Yes, I said it… my non-denominational seasonal greeting to everyone. Yes… I know what the holiday is, but I choose to say “Happy Holidays”.
I think way too much is read into things. There is enough room in this world for everyone to have their own beliefs, or even NO beliefs, if people will just accept people for being another human being on this tiny planet and respect their choices. If someone gives you a “Merry Christmas”, or even a “Happy Holidays” or a (and hush my mouth) “Season’s Greetings” so what? Take it at face value… they are ONLY trying to pass good wishes your way more often than not.
I wish you all a safe and prosperous new year!
