Ok, most of the people on my list know that I am not religious. I’m pretty much to the point where I’m considered somewhere between an atheist and agnostic depending on the day, whether or not I had sex the night before and if there’s any orange juice in the fridge. I’m also not those types of freaks out there that feels the need to force their lack of religion (the same also goes for them bible-thumping freaks) to others as well. My beliefs (or lack of beliefs) are pretty much my business and I keep it at that. Oddly enough however, I am extremely interested in theology so I like sitting down with people of all faiths or reading texts and learning about them. Weird eh?
Anyway, what’s got me all sorts of confused now is how Christmas all of a sudden became this profane term today. You can’t say it in public, stores don’t even mention anything about it anywhere, schools now have Winter and Spring breaks, television commercials do not dare utter that word and so on and so forth.
When I was a kid, (and it wasn’t too long ago) we all said Merry Christmas (or Happy Chanukah) to each other, even if you happened to be of another faith. All of the stores had their Christmas sales, you got to watch all of the kick ass Christmas television specials, we had Christmas break and Easter break… Now it seems everyone is scared shitless to say anything other than “holiday” when referring to that C word. Am I the only one who’s thinking this political correctness bullshit is going way too far?
