Holiday comes from holy day
To the Editor,
Re: Only greeting is ‘Christmas’, Letters, Dec. 25.
Bravo Diane Walker for sticking to her guns regarding the ‘merry Christmas’ greeting.
I agree that ‘happy holidays’ isn’t the same as ‘merry Christmas’, however holiday comes from holy day. Do people not saying ‘merry Christmas’ realize what they are saying instead?
People have the freedom to believe in Jesus, or not. They have a choice to celebrate Christmas with Him as the focus, or not.
They also have a choice to not accept Christmas as a paid statutory holiday, or if they work through it, refuse a higher pay rate because it is a stat.
They also need not bother with accepting Christmas bonuses. To do anything else would be hypocritical.
As for me and my house, we shall worship the Lord.
