This was printed in a couple of newspapers last Christmas and I think it bears repeating now.
Some folks say that it is not politically correct to say “Merry Christmas” to You because You may take offense.
Politically correct is for politicians who must get elected.
When I wish You “Merry Christmas” I mean it.
I don’t just mean Happy Holidays. I mean Merry Christmas.
I am a Christian but, I am not trying to convert You or force my religious beliefs on You.
Christmas is important to me, so wishing You “Merry Christmas” shows how I feel about You.
So, Merry Christmas!
I hope happiness finds You
And, although I am not Buddhist, when I say “Merry Christmas” please hear “A peaceful and joyful Vesak”
I wish that You have a season full of joy
And, although I am not Jewish, when I say “Merry Christmas” please hear “Happy Hannukah”
I hope You have Days of plenty
And although I am not Muslim, when I say “Merry Christmas” please hear “Have a blessed Ramadan”
I wish that your friends and family are safe and happy
Although I am not of African descent, when I say “Merry Christmas” please hear “Joyous Kwanzaa”
I hope You find some joy every day
Although I am not an atheist, when I say “Merry Christmas” please hear, “I wish You happiness”
I don’t know Your religious beliefs, or even if You have any but, I do, sincerely and with all my heart wish You a very Merry Christmas!
