This is so not directed at anyone on here, but the cranks (on both sides of the issue) who are keeping the "War On Christmas" bullshit alive. Just want to get this off my chest without being officially kicked out of that side of the family...

Some of my dad's family keeps making pointed posts about how they're going to keep saying "CHRISTMAS" thank you very much. Here's a post from my second cousin's FB wall: Just so everyone knows, I have a CHRISTMAS TREE in my living room (not a holiday tree), my kids are getting CHRISTMAS PRESENTS (not holiday gifts) and we will eat CHRISTMAS DINNER (not a holiday meal), and I will attend a CHRISTMAS PARTY (not a holiday party). I will also very cheerfully wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS! (not... happy holidays). By the way, if you want to have a Happy Hanukah , by all means do, I respect that. If you want to have a Blessed Kwanzaa, I also respect that. I want to have a Merry Christmas, so I ask YOU to respect that! Repost if you agree

Like they're saying, "How dare you try to make me acknowledge Others? I am not Other, so I don't have to say Other!"

And the worst of all, the "I respect that". As if everyone else needs your fucking blessing to worship the way they will or won't? ARRGH!

And to what is essentially "my side": not being able to say Christmas, (as I guess some schools are doing? I hope that's wrong, please tell me it's wrong) is just as stupid. And worse, you're making the cranks who think "Happy Holidays" is a WAR ON CHRISTMAS OMG right! So please stop that, thanks.

Happy Holidays is supposed to be inclusive, and whatever the hell you celebrate, I wish it to be happy.

I kind of wish I could just say "Fuck You!" instead of anything (to those people) at this point. I'd get to be sincere and they'd get to be outraged for a real reason...

To those people who are not getting all up in arms about "Happy Holidays", I wish you a Merry Christmas, a Blessed Yule, Bright Solstice, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and/or Happy Non-Denominational Winter Festivities Day.

...see how much faster it is to just say "Happy Holidays"?
