Sound Destruction: I WAS JUST THINKING:

Thursday, December 15, 2005


with all this bull shit talk by the right about how clerks should say "merry christmas" instead of "happy holidays" I have a simple question...

isn't the holiday about jesus and celebrating goodness...

not commercialism and shoping?

if their focus is on what clerks are saying in stores, aren't they forgetting the true meaning of christmas?

and as for saying happy holidays as opposed to merry christmas...


when I worked retail no one ever seamed to really care what I said to them after I just sold them $300 in cd's. they were more worried about where they were going to find tickle me elmo or whatever the hot gift was that year.

so to all the idiots who make something out of nothing...a big old..

to you.

I'll bet you they would also be pissed that I didnt capitalize "christmas" and "jesus" too.

I better not type god with a lower case "g" either.

You were just thinking? I thought I smelled smoke. ;)

I agree that a lot is often made out nothing. And I'll add that we're a nation that often gets too PC to the point of absurdity.

But, the thing is, there's more than one holiday occurring this time of year and to only say "Merry Christmas" to strangers is actually kind of presumptuous, in my mind. The "Happy Holidays" greeting to strangers gets my nod.

Holiday means Holy Day, so it seems as if it should be okay.

But honestly, I don't care if people wish me a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday, Festive Solstice, Hanukkah, Ramadan or Kwanzaa. As long as they wish me well, and not evil, I'm okay with their warm greeting.

But, of course, it's all about the sales...

I totally agree.
I don't give a shit if someone tells merry cristmas or happy holidays. My holiday is Chanukah and it's not even an important one at that. I only get a present for my niece.
Christmas is an american holiday for americans. In fact, I celebrated more of x-mas than chanukah.
Political correctness sucks in all aspects.
Those who don't like any of the major winter holidays, there is one hiday left: FESTIVUS FOR REST OF US

Poor Christian right. They are such a persecuted bunch. What next, first evolution, now this! My heart bleeds.

I'm with Ned-head.

Clerk: "Happy holidays."
Shopper: "What? How dare you. I just bought a bag of Doritos and you didn't publicly recognize my religion?!?"

Yeah, I agree. The whole controversy is kinda silly. Whether or not one takes the "true meaning of Christmas" to heart has nothing to do with what you say, except the intent. I mean, if you mean it to be a message of love/joy/peace, then it's all good!
