On Friday a cashier at a store said “Happy Holidays” to me and I responded with “Merry Christmas to you too!” The cashier appeared upset that I used the ‘MC’ phrase.
The salutation of ‘Merry Christmas’ is thought to be taboo by many for fear that someone will be insulted by it if they are not a Christian. Do you know what that salutation means?
Christmas is the time of year that Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus the Christ.
It is a celebration of the Prince of PEACE.
It is a celebration acknowledging the Son of God was born to give us salvation.
It is a greeting of GOOD WILL.
It is a salutation to transmit HEALTH, HAPPINESS, and PROSPERITY.
If your undies get in a bunch every time someone wishes you a Merry Christmas, you must want tribulation, ill will, and strife. That has to be a terrible life!
So, I will wish you a Merry Christmas anyway and ask that you take it as a way for me to wish you a peaceful and harmonious season.
