It’s time to enjoy the holidays for what it is and not what a few think it should be.
It’s Christmas, one of the holiest of seasons. We should embrace it as such.
For those being caught up in the political correctness of our society, we say, save it for another day. It’s a Christmas tree, not a holiday tree. Children sing Christmas carols at school Christmas programs, not holiday carols and holiday programs. We indulge on Christmas cookies, not holiday cookies.
You get the idea.
Nativity scenes help relive and capture the moment. Is that such a bad thing? We think not.
We certainly understand that there are those who have other religious beliefs that don’t celebrate Christmas and that’s OK. That shouldn’t mean, however, that those who do observe it should have to also refrain from celebrating.
Let’s enjoy the Christmas season as it was intended, and respect those around us – regardless of our beliefs.
