Last night there was a Chanukkah celebration in town with the lighting of the candles, songs & dancing. I didn't ask the people around me enjoying the festivities if they were Jewish or Christian, and nobody asked me to show an ID when I began to clap to the music or nosh on a latke.
Treating people with respect & kindness is important, but political correctness should never take away our ability to spread love & cheer.
It's Christmas in America and around the world, a time to reflect on our past and look foward to the coming year. If you want to live in a world where people don't kill one another, there is a meal on every table and a toy for every child, then we all want the same thing.
So it really doesn't offend me at all if people in stores wish me a Merry Christmas..as long as they mean it!
Peace & Love to Everyone!
