What to say when
“Happy Thanksgiving” or “Happy Holidays” and on specific days, “Merry Christmas” and “Happy New Year.”
Hopefully you follow the pattern. This is not meant to be judgmental or disparaging, but hopefully inspiring.
I hope that from Thanksgiving through Christmas, assigned by man as the day of Jesus Christ's birth, and then until Dec. 31 and New Year's Day, all people will say, “Happy Holidays,” and say “Merry Christmas” on Dec. 25 and “Happy New Year” on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.
It is presumed that people call others “crazy liberals” or “unbelievers” because they are up in arms that people, from Thanksgiving to Dec. 31, are saying “Merry Christmas” to them. No one is up in arms.
It is presumed that no one actually does not believe that Jesus Christ is the lord and savior of all mankind, whether or not he or she believes in the God of the Scriptures. The people being called “crazy liberals” or “unbelievers,” it is presumed, do not believe in God.
It is just that so many people continually saying “Merry Christmas” to them is most likely agitating them because Jesus is being born and/or reborn in people's hearts daily.
Also, we should say “Happy Thanksgiving” whenever possible, because our nation is so blessed and prosperous that we, the native and immigrant included, actually put aside a day to give thanks to God, or whatever higher being one believes in, for his kindness.
