of political correctness; political correctness is for prejudice folks trying to cover up they’re prejudice. I’m not prejudice and wouldn’t want to be mistaken for one, either, thus try to avoid being politically correct at all times.
I proudly say ” Merry Christmas” to anyone and everyone – in fact, i like saying it ‘cuz it’s so “daring” nowadays with most believing they have to say ” Happy Holidays” so not to offend anyone.
Seriously, who’ll be offended when someone wishes ” Merry Christmas” ? It’s not a curse word ?
Thus Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates Christmas. Happy Hanukkah to everyone celebrating Hanukkah. Happy Kwanza to those celebrating Kwanza. And to the rest of you all who celebrate neither
Season Greetings 🙂
