As the holiday's approach, or if yours is in full swing right now, I make a nation wide wish for us all...GET OVER YOURSELF. That's right, you read it correctly, get over yourself and your holiday/religion. It's all so silly too fight over. This is supposed to be a joyful time of year for all holiday's involved and instead I feel as though I'm doing something criminal when I wish a "Merry Christmas!" to people I run into. Like I'm forcing it down their throats or something. I would love for someone to wish me a "Happy Chanukah!", I think it would be neat! I would then wish them a "Merry Christmas" right back because we are both celebrating our separate holidays with the same lovely intention.
Wish me a Happy Kwanza, Boxing Day, FESTIVUS (and if you don't know what Festivus is I feel terribly sorry for you), Christmas or Chanukah; I promise I won't bite your head off with holiday negativity about equality for all or "Don't push your religion down my throat!" malarkey. I will accept the greeting in the spirit in which it is intended and respond in kind.
I hope your holiday is just what you want and is a fabulous time filled with family, friends, and great food. That is my wish for us all. SO...next time you see me wish me YOUR holiday cheer because I'm wishing everyone a "Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!"
