    Sadly most public places can no longer call that to be "PC" and as to not offend anyone they have to say "happy holidays". Some stores no longer even play Chirstmis music out of fear or offending someone and the en-pending lawsuits that would follow. It's sad really what we have allowed our self's to become!

    The name CHRISTmas should indicate what it really is all about...

    If you choose not to celebrate it, that's your choice and you're free to make that choice. The 1st Amendment...

    Don't make it uncomfortable for the individuals who choose to celebrate it. If someone says "merry Christmas" and you don't agree or simply don't want to reciprocate, simply say nothing or perhaps say "bah humbug" and walk away. If a Nativity scene with the baby Christ in the manger bothers you, look away...

    Merry Christmas to all who believe...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Thumbs up It's a holiday celibrating the Roman Empire.

    Actually the reason for Christians celibrating the birth of Christ on December 25 has nothing to do with when Jesus Christ was supposedly born. There is conflicting historical evidence that Christ was either born in October or January, there is no evidence that Christ was born in the month of December. The reason for celibrating Christmas on December 25 is basically all marketing. Durring the time of the Roman Empire the holiday of Saternalia, the veneration of the emperor as the son of the gods, was celibrated on December 25. The folowers of the Mithradidic religion did not like their folowers celibrating this holiday so they invented a holiday to coincide with Saternalia, Mithra's birthday. The folowers of the Mithradidic religion declared that their divine champion was born on December 25 and that they would celebrate their holiday on that day so that the faithful would not be celebrating the state holiday of Saternalia. They coopted all of the Roman practices that went along with Saternalia.

    Durring the middle ages the Christian leaders became concerned with their faithful celibrating the birth holiday of a pagan champion, so they took a play out of the pagan playbook and coopted the holiday themselves. Decmeber 25 became a day to celibrate the birth of Christ, for no other reason than the Christian leaders wanted people to celibrate their avatar's birth instead of the champion of a pagan faithful people. The Christians used all of the pagan practices and traditions, hanging of the greens, the advent wreath, feasting with family, candle light celibrations, midnight worship, and gave them Christian meanings.

    So by celibrating Christmas on December 25, you are acknoledging one of two things,
    1- The Roman Empire was one of the greatest and most influencial civilizations ever, because that is where this holiday originates.
    2- This is a time for all religions and cultures to celibrate. An ecumenical holiday as it is a holiday that barrows from a variety of religious and cultural traditions.

    Merry Christmas to all. He is the reason for the season. By the way I doubt that there are any that do not know that Dec. 25th most likely is not the day Christ was born. It is the day we set aside to remember God's perfect gift.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    That is how it should be! But sadly it's not they feel they should not be subjected to it and that it violates their rights and believes. They have been winning the battle over the years and we just keep taking it. Look at the tv ads now Vs back in the in the 80's-90's most of the ads use to say marry christmas Vs now they say happy holidays(not all but most). Most big company's no longer have holiday party's and no longer do secret santa. As Bob Dylan said "Times they are a changing".

    THEY MAY TAKE OUR LIVES BUT THEY'LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM!!!!!

    I am simply acknowledging one thing; I believe in Christ... All the rest of this crap is meaningless to those who believe in Christ as the son of God..

    Does it bother you that you get a Friday or Monday off to make a three day week-end for Presidents day, or any number of holidays, even though it may not be the actual day? Easter is also celebrated on varying days. It's not about the exact day (which has long been lost in history) but simply remembering and celebrating the greatest gift in the world. You don't have to accept that belief but why try to ruin it for those who do?
