The Reason for the Season … 72% of Americans Prefer Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays

 

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.

 
 
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.’”

 To our Jewish readers … Happy Hanukkah

      JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON

      REDEEMING LOVE

      From God’s heaven to a manger,
      From great riches to the poor,
      Came the holy Son of God, a little child.
      From the azure halls of heaven,
      To a lowly manger stall,
      Jesus came and here He gave His life for all.

      Redeeming love, a love that knows no limit.
      Redeeming love, a love that never dies.
      My soul shall sing through-out the endless ages,
      With choirs exalting of this great love on high.

      From a loving heavenly Father,
      To a world that knew Him not,
      Came a man of sorrow, Jesus Christ, the Lord.
      In my wandering He found me,
      Touched my life with His great love,
      And this Babe has grown to be my sovereign Lord.

      Redeeming love, a love that knows no limit.
      Redeeming love, a love that never dies.
      My soul shall sing through-out the endless ages,
      With choirs exalting of this great love on high.

      Absolutely every store I enter, I say loud and clear Merry Christmas! And, one out of 3 clerks will meekly say, we can’t say that but I believe it! What a shame some liberal idiots can’t or choose not to use the saying.

      I also wear my Merry Christmas button and have laarge nativity scenes every home I live in.

      In The name of Jesus our Lord and Savior.
