in this age of political correctedness....it is often a bit of a challenge to find the right words to celebrate. if you are not a Christian..have a merry Christmas may seen like a politically incorrect wish...
but how can wishing a merry day for anyone be not a good thing to do?
celebrations of any religion, any civic holiday, any birthday or thanksgiving days are just that..celebrations. we celebrate the lives of others, and ourselves too. we celebrate and are thankful for the unique gifts in all of our lives. and in celebrating with our families and communities we connect with others in a positive way too.
it is not the words that matter..it is the kind thoughts that count. nit picking at the proper way to say happy anything or writing the script for the rest of the world to frame how they can speak of celebrating happiness, good wishes, kind thoughts, is beyond ridiculous...it borders on being like scrooge.....bah humbug...insisting that everyone think, feel, say, believe that community celebrations must be politically correct or they have no community value.
Christmas is no longer just about Christians celebrating the birth of jesus..it is also now about non Christians celebrating families.
how in anyone's mind can this not be something good for any diverse society?
maybe it has become too commercial, maybe it has become too much about what we want and not being grateful for what we have...but if you take away all of the Christmas wrappings and just view as a day when people come together to share kindness and joy..it seems silly to dick around picking the exact politically right words.
I wish a merry Christmas and peace on earth for all living beings... independent of religons, independent of gender, color, race or species...a simple wish for all of us that inhabit and share this planet earth.
