Remember, the reason for the season …
With the Christmas season upon us, most Americans prefer “Merry Christmas” over using the term “Happy Holidays”. In a recent Rasmussen poll, 72% of Americans prefer Merry Christmas while only 22% like Happy Holidays. Like many things we witness recently, the nonsense PC world are failing us and falling fast as people are realizing the dangers of a PC world. It is the reason for the season and why would anyone be offended by saying Merry Christmas. After all, it is about Peace on Earth and goodwill toward man. It is about tolerance and I would ask, who is being intolerant? Is it possible that the secularists are beginning to lose the War on Christmas.
Perhaps inevitably as with much of what is polled by Rasmussen Reports, there is a partisan difference on the question. Ninety-one percent (91%) of Republicans and 70% of adults not affiliated with either major political party like store signs that wish them a “Merry Christmas,” compared to just 58% of Democrats.
Last year, 68% of all adults wanted holiday signs to read “Merry Christmas,” while 25% preferred “Happy Holidays.”
It would appear that the preference for saying Merry Christmas is on the rise, up 4% from last year. What is puzzling is why so few Democrats have an issue saying Merry Christmas. What is the problem with saying Merry Christmas during what is the Christmas season? Would they say Happy Holidays during Easter as well? Why would Democrats prefer using a PC phrase like Happy Holidays which means pretty much nothing.
So to all Merry Christmas … Remember the reason for the season and what Christmas is all about.
To our Jewish readers … Happy Hanukkah
