It’s Christmas for a reason

Editor: It is called Christmas. It is the day we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Christ. It is meant to be a worship day! Why do so many Canadian organizations including many on P.E.I., CBC, unions, etc., find it so difficult to say Merry Christmas? It is what the day is called.

It is an insult to every Christian to not recognize the day we celebrate the birth of our Savior. Other so called holidays for example, Happy New Year. What if we just called it Happy Year? Or Hanukkah, what if we just said ‘Hanukkah’ instead of Happy Hunukka, or what if we just say just Happy. Would anyone know what we’re talking about?

It is very disrespectful to not wish Christians a Merry Christmas and call it just a holiday. If you can’t say Merry Christmas, or Happy Hanukkah, then you should say nothing at all. Otherwise you’re just insulting, not only Christians, but God. For people who are supposed to be “smart” and “respectful” we sure do look stupid and disrespectful.

Thus, far The Guardian has told all kinds of stories on how people celebrate Christmas, but no definition of Christmas, but only the promotion of those groups who don’t believe in Jesus, the Christ to begin with. What is happening?
