Happy Holidays!

Continuing a theme from a previous post, here’s a nice blog post from a Christian woman:

‘Happy Holidays’ and other four letter words

She decides not to be offended when a well-meaning store clerk wishes her “Happy Holidays”.

nothing anyone else says can take away MY meaning of the holiday. Nothing anyone else says will change what I believe. Nothing anyone else says will damage my own personal walk as a Christian. “Happy Holiday” wishers are not – as so many believe – “taking the Christ out of Christmas.” The only one who can take my Christ out of my Christmas is me.

Well said.

  1. Chris, thank you. I am a Christian who uses the term all the time. It’s not in nomenclature, it’s in intended meaning, that one finds good will or misuse.

    • Amber,

      Being on the front lines of retail, I catch it from both sides:

      1) for being presumptuous for wishing a “Merry Christmas”, and
      2) for being part of the evil heathen conspiracy to destroy Christmas.
