Merry ChristMass!

This is a Christmas Tree from last December on FunnyMail has attracted hits, pingbacks and criticism the past few weeks with a few brave enough to send their scathes privately. It’s still a Christmas Tree! It isn’t a Hanukkah bush, Holiday  Tree, Allah Plant, or whatever else you may think to call it, to avoid calling it what it is: It’s a Christmas Tree!

My friends, a curious assortment of religions (Buddhists, Hindu, Hawaiian, etc.), and non-religions (atheist, admit-to-nothing), with pollitical differences, celebrate Christmas as an American tradition. The faiths vary, the beliefs and disbeliefs sometimes profoundly different. Yet Americans choose to celebrate Christmas. It isn’t as old a tradition as practicing Christianity, as depicted in Capitol murals. We are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights which include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Americans pursue happiness in the festivities of Christmas. And find it in the Son, born of Jewish parents, the one who Wise Men still seek. And in the quiet calm of their religions.

Atheists, Buddhists, Hawaiians and Admit-To-Nothings spend whatever’s left over from taxes to wrap gifts, indulge in merriment, imbibe in egg nog, and deck their halls with holly while the Christmas tree gets adorned with o′jects created by sticky little hands. We celebrate Christmas.

I’m so tired of hearing, “Happy Holidays!” Which “holidays” are to be happy? “Holiday Season,” meaning Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and the New Year? (I’m older than Kwanzaa.) Or  New Year, Valentine’s Day, the White Sale, and 4th of July? What are December’s Holidays (Holy Days), besides Christmas and Hanukkah?

So I say to you not “Happy Holidays”, which is rather benign, but rather

Merry Hanukkah, Happy ChristMass and Joyous New Year!

    Well said Linda, but you left out the part that the ACLU and Muslims refusing to assimilate and wanting us to fold to heir joke of a religion. Go back where you came from and take the ACLU with you. J.C.

    Well, dang!
    I was thinking more generally, specifically the abberrant religion of Politically Correct. ‘Tis that which spreads the deformity of definitions of simple words (i.e. Christmas) to meaningless jabber that pleases anyone who swallows without examining just what he’s being fed! As far as ACLU and (militant) Muslims (& others) who refuse to assimilate: they are but symptoms as obnoxious as “Happy Holidays”.
    Merry Hanukkah, Happy Christmas & Joyous New Year!
