Happy Holidays or Happy Christmas?
Lyjo asked the question, what is the politcally correct thing to say, Happy Holidays or Happy Christmas?
You can call an apple an orange but it will still be an apple and taste like an apple. Politically correct means saying things like Chairperson instead of Chairman. People say, to be politically correct, you should say American, Native American or African American. I disagree, I think you should say American, African American or European American.
Getting back to Christmas, it should still be called Christmas as that is what it is. It doesn't matter if some people say they are offended. I thought the US had freedom of speech. That not only means you may say what you like, it means you shouldn't be offended by what anyone else might say. Therefore if someone says they are offended, then they are not being a real American.
This also applies to the Ten Commandments in public buildings. They should be there. Not only Christians but also Jews and Muslims believe in the Old Testament and most countries have based their laws around the commandments.
I am not from the United States but what confuses me about them is; They can send their troops all over the World, to die for their beliefs, whilst at home their politicians are eroding them.
So, say happy Christmas, if you want to and be pleased to do it, no matter what anyone might think. While we are at it, what is this Spring Break? Is it Easter, or what?
