Poll: Do You Think There Is Anything “Wrong” With Saying Merry Christmas?

By  | 

Frohe Weihnachten!

Joyeux Noël!

Feliz Navidad!

Gleðileg Jól!

 

However you say it, Merry Christmas is a joyous seasonal seasonal greeting that is exchanged between people all over the globe at a certain time of year.

Yet in America, that greeting is often times taken offensive and inappropriate, leading to workplaces, universities, and Liberal think-tanks to come up with alternatives like, “Happy Holidays,” or, “Merry X-mas.”

Their thinking is that the term Merry Christmas is used as a celebration of the the day that Jesus Christ was born, and that to use such an expression would be a sort of indoctrination into the Christian faith.

This from the same political think-tanks that don’t have a problem with the Shahada, a Muslim expression of faith that says, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammad is the messenger of Allah,” from being memorized and recited by middle-school students during their history lessons on the religion of Islam.

Yet year after year, without fail, stories always emerge about somebody who is told that they cannot say Merry Christmas, or that they cannot have a Christmas Party out of fear of forced indoctrination or out of fear of offending someone who is not a member of the Christian faith.

Tell us what you think.

Is there anything wrong with saying “Merry Christmas” to one another?
