Merry Christmas?! kaaashplfffffttts!!!

Without fail, the news will always say something this time of year about political correctness and wishing people “Merry Christmas” or whether or not people are choosing other seasonal greetings. I always get annoyed by this topic.

I’m going to make an awesome old man when I become senile.

Yesterday, I went to Safeway to pick up some thyme. The cashier wished me “Merry Christmas.” I went to get some roast chicken from Save-On-Foods. The deli guy wished me “Merry Christmas.” At work I’ve been wishing customers Merry Christmas left and right and many times they even beat me to it before going out the door.

The day on the calendar is marked “Christmas.” It’s not that hard to understand, even if you don’t celebrate it. You’ll get the day off anyways even if you wrote “Festivus” on your own calendar.

One on one, I don’t think most people care about political correctness, unless perhaps one individual is representing some sort of corporate or government image. En masse, the motto is assumed to be “It’s better to be safe than sorry,” and “Happy Holidays” is the norm.

I loathe that phrase.
I really like Michael Bublé’s Christmas album.

Before running away and looking at cat videos on YouTube, you should read this article entitled “Arrival of One which is Awaited” by Andrea York. God reveals Himself to her and she writes out really encouraging things. You should subscribe to her feed.

And in the words of Jim Carrey, I hope you have a CHRISTY CHRISTY CHRISTmas!

Sir, I too watch videos of cats on YouTube. However, I recently adopted a dog so now I have switched my viewing of animals via YouTube to dogs. I also sent out Christmas cards depicting my dog in a Santa hat. I don't particularly like sending Christmas cards and I can't say that I have ever sent cards before. But I really wanted to impose on others. I really wanted to hear how cute my dog is. Life's little affirmations, you know. That's what Christmas is really all about, isn't it? Anyway, Merry Christmas, buddy! Glad I could make you laugh today. Good to be back in the blogosphere!
