Reader: It’s still OK to say Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas; how long have I heard these two words or said them myself. Why do I say them? To offend someone? No Way.

First, I have the Christ of Christmas in my heart. He is as real as this morning’s sunrise. To think that, here in America, they don’t want anyone to say Merry Christmas or have a nativity scene displayed. Also, this year, the name Christmas Tree; They want to call it Holiday Tree. How ridiculous. Something is wrong in America. Has anyone else noticed how much America is changing?

I don’t know about anyone else; But, as for me and my house we will tell everyone that we meet, Merry Christmas and on each piece of mail we send we will have Merry Christmas written on the envelope.

How about it America? It’s about time that we speak up.

Merry Christmas!
