Happy Holidays

by MW Cook

Ah, December, the season when Christians post snarky things to Facebook letting everyone know that they’ll be saying ‘Merry Christmas’ this month instead of Happy Holidays, thus ignoring Christmas Eve, St. Stephen’s Day, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s, Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe and Epiphany.

It’s not a war on Christmas, friends. It’s just the inconvenience of having a solstice for your culture’s favorite holiday.

It’s not a war on Christmas, friends.  And even if it was, it really doesn’t matter.  Or, at least it shouldn’t matter.  At least not to Christians.

One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. – Paul of Tarsus

It’s not a war on Christmas, friends.  Not with 77% of Canadians identifying as Christians.  Hard to play the persecuted card when only 23% of the people are the evil oppressors.

So whatever holidays you plan to celebrate this season, may they be happy and fill your with the warm joy of being alive and a part of this amazing brotherhood of humanity.

Peace on Earth.  Goodwill to all.
