No More Merry Christmas

To the editor:

I am happily living my life as a non-politically correct person and instead try to employ what I feel is just some common sense and consideration for others. I celebrate my political-incorrectness even more now that the powers that be are trying to manipulate me into not celebrating my Christmas season the way I believe it and enjoy it - I see no harm done by it. Sometimes it seems we are expected to live like robots without uttering true feelings one way or the other about anything lest some overly-sensitive feathers are ruffled.

I am at a loss to understand the reasoning behind the plan to scrap the wishing of others "Merry Christmas" lest we offend someone who doesn't celebrate that particular belief. Why on earth should anyone feel offended to hear greetings of another's culture or celebration if only good wishes are intended? What harm in a heartfelt greeting of good wishes, i.e "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Hanukkah" or whatever the celebration? Isn't good will towards all what we should be striving for? If, for example, If I were to call a business, or someone's home, and someone answered the phone with the greeting Happy Hanukkah, I would just say a kindly Happy Hannukah right back to them in the spirit of friendliness - I certainly wouldn't be offended - just because I am not Jewish does not mean I can't return the greeting happily and wish that person the best of their holiday.

I hope someone else will chime in here with their thoughts on the matter -

I don't think I am alone with this train of thought, so to all who celebrate Christmas and any others who don't but wish to accept my greeting as a gesture of hope for the future and warm regards....

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY HAPPY 2005!

D.E.
