Merry Holidays, or Happy Christmas?

There was a time when everyone said, Merry Christmas, and it was 'politically correct'. Now a days, we have changed it to 'Happy Holidays' to spare the smorgasbord of nationalities and religions that come from around the world.

Is it technology that has made us more aware of the differences, or is it that we are packed so tightly into our social communities that we have to compromise?

I, for one, don't mind. It's only when I trip over my words and start with Merry, ending up with Holidays, or perhaps Happy, then Christmas.

It's been ingrained in me for over fifty years. Please forgive me if I don't get it right. This old dog is learning.

Regardless of which way it's said, the sentiment is the same. Have a wonderful holiday week when friends and family come together in the spirit of love and friendship. There is nothing like it.

Be safe, don't drink and drive, and watch out for reindeer.
