Can you say Merry Christmas?

Can you say Merry Christmas?

Have you noticed as you are out and about down town, no one will say Merry Christmas anymore? Its " Happy Holidays" or if you say it to someone they just say '' you too' or just smile and will not respond at all. I purposely said Merry Christmas to many strangers just to see how many would say the same but only about 4 people have responded saying Merry Christmas. Unbelievable! But they sure want you to do your Christmas shopping there and will take your money ( saying thank you for shopping here!)

Dont let anyone take away your right to freedom of speech.

They don't want you to say it because they know who it represents whether they deny it or not. If they didn’t there wouldn’t be such a fuss about it. they do not want to say "Christ". Christ means “anointed”. Jesus is the Christ, the anointed one , the Messiah who came to save the world from their sins if they repent and recieve Him into their life..

    At this time of year ...

    If someone smiles, makes eye contact with me, and says something (anything) pleasant ... I'm fine with that.

    Merry Christmas to You!

    I so agree with you. I say Merry Christmas, I respond with Merry Christmas when I hear happy holidays. My Christmas cards say Merry Christmas. There is a reason.. Jesus is the reason!
    I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a blessed new year ahead.

    I am so thrilled to see that our new President-elect says we can say Merry Christmas now and he says God bless you!... Refreshing!
    ( And I am told it has to do with the church versus state laws)... But in the medical clinic I used to work my supervisor told me to NOT to say "Merry Christmas" to people that instead to say happy holidays...... I just looked at her thinking .....Really?.... I was brought up believing in Jesus and the Christmas is celebrated because he came to earth for us giving us life and I am not about to undo my beliefs and apologize to make somebody else happy!!...... To me New Year's is a holiday Christmas is a Spiritual occasion..... On that note Merry Christmas and God bless you Glory!.. emoticon
