With that said, on the day after Christmas (excuse me, the day after holiday) someone told me "Happy New Year." Wait a minute, what if New Year offends me? It is no secret that I don't watch the ball drop or even stay up until midnight on New Year's Eve, so I shouldn't have to suffer through a cashier telling me to have a happy new year, should I?
If "happy holidays" is just a generic way of summing up all of the occasions of the season, then why are they allowed to specifically mention New Years? Let's just call it what it is and admit that this is an anti-Christian way of removing the birth of Christ from our culture.
If we cannot acknowledge Christmas, then why did I not get my mail on December 25th (or 24!)? If I were an atheist I would be a little offended that the government is honoring the holiday.
If we are going to be this immature as a nation then from now on there should be no more references to Valentine's Day, Martin Luther King Jr., Day, President's Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day, or any other event. Either they are all merely holidays, or they are to be recognized for what they are. Christmas is a holy day, and whether society likes it or not, Jesus was born. The government tried to put a stop to it back then, so we should not expect anything different now.
