Merry Christmas, and don't be afraid to say it!

It is not "Happy frikin' Holidays" it is MERRY CHRISTMAS!
I went to my nail salon yesterday. When I opened the door the smell of incence from the Buddah shrine in the corner filled the air. Right in front of me was a huge Christmas tree filled with decorations. As I was leaving my lovely little Vietnamese couple wished me a Merry Christmas. Now this is an excellent lesson to all those "politically corrrect" jerks out there. My friends are happy to share my holiday and do not feel threatened. *Sheesh* I refuse to say Happy Holidays to the customers at the store. My Chinese co worker who is not a Christian would say Happy Holidays and I would say Merry Christmas. The customers would always respond to us with a big smile. The politicians could take a lesson!
My Mom is out of the hospital and at my brother's for the week. I went to see her on Friday before I went to work. Today Carl and I are off to visit overnight at my son's. This year I will get to see all my children and grandchildren within a week of Christmas. Pretty nice!

ROFL!!! I love that picture!! andit was nice to see you too.

I think this whole Merry HolidayKwanzaHannuakkaYule thingie has gotten way out of hand. I'm not Christian but if someone says Merry Christmas to me, I say it back. I don't get insulted or offended or anything else like that.

I think that everyone should take the greeting for what it is; A heartfelt blessing of happiness and health. Stop fussing over the words and listen to the meaning.
