I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I hope you ate well and got caught up on sleep because, conservatives, we have to get ready for the War On Christmas. Ever since the liberals took over everything from the White House to Hollywood, religious liberties have slowly been stripped away, and the pinnacle of this can be seen in the War On Christmas that has been taking over America since sometime shortly after Kennedy got elected. With the help of corporations and the liberal media, they have succeeded in getting this past. Well, it’s time for us to fight back and reclaim our “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays”. It will be a harsh fight, but I know that we can win it by sticking together against those heathens who would rather us say “Happy Holidays”.
Well, that’s how most conservative bloggers out there would characterize the “War On Christmas”, but I am different than them. I have friends of all religions including, but not limited to, atheists, those of the Jewish faith, pagans, and others. We all celebrate our holidays this month in our own individual ways, and no one has a problem with the other celebrating the holiday that belongs to their particular faith. As conservatives, we need to learn how to do this more. You know, live together in harmony with others. Yes, we can still have strong opinions, but we just can’t prevent them from trying to hush the opinions of others because, after all, freedom of speech is a basic principle of our country.
I say all this to say, what is all the hoopla about? I am not going to get offended if the sales clerk at my local store wishes me “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” mainly because I am strong in my faith, and them telling me “Happy Holidays” is not going to lessen my faith one iota. At the same time, I’m not going to say that those of us who are Christians shouldn’t say “Merry Christmas” at all because we should have that right just as others should have the right to wish anybody they want “Happy Hanukkah”, “Wonderful Solstice”, or anything else they wish because we all have freedom of speech and should be able to use it.
So imagine, a world where we could wish anybody a great holiday, regardless of their faith. Whether it be Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, or Solstice, we could wish everybody great luck and a good holiday, and we would all be okay with it. It would be a great world, and there would be no need for people to complain about a so-called “War On Christmas”. After all, with all the trouble going on throughout the world, one less war would be a great thing in my humble opinion.
May God Bless America,
The Generation X Conservative
And Happy Hanukkah to everyone out there!
