Yep, that’s what I was told the other night. I was there for an eye appointment and we were all talking about “holiday” parties, the good old days and what use to be. One of the workers remarked that there store took down all the Christmas trees because a costumer complained. Come on, give me a break! It is Christmas time, it is a national holiday, and for most Americans it is a Holy Day! You don’t like it, to bad! Shop elsewhere…
I just didn’t know what to say to them, how to respond except with a look of disbelief. Are we really in a time and place were one person dislike of a Christmas tree can dictate to a major corporation? Is Wal-Mart really that scared of loosing that one person? Or even if its 1000 people, Come on!
This world of political correctness has made us all stupider than before; we live in fear of what others may think. It is sickening and I for one am sick and tired of it. For Gods sake, it is Christmas shopping we are doing, not holiday shopping, so wish me a Merry Christmas. If I’m not Christian, than why should it bother me so much? I just don’t get it, if I am willing to get presents for my family and kids, celebrate and participate in the exchanging of gifts on December 25th, than why am I offended when it is called Christmas.
To me, if I do not believe in the meaning of Christmas, the birth of Christ, than I should not celebrate the day. It would be like me, a Catholic, celebrating Passover, I’m not Jewish, so why would I? And better yet, why would I get offended if other people do celebrate it? I don’t because I understand that it is their holy day, not mine. I just don’t get it!
I am at a lost for words, there is so much I want to say, but I just can’t seem to get it out… I have started and deleted this paragraph five times… People are just stupid and political correctness is making us even more so… This madness has to stop, and it has to stop now!
God Bless and Merry Christmas!
