It’s all right to say “Merry Christmas”. Yes, Christmas is still a Christian holiday that celebrates the birth of the savior, Jesus Christ. You should not be afraid to say that to your friends or acknowledge that in public. As a matter of fact, Christians are encouraged to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. If you’re not a Christian or you don’t believe in Jesus Christ as the savior, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that if you’ve lived anywhere in America in the last year or so, that you’ve heard of this fellow named Jesus Christ and that a lot of people believe that he is the son of God and that he was sent to this Earth to die for their sins. Kind of a neat concept, even if it does sound a little far-fetched to a non-believer. If you don’t believe this, you have the absolute right to say so. The great thing about this country is that there isn’t any punishment for you for not believing and there isn’t any punishment for the merry well-wisher either. We’re free to express our beliefs here. But Christmas isn’t about freedom. It’s about hope. Hope is good. We need hope. Hope for a better world. Hope for an end to hunger. Hope for peace.
We HOPE that you and your family have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and we HOPE that you have a HAPPY, HEALTHY & SUCCESSFUL NEW YEAR.
