Merry Christmas to all whether you celebrate it or not :)

To all my friends and family, please have a safe and happy Christmas season.

I’m not going to say Happy Holiday because the reason we have holidays at this time of year is because it is Christmas, whether you celebrate it or not :)
I don’t understand the PC blah blah.
If a Jewish/Muslim/Hindu/Druid person wished me a happy whatever they celebrate I’d say thank you and wish it back and be pleased they offered me this blessing.
Me saying Merry Christmas doesn’t necessarily mean I am a stout Christian. It is a celebratory tradition I grew up with and is a time for merriment with family and a time to reflect on life and the universe and how I am doing in the scheme of things… can I be a better person? Also a time to be grateful for what and who I have in my life. That’s what it means for me anyway.

So Happy Christmas, eat drink and be merry, and stay safe my friends.

    Hope you have a Happy time with family and friends Maree – we are having a very quiet time over Christmas and New Year – Peace and Joy are wished for you – Merry Christmas – Mattie x

  • Thanks Mattie. We have my family’s do today at my mother’s in my home town. My son recently got his driver’s license so that means if my husband and I decided to have a drink, we could – doesn’t mean we will, but at least we have a choice :)))
    Tomorrow is dinner at the in-laws.
    We alternate Christmas with the families each year to be fair. Works out with everyone :)

    Maree – you’ve hit the nail on the head. Let’s not dig too deeply into how these traditions were created by men. We should be full of Peace, Happiness and Love to all mankind every day of our lives, not restrict it to just one day a year, methinks. May the New Year bring you and your Family and friends much Joy! :)george

  • Thanks George and yes I agree, but it’s lovely to have a day where all the goodwill culminates… and includes lots of great food lol.
    Hope you and yours have had a great day.
