I have been reading all the posts arguing and whining about who "can" celebrate what holiday and other such nonsense. Tell the truth, is it REALLY so hard to just have a Happy Holiday Season?
This is supposed to be a season of good will towards one another and of celebrations.
Christians ... Christmas is NOT the only holiday celebrated during December so pull the candy cane out of your arse and get over it. You do not own this time of year (or any other for that matter). If you get wished a "Happy Holiday" ... ACCEPT IT! Tell them "Merry Christmas" in return. Would that be so difficult? Celebrate Christmas and leave everyone else to their holidays.
Non-Christians ... and you can stop getting your knickers in knots as well. We know the early church were blood-thirsty murderers and thieves. We know they "borrowed" many traditions already in place and claimed them as their own. We also know there are many Christians today that refuse to accept the history of their holidays so there is really no need to keep beating your head against a brick wall, it will eventually cause brain damage.
Really, the continued pettiness about who gets to celebrate what sort of kills the meaning of the season. Why not argue/debate over which Christmas song is better ... you all will lose because "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" are the BEST. Also for the record, the BEST Christmas movies are Bad Santa (uncut version), A Christmas Story, Jingle All the Way, Scrooged and Lethal Weapon.
I wish everyone a Joyous and Love-filled Holiday Season! May your holidays be merry and bright.
