Oh, it has begun.  People, Christian people, taking issue with the politically correct people who say that we should say "Happy Holidays" or "Season's Greetings" instead of "Merry Christmas".  You see, the politically correct people don't want to offend anyone.

This has been a debate for years but, just a few years ago, a poll showed over 90% of us in western Canada preferred to say "Merry Christmas" over "Happy Holidays".

Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, there is something special about this time of year.  That same poll found MANY non-Christians participate in Christmas-like activities like spending time with family and friends and giving back to their communities.

I had a young lady ask me the other day if I celebrate Christmas.  I told her I did and I explained how.  When I asked her about her beliefs she told me she belongs to the Hindu religion and they don't really recognize Christmas as a religious tradition BUT, she said, "I celebrate it because I like people and parties."

I don't know about you, but that's the kind of political correctness I like.
