We are currently celebrating a federal holiday ...Christmas! And I'd like to be able to say "Merry Christmas" wherever and whenever I want. And I don't want to have to apologize for doing so. I am offended that some companies are forbidding their employees from saying, "Merry Christmas" to their customers. I resent the fact that some companies have elected to remove all signage which references CHRISTMAS not because they WANT to but because they've received complaints from customers who do not celebrate Christmas. I resent that my daughter is not permitted to display her Nativity Set at her elementary school; but her classmate has been permitted to display a Menorah and talk about Hanukkah and dreidels. I am angered that people have made specific requests to have the Nativity Set removed from the fronts of Government buildings. And I resent that a cross (which stood for 75 years in memory of fallen soldiers) had to be moved from the cemetery which was owned by local government. And a tree that is decorated and stands in front of a government building must be called a HOLIDAY tree and not a CHRISTMAS tree? What the heck is going on with this country? Are any of you experiencing things like this in your neighborhood? And if so, how do you feel about it?
