I have been hearing a lot of talk lately about how people aren’t allowing anyone to celebrate Christmas. The thing is, I’m only hearing about it from the Christians. I’m not hearing anyone saying they are offended by Christianity or Christmas itself. I’m very confused here. I mean seriously help me out, who is saying it is offensive?
I feel like if people don’t want to celebrate Christmas, then don’t celebrate it. If you want to call it something else, then call it something else but Christmas is a Christian holiday so just deal with it.
If you are Jewish, you have Hanukkah. If you are Atheists then you probably celebrate it for the tree, presents, Santa and a reason to get together with your family. I should know because I am atheist, I don’t knock the holiday because I know it is a Christian holiday. I celebrate it because I have always celebrated it since I was a kid and I don’t see why there is any reason to stop.
I just don’t understand why people are making such a huge deal about people being offended when I haven’t actually seen or heard anyone being offended over the words “Merry Christmas.” I mean really people, quit bitching about everything and celebrate your holiday the way you want to celebrate it and get over it.
