Merry Christmas, Crofton!

Merry ChristmasI’m so glad I grew up in an era when people said “Merry Christmas” to each other.  No one even thought of apologizing for it.  A school Christmas pageant was all about celebrating the birth of Baby Jesus.  Christmas cards showed the Nativity scene, angels, or Santa… and said “Merry Christmas!”

Call me old-fashioned, but I won’t buy or send Christmas cards that just say “Happy Holidays!” and I boycott stores that boycott Christmas.  If someone celebrates a different holiday and extends their traditional greeting to me, I’m flattered – not offended.   If someone doesn’t believe and says nothing, I’m okay with that, too.

In a country that was founded on religious freedom, why aren’t different religions celebrated any more?  Who declared that “sameness” is politically correct?  When did freedom FROM religion replace freedom OF religion?

Fortunately, I DID grow up in an era when people said “Merry Christmas” – and that’s my wish for you now.
