Merry Christmas

    Granted we just got finished with Thanksgiving, however I just got an e-mail from my ex-Father-in-law about the meaning of the phrase Merry Christmas and I concur.
   We as a nation have seem to become sooooo politically correct that we go into stores to shop for the holiday season and no one says Merry Christmas any more have ya NOTICED? This is because corporate does not want to offend anyone who will spend money in their stores. Do ya get it? Oh yea Happy Holiday they say now and Happy New Year if you are lucky enough to get that from the shop keeper or sales person.
I don't know about you, however I am offended by the political correctness of it all.
    I grew up with Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and in school we got Christmas vacation but not today my son gets a winter break and that does not even cover the fact that the teachers are not allowed to have Christmas trees in their classrooms any more yet they can have Menorahs and Quanza candles. Do you see the problem here? Personally I do.I don't  mind my son learning other religons or their Holiday traditions I think its great, however lets not forget about Christmas and its meaning of family,good wishes and most of all the big guy Santa. O.k we can't forget the little guy in the cradle either. 
   However you spend your Christmas holiday remember to have love,laugher and joy and the Christmas spirit of giving.

  1. More of a Yule woman meself... but ye know it well. However; your memories of Christmas and what the Christmas season means is well taken.

    Hey! Remember the first boat parade? Remember, in later years, how drunk the Lighthouse Point Police would get onboard? How did those guys ever get home?...their wives were just as sloshed! LMAO!
    Christmas should be Merry Meet. Merry Good Cheer. Peace on Earth, good will towards all.

    Yes, Deb, it has become commercial. Crass. I remember the goodness and excitement, still. Thanks for keeping it going... for me. Merry Christmas sweetie! Nice post!
