I noticed that some news commentators like to make an issue of whether or not some people say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays or nothing at all. I saw a Naughty/Nice list of retailers on the O’Reilly Factor (Fox News) recently and it gave me reason to pause and think about it for a few minutes. The list referred to those who frown on their employees saying “Merry Christmas” and those who allow and sometimes encourage it. I really prefer to say “Merry Christmas” and have never been chastised by anyone for wishing them one.
As a Christian, Jesus is truly the reason for the season. I confess that I can be caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season and forget the focal point from time to time: Jesus.
So, where is this all leading? It is not a hill I wish to die on, so to speak. But I leave you with this heart-felt wish: Merry Christmas.
