|Texas Agriculture Secretary Sid Miller is going to slap|
you if you wish him "happy holidays' instead of
"Merry Christmas." I don't think I'll wish him anything.
You get the picture.
Sid's complaints about not being wished a "Merry Christmas" is all part of the "War on Christmas" a few conservatives and evangelicals think they see. Right, Bill O'Reilly?
The Huffington Post offers a helpful chart to help you determine if you are being persecuted or not, so take a look at that, Sid Miller and friends.
What the "War On Christmas" really is is people who can't live with the fact that not everybody celebrates Christmas the way they do, and some people don't celebrate Christmas at all.
Yes, the whole Mary and Joseph and Jesus in the manger thing is really important and wonderful to millions of people and I think that's a great thing.
Is it really in the Christmas spirit, though, to slap down, literally or figuratively, people who are perhaps not that into Christmas, but are still generous enough to wish you well?
It's the season of sharing. Maybe share some warmth instead of Grinchy bitterness instead.
