Last night on my way home, I was listening to the radio and heard a commercial wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. This commercial had started with the fact that companies are not saying 'Merry Christmas' anymore.
That got me thinking: Why not???
It should never be 'politically incorrect' to wish happiness for someone. Whether you are Christian or not, a happy wish is a good thing! Respecting someone else's beliefs doesn't mean that I have to hide mine. I will graciously accept a good wish in any language and about any religion.
So, at this time of year, if I happen to run into you, I will wish you a Merry Christmas. You can say Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, or Cheers to Beers back to me, but I do wish all of you a Safe and Merry Christmas and May all of your dreams come true in 2010!
