Gimme Back my Christmas!!!
Who's bright idea was it to tell their employees to not say Merry Christmas to their customers? Tell me, who buys Christmas presents at Christmas time? DUH! PEOPLE CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS!! I also know that people celebrating Hanukkah buy presents at this time too. But I don't think that was in the minds of the store owners when they made this decision. What they are though is spineless scared people of the PC police! Oh we can't offend this one, can't offend that one. Unless you are a Christian, then it is okay! You cannot go down this road of trying to please everyone! This world is not fair. It will never be fair. So quit trying to make it so!! Do you really think that by saying Merry Christmas that the MINORITY in this country will no longer shop in your store!! Come on, give me a break!! This country use to be a country of no Whiners. Now it seems that is all we have! *whiney voice* I don't celebrate Christmas so I was offended when that clerk told me Merry Christmas. *whiney voice off* We hear things everyday that we think offend us. Suck it up will ya!! My goodness. Like my kid sister says, "Cry me a river, build a bridge and get over it!" Stop being so sensitive! This country has a long standing tradition, that the MAJORITY supports, of celebrating Christmas in December and all that comes with that. Whew, I feel better anyways!
On a side note, I saw a statistic that said Christmas Decorations are a 7.9 Billion dollar industry!! Wow! I think I am in the wrong business!
