Annual "holiday" rant

Dear Jewish and Kwanzaa-celebrating Amigos,

Would you mind singling yourselves out so I know if I should say, "Happy Hanukkah" or "Happy Kwanzaa" to you? See, the thing is I refuse to say, "Happy Holidays." It's far too generic and I believe it negates the truth behind our various December celebrations.

Thank you. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa to you. (And if you don't celebrate ANY of those things - you shouldn't get one single gift this year. You can't pick and choose what parts of the holiday you believe in.)

With warm regards,
The Grinch (aka Ky)

  1. Oh, how I love a good holiday rant!!


    Last year I tried to be politically correct and only said Happy Holidays to people - it sucked. It didn't feel right.

    Here is my thought. I celebrate Christmas and I will say Merry Christmas to everyone because that is what I believe in. I respect others holidays, but as someone who does not practice them I feel no obligation to have to be politically correct by not recognizing what I celebrate. Now if you are a friend of mine and tell me you don't celebrate Christmas, then I will not say Merry Christmas and in that case I may say happy holidays or whatever you suggest. But I am over being PC to the masses, it is stupid.
