Xmas...ahem...Christmas

Post by 89whiteandnerdy on Thu Dec 13, 2007 6:28 pm

What is your opinion of the mutilation of Christmas in this country? It seems like everything about Christmas that actually has to do with Christ is being drowned out in the modern meaning of the holiday. Even the greeting has changed - from Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays.

I agree. And since I have extra time on my hands, I will reply to this one as well. Wink In the past couple of years it has been amazing how quickly companies, newspapers and our civil magistrate is trying to confuse what holiday we are actually celebrating. How many people have you met that celebrate Kwanza or Hannukah? How about Christmas?

And to quote from Brad Stine, why do they only say Happy Holidays for Christmas? I mean, the other holidays are holidays too, but people would look at you as if you were nuts if you said Happy Holidays for July 4th or something...It seems a purposeful substitution.

Well, to me, I see holiday as holy day. Easter and Christmas are holidays to me. I may say "Happy Holiday" rather than holidays, but I will probably just say "Merry Christmas" and urge everyone to say "Merry Christmas" whenever possible. If Christmas dies, its our own faults. Rise up oh men (and women) of God!

CHRISTMAS RESOLUTION
Yesterday the House voted on a resolution to recognize the importance of Christmas and Christianity in America. Alright Boortz ... big deal. Well I just thought I would point out a bit of hypocrisy.
There were nine Democrats that voted against the Christmas/Christianity resolution. Those representatives were: Rep. Gary Ackerman (N.Y.), Rep. Yvette Clarke (N.Y.), Rep. Diane DeGette (Colo.), Rep. Alcee Hastings (Fla.), Rep. Barbara Lee (Calif.), Rep. Jim McDermott (Wash.), Rep. Robert Scott (Va.), Rep. Pete Stark (Calif.) and Rep. Lynn Woolsey (Calif.).
Now with one exception (Rep. Lee) all of these Democrats voted in favor of the October House resolution to honor Ramadan, a Muslim religious observance day.
Those of you who are surprised by this hypocrisy line up for your spankings now.

I have no problem people saying Happy Holidays, or Seasons Greetings. After all, we have Christmas and New Years. People get school off too, that's called a holiday. So it's perfectly legitimate to call it happy holidays. However! It is ridiculous to replace that with Christmas. Mostly because, what holiday are you buying those happy holiday gifts for? Ask anyone, it's Christmas. People have said Happy Holidays since before my parents were born, it's not a new thing. So I don't mind saying that, so long as it's not because they are replacing anything.

Oh, and on another related note. I read recently on CNN's website that three jews were attacked on a subway because some atheistic americans got offended when they said, "Happy Hannukah." A muslim, however, stood up for them and helped defend them. Ironic, huh? And stupid. I mean, why would you start a fist fight just because someone said Happy Hannukah. If they had cursed and swore the atheists wouldn't have grown angry, so why when they said the name of a legitimate jewish holiday? Dis worlz gone crayzee...

isn't Christmas supposed to be a holy day celebrating the birth of Christ? i know this is maybe not the day he was born on, but still. also, where I'm at, people have started to call it winter fest, instead of Christmas. true there is also a winter fest, but not in the place of Christmas....also, has anyone else noticed how commercialized it is. most companies no longer see it as a holy day, but rather a marketing opportunity......i agree with Wylff....this world is insane.
