Just make it official: no Christmas, only Holiday

Success - Article sent! close

I want to make a statement regarding Holiday, the day formerly known as Christmas. Because we live in a diverse nation where all cultures are celebrated and appreciated, it is fitting that the name Christmas be changed to be more inclusive and less divisive. Holiday does that quite well.

However, the old Christmas relics like trees decorated with lights, Santa Claus listening to children tell what they want, various imagery associated with it and those old classic songs about that day are still OK to use, but please, whatever you do, do not use the offensive word Christmas anymore.

This logic shall not apply to Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, because if someone was offended and did not want to suffer the insult of seeing a private business or public entity acknowledging those celebrations, it would literally mean the end of the world as we know it. Also keep in mind that all the money generated from Holiday is dependent on the celebration of that day on the 25th of December, no matter how offensive and politically incorrect it might be.
