But seriously, what’s wrong with a little old time Christmas celebrations that have harmed no one since the tradition first started centuries ago.
Today, in the name of political correctness everything seems to be going awry on this side of the pond regarding Christmas.
Now, people are being robbed of the joy and fantasy of Christmas that have served them well throughout the ages either by crass commercialization or political correctness.
So, the season started with Starbucks stripping its cups of the usual Christmas décor with the view of not offending non-Christians, needless to say, this created a hullabaloo in the media.
“Starbucks REMOVED CHRISTMAS from their cups because they hate Jesus,” declared Joshua Feuerstein in a Facebook post that went viral, generating nearly 10.5 million views.
The popular nativity scene that could be once seen everywhere as a symbol of the Christmas season has now for the most part disappeared from the public sphere.
In fact, many companies seem to be avoiding any religious aspect of the Christmas season like a plague.
One mall has even been reported to have ditched the Christmas tree in order not to offend anyone.
Moreover, today, people are even afraid to say “Merry Christmas” as the preferred term is “Happy Holidays.”
And it gets even more bizarre with the swapping of “Christmas” for “Xmas.”
Christmas caroling also now seems to be an event of the past and any concert held on school campuses and at public offices must avoid the name of Christ or Jesus or get called out and condemned for being insensitive.
In the words of Donald Trump, the leading Republican Presidential candidate, what the hell is happening?
We want our Christmas back where the story of joy, peace, and goodwill to all people was the central theme and focus.
Yes, let’s take back our Christmas where the family and community came together to share not only their love for each other, but also in the festive spirit of the season exchanged gifts, shared food, as well as had fun, and fellowship.
Let’s put back Christ in Christmas and the ‘oy’ in joy the season once had.
Merry Christmas to Y’all!
