Can we not keep Christ in Christmas?

In a letter to the editor of the Daily Herald on Dec. 8, Steve Howard expresses the sentiment that "whatever you do, do not use the offensive word Christmas anymore." Has it become offensive in this free land of religious liberty to keep Christ in our Christmas celebration? Can we still tolerate this basic free speech?

On the other hand, we also give people the right to have a non-Christian holiday. Call it whatever is desired. How about Pagan Holiday? For the sake of diversity, have one day set apart for pagans or non-Christians. That would give true and open diversity.
