No One Cares That ‘Merry Christmas’ Offends You
Okay so the headline probably led you to click on the link. However, this is not click-bait, this is the real deal, keepin' it 100, tell it like it is truth.
Renee Nelson brought up SUCH a great point on the Moose Morning Show today.. Instead of getting offended and calling an Uber to rush you to your safe-space, if someone says "happy holidays", "merry Christmas", "Happy Hanukkah" or any other variation thereof, just either say it back, or say "THANK YOU"!
I think we often get too wrapped up in what is being said as opposed to what is being felt this time of the year. Sure, the majority of us Christians are probably going to say "Merry Christmas". Those who are non-Christian or members of other faiths will say something else.. And in the grand scheme, who cares? Don't you think it would be far more productive (and nice) to be grateful that someone is being kind enough to send you well-wishes during the season?
I don't know, maybe I get too fired up by this, maybe I try to find too much good in people. Maybe I just like to think that anyone who is taking time out of their day to wish me well doesn't need to be classified as a Christian, Atheist, Agnostic or other. Can't they just be classified as a decent human being?
