Screw you and your political correctness

"Seasons Greetings." "Happy Holidays." "Winter Break."

Its hard not to notice the political correctness sneaking into the Christmas season. And for me, its hard not to be annoyed. I'd like to meet the people who are offended when someone says Merry Christmas to them. I really would. I'd also like to bop them in the nose, but that's another story.

I don't know about you but when I wish someone a Merry Christmas, there's no asterisk attached to it that states that, by saying the word Christmas, I am tossing something religious at you. I'm simply verbalizing my hope that on December 25th, you enjoy yourself. I don't care if its at church, Disneyland or dancing around a fire at a nudist colony.

When did we become so religiously sensitive that something as friendly as "Merry Christmas!" is bad? I have a Jewish friend who sent me a text saying "Happy Hanukkah" yesterday. I wasn't offended. I smiled and replied wishing her the same. Its a nice sentiment. Its friendly. It's not my religion. SO WHAT? Merry Christmas? Same to you! Happy Hanukkah? L'chaim! Happy Kwanzaa? Well thank you very much!

Its a Christmas tree. They're Christmas presents. They're Christmas carols. They're Christmas lights. So...

MERRY CHRISTMAS, INTERNET! (Yeah, watch me be politically incorrect)

I am completely with you. Coming from a Jewish/Christian/Atheist family, I find nothing wrong with any of it.

Merry Christmas.
