Merry Christmas to all! Once again this sacred holiday is under attack with the PC police frowning on the use of the phrase " Merry Christmas" in favor of the vapid, unreligious, and ludicrous "Happy Holidays". Christmas is a sacred Christian holiday, and America is primarily a Christian country born out of the Judeo - Christian tradition. It is a festive time, as well as a time of peace and good will and the last time I checked, it's something we could all use a little more of in this world. Furthermore, Christmas is a federal holiday and all government offices are closed. There is also a secular aspect to Christmas that everyone, not just Christians enjoy.
It is ridiculous and idiotic to claim that the word "Christmas" and the phrase "Merry Christmas" are somehow divisive. Why anyone would be offended is beyond me. It is simpy an attack on religion, specifically Christianity which is the favorite whipping boy of the liberals because of its strong moral stance and acknowledgment of good and evil.
The other major religious holiday that occurs around Christmastime is Hannukah. To those that celebrate Hannukah, I cheerfully wish a Happy Hannukah, the fact that I am Christian is immaterial. When I see a Menorah, I don't feel that Jews are trying to make me feel like an outsider, nor do I feel that they are intolerant. I simply honor their right to celebrate this great holiday which is part of the great Jewish religious tradition.The same holds true for any other religious group in America. It's called freedom of religion.
So let's let the liberals and their friends in the dinosaur media that carry their water, know that the war on Christmas is on and that it is inevitable that Christmas is and will be victorious. Let's begin by wishing a hearty "Merry Christmas" to all those we encounter. By the way kidos to Bill O'Reilly for taking center stage in this fight. On this issue, he's displayed a lot of guts and deserves our hearty congratulations.
Presently, as we are now past the 2008 election cycle this blog will morph into one espousing Conservative principles and preserving the great American traditions. This month obviously will be dedicated to the traditions of Christmas, and I would invite all to share their favorite Christmas traditions over the next few weeks. I will share mine as well.
For now be of good cheer, pray for our troops and be thankful for living in the greatest country in the history of the world. Merry Christmas!
