I grew up saying Merry Christmas! And I meant it. Christmastime is a time to be merry and happy and to express love. Watch any Hallmark movie if you don’t believe me.
When I entered college a movement came about. The movement of not offending anyone. “Don’t say merry Christmas,” I was told. “Say happy holidays. That way you won’t offend anyone.” That made sense. I just wanted to express joy and happiness. Definitely not to spread hate and discontent so I started saying happy holidays. And I meant it. Be happy people!
