The idea of “Happy Holidays” being a forced and politically correct replacement for “Merry Christmas” is sad to those of us who were raised on Christmas spirit and who know a bit about history. It’s funny how it is okay to say “Happy Chanukah” and “Have a wonderful Kwanzaa” or “May your Ramadan be delightful!” — but if you say “Have yourself a merry little Christmas” you’re placing yourself in the middle of a political firestorm that doesn’t mind who gets burned in the process.
Happy, Happy Thanksgiving!
It has been my pleasure and honor to meet you, get to know you, and call you friend. Thank you!
