Happy Non-Religious, Non-Denominational Universal Holiday to You and Yours!

Did you read the title? Didn’t quite have that “punch,” did it?

Once again we’re forced to sit through the Happy Holidays vs. Merry Christmas war. Yes, the whole politically-correct “Happy Holidays” thing gets on my nerves too, but what is anyone really going to do about it?

Here’s what will happen: millions of Christian Americans will forward Emails that ridicule companies that refuse to decorate their stores with the words “Merry Christmas.” The companies will ignore the attempted public outcry due to the fact that if they did put “Merry Christmas” in their stores or commercials, they’d face bad publicity as the ACLU and their ponies bombarded them with lawsuits and outraged interviews on MSNBC (which only seven people will be watching, but still).

Then they’ll have to kiss Al Sharpton’s rear end as an apology to the disenfranchised, who in this case would be atheists, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, and probably Scientologists (I’m not sure about that last one, but they’re pretty weird, so I just threw their name in there) (additionally, I am not calling the others weird), but who cares?

There will be a big fuss, and we Christians will feel slighted due to the fact that we make up, according to this study, roughly 76% of the population, but we still don’t see the word Christmas anywhere. I should add that atheists are also likely to celebrate Christmas, but their nativity scene in their front yards will look a little different. Joseph will be replaced with Santa, Mary will be replaced by a reindeer, and baby Jesus will be replaced by Friedrich Nietzsche.

As for me, I’m not going to make a big fuss about it anymore. Sure, they can take Merry Christmas out of Target, but they can’t take it out of my blog.

So MERRY CHRISTMAS, everybody!

Much love from Ryan and Shari. We hope you have a wonderful time with your friends and family. God bless!

    Well said. I actually respect people more when they say “Merry Christmas” as opposed to “Happy Holidays.”

    Oh, and I never got a chance to comment, but I thought your story about the cops nabbing you for photography was hilarious! That’s one that will be repeated for a few years, methinks. 🙂

  2. Just make sure you say Happy Holidays come Feburary….you know, just in case someone doesn’t believe in “love”, come the 14th.

    That’s the whole point: saying “Happy Holidays” is enough to cover an entire year.

    You hope my holidays are happy? Does this include Columbus Day? I don’t even remember when Columbus Day is.

    Are they excluding any holidays? That Labor Day, for instance…not including in the whole Happy Holidays that I wished you. I have a beef with Labor Day!
