Christmas Has Become Too PC

Today I had a discussion with a gentleman on Christmas. Our discussion centered around how “political correctness” has taken away the joy of Christmas in the US. People are scared what to say during this time. They have to repress the urge to say “Merry Christmas” so as not to often anyone..especially co-workers. What does Happy Holiday mean. I could say Happy Holiday for the fourth of July or Martin Luther King day. A friend forwarded this email to me today…

To All My Democrat Friends:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great . Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

To My Republican Friends:
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
