No matter how it is said, to me it all means the same thing: Worship your Higher Power, respect and enjoy life, and celebrate your family and friends.
So many people place emphases on what religion is being celebrated instead of just celebrating.
I will continue to say "Merry Christmas" and will show respect if you choose to say "Happy Hanukkah".
It's only because we are a free country that we are even able to have such diversity. So celebrate that.
If you have a roof over your head, food on the table, clothes to keep you warm and a family to love you, celebrate that. You have it so much better than many other people, too many. This is the season of giving so the next time you see someone bitching about a decoration or that not enough people show love to a certain religion, remind them that it could be so much worse.
Celebrate what you have but keep in mind that others are without. It's a good reminder of how great you have it. Then pass along that good feeling to others.
With all that said...
MERRY CHRISTMAS BEDFORD FALLS!
