I am so sick of people going around saying "If someone says 'Happy Holidays' to you, respond with 'Merry Christmas' because this time of the year is about Jesus Christ"!
Well guess what people, other religions, that don't believe in JC, have religious holidays during the same season... they are called Hanukkah and Kwanzaa (and probably others that I dont know the name of )! I don't understand why people get in such a tizzy about these things. Yes, it's great that the Christian faith believes that JC was born on December 25th, and we celebrate that by putting up large, decorated trees, buying tons of gifts and stuffing our faces till we cant breathe.... but really, to act like there is nothing else that can happen during this time of year is a little ignorant in my book. I mean, celebrate your holiday, but let others celebrate theirs as well! It really does drive me insane. Who cares if someone says "Happy Holidays"?... maybe they are also referring to the fact that New Years is in the same time of year.
And really, dont you think that America has gone a little overboard with Christmas? I mean, any more, it has become a holiday to get the best deals on material items, that are probably not even needed in the first place. Shopping malls and stores start decorating in October for crying out loud! It's all a bit over-saturated and ridiculous. Especially when these same people who get up at 6 am the day after Thanksgiving, trying to claim "It's all about JC's birth!".. Bologna people!!!
I'm over it..
Just a little rant.
