Happy Holidays Merry Christmas With a Capitol C

Happy Holidays! Feliz Navidad! Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas! I’ve seen Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas in different languages on the net, but I’m not about to start saying Happy Holidays just because saying Merry Christmas might offend someone. Too bad, so sad. It’s called Christmas With a Capitol C people!

I don’t care if you say Happy Holidays or Merry  Christmas or simply “have a great day”. The point is that there is continuing debate about the legalities of having Christmas nativity scenes or a copy of the Bible etc in or around public places because “someone might be offended”.  Just to be clear, I say Happy Holidays as well as Merry Christmas during the holiday season, and will continue to do so no matter what.

“IT’S CALLED CHRISTMAS WITH A CAPITAL C”

It’s called Christmas!

Well I went to the coffee shop to get myself a mocha,
The lady at the counter said “Happy holidays”;
I said, “Thanks lady, I am pretty happy,
But there’s only one holiday that makes me feel that way.”

It’s called Christmas, what more can I say?
It’s about the birth of Christ
and you can’t take that away.
You can call it something else,
but that’s not what it will be.
It’s called Christmas with a capital “C.”

God’s got a law and we pretty much destroyed it.
We’re gonna get judged, there’s no way to avoid it.
But Jesus came down to take the punishment for me.
He did it for you too, so maybe you can see . . .

Why It’s called Christmas, what more can I say?
It’s about the birth of Christ
and you can’t take that away.
You can call it something else,
but that’s not what it will be.
It’s called Christmas with a capital “C.”

It’s called Christmas!
It’s called Christmas!
It’s called Christmas!
It’s called Christmas!

    For me it’s not so much about offending people, just remembering that it isn’t just about Christmas. Saying “Happy Holidays” isn’t a cop-out to avoid offending non-Christians. It’s inclusive (remember the new year?) and works for everyone. If you don’t want to say it, then don’t. You can focus on Christmas and no one is judging you for it.

    I actually say them all at different times and with different people without even thinking about it. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas etc simply denote my personal holiday wish for anyone I’m talking to. I have read or heard on television over the last few years about some people who are actually offended when given a Christmas greeting of one kind of another.

    It’s pretty ridiculous to me, as there has been occasions where someone has wished me Happy Hanukkah even though I’m not of that religious belief, but I’m not going to be offended by it because I understand the message involved.
