To bring some new light to the holiday I suppose I should write something about Christmas . I am re-engineering the acronym “PC “ to--Prefer Christmas. Correctness be hanged.
I am well aware of the true meaning of Christmas. That alone is reason enough for me to celebrate. I imagine you are aware of the foundation of Christmas as well, but perhaps you celebrate something else. That’s fine. Yes, Santa Claus, reindeer, trees, elves and imbibing eggnog, et al, have all crowded the holiday scene.
Over the past hundred plus years, Christmas took on an increasing role of a secular holiday in addition to a holy day. Secular Christmas fills the lives (and certainly the cash registers) of believers and non-believers alike. Is that a bad thing? Heck no. Christmas pumps joy into the soul and spreads cheer equally among all.
Some who don’t PC should consider all of the good that the holiday brings. Those who argue that Christmas must not be celebrated everywhere, as a separation of state and all that is holiday-ish, must ask themselves… why are the post offices and government building all closed on December 25th? If the government recognizes Christmas (it has been a federal holiday since 1870) in such a grand fashion, who are we to argue!
No matter what you believe, Christmas is wherever you are. Christmas floats freely in the air, it lives in every country and it snuggles up to you in bed. It strolls on city sidewalks in holiday style and lies where the snow is deep and crisp and even. It's on the moon. Christmas hides in the quiet and noisy places and it’s always right beside you. Christmas is holly jolly. It’s up to you to stand close enough to it to feel its warmth. Even the Grinch, who had a heart “two sizes too small”, was touched by what Christmas does to people. It made his heart grow three sizes larger.
|I PC, do you PC?|
No matter where you are, or where your heart is, allow me say this to you at least once... Merry Christmas!
