Fox News? Just curious because they seem to be on a kick lately, but then again it  is the main story this time of year: war on Christmas. Makes me do a full eye roll and change the channel.

 No, someone wrote a letter to the editor of our local paper angry that the high school's annual Christmas program included "Christian songs."  She was complaining that her tax dollars shouldn't be used for this. 

I, personally, think she is an idiot and if she doesn't like it, then don't attend the concert that has happened every year for the last 70 years.  Good grief.

Honestly why would people get offended ?? I'm Muslim and yes so are my boys they go to school and of course talk about Christmas and draw pictures , sing songs ect . And I don't get offended what so ever !!! Oh matter of fact we are going to have a Christmas party this weekend at my oldest school ;-) !! My boys know we don't celebrate it but it does not mean I will let them not attand school activies that has to do with Christmas .. And when people tell me marry Christmas I say it right back with a happy new year ;-) lol people are honestly so uptight about holidays .. When it was our holiday ( the eid) my boys brought gifts for there class and the teacher talked about and loved it !!!

 As a general rule I say Merry Christmas, but I know I've said Happy Holidays and if someone says it to me, big freakin' deal.

 Both sides get on my nerves. lol The way I see it is that I don't care how Joe down the street celebrates this time of the year because it has ZERO effect on me. I say Happy Holidays AND Merry Christmas. And if I see someone who celebrates it, I will say Happy Hannukah and Happy Kwanzaa. Basically it is just about respect. Live and let live. I don't care what a person celebrates and how they say or do it, but I sure hope they have an awesome time at it. :)
