It's okay to wish me a Merry Christmas!

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!

 

Shalom,

Nancy

Good Yontiff to you too! May your candles burn brightly!

or as we say Merry Christmas to the Pope, "Good Yontiff, Pontiff"   :-)

Oh BTW - Happy Chanukkah is also nice! :-)   It's an important holiday too.
I was only saying things are getting so silly. I read that some people in Boston want to call the tree a "Holiday Tree." Most of us know that much of our Christmas tradition like the tree isn't biblical at all, even the date. There is nothing in the Bible about celebrating Christmas. But singing Christmas songs and enjoying the lights, the cheer and people wishing one another Merry Christmas is a cherished tradition and brings back fond memories. My best friend always invited me over to decorate the tree when I was a child. I'd sleep over on Christmas Eve and in the morning there would be a big candy bar or some fudge wrapped in pretty paper with my name on it.
