The Importance of Saying Merry Christmas

Now at first it might seem like a trivial thing. I mean who really cares if people say “Merry Christmas” or not? The thing is, something as small as this is no longer being left up to the individual but is increasingly being forbidden by businesses all over, even those who are supposed to be more “family friendly.” Remember stripping religious rights away from a people doesn’t happen all at once. It happens when a little boy is forbidden to draw Jesus in a picture at his school. It happens when the valedictorian has her microphone turned off because she mentions Jesus. It happens every time someone wishes you a Happy Holiday or Season’s Greetings instead of Merry Christmas. It happens incrementally. Then before you know you wake up and there are no more Bibles being sold, there are underground churches because they are forbidden to exist in public. Everything you thought could never happen suddenly has and when you think back on it you will realize all this happened when saying Merry Christmas was forbidden and people thought it was too trivial to pay attention to.

So when tomorrow comes wish people a Merry Christmas, not Happy Holidays, not Season’s Greetings but Merry Christmas. After all Christ has done and sacrificed for us it is the least we can do. So I will start you off-MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY READERS (AND EVEN TO MY HATERS!) AND I HOPE ALL OF YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL NEW YEAR!!!
