If you are intersted in making a statement as the frantic rush to the shopping epicenters of your fare burgh begins, may I recommend the American Family Association?

Although this is an unsolicited advertisement, I appreciate the sentiment noted on the sticker here.

ok-to-say-christmasSo, ACLU and God haters everywhere. You can keep your “Happy Holidays” and “Season’s Beatings” hype and hubbub. There is a singular reason you have this day, at least in America.

  • No, it’s because of the Norse god, Yule.
  • Sorry, it’s not because of the German god Oden with his “naughty or nice” list.
  • And those funny, toxic plants gift-wrapped to the States from a 19th century Mexican foreign minister named Poinsett.
  • Also, the Turkish patron saint of sailors, a Mr. Nicholas, has nothing to do with it.

This is a birthday party for Jesus Christ. Every country has its different means to celebrate, and quite honestly, has created this global HOLY-day as an amalgamation of each history, but when it comes down to it, this day is because men sought after the Christ child.

I’ll save the argument for commercialism for another day. Have fun shopping and grab a sticker, Saints.

P.S. For those who didn’t know the aforementioned examples of global Yuletide folklore, grab the DVR and find the greatness of the History Channel.

    Your are so right!

    It is Christmas on the Calendar so why not say Merry Christmas! It does not offend me when you say Happy Hanuka during that week, no more than if you say Happy 4th of July in USA. People are too sensitive.
