Merry Christmas EVERYONE!


Merry Christmas EVERYONE!

It’s The Best Celebration Ever

I agree it is over commercialized and the religious significance of the day is often lost, but hands down, Christmas is the best Holiday Celebration ever!

Jews have their gift giving during Chanukah, and they have some really great feasts, but do they have a celebration to equal Christmas?

Chinese New Year’s has colors, costumes, and fireworks galore.  It looks like fun, but it is not Christmas.

I am clearly not an expert in other customs and celebrations, but it seems to me that most involve sacrifice.  I see a lot of fasting, staying inside, beating yourself with chains and other stuff.  Sacrifice is fine, I imagine God appreciates the sentiment, but there is no other holiday like Christmas. 

What other holiday has children counting down the days for a month?  What other holiday covers homes and streets with bright flickering lights?  What other holiday just makes people feel good, has them smiling, and has strangers speaking to strangers? What other holiday has the traditions: Santa, reindeer, decorating a tree, mistletoe, stockings, elves, cookies, candy canes, a huge dinner and GIVING AND RECEIVING PRESENTS?

Christmas brings families together like no other holiday, plus,


I understand that Christmas is a Christian holiday, but it is such a good time, such a great celebration, so much fun, I think everyone should celebrate the season.

You don’t believe in Jesus?  Fine, but you gotta like lights, and peace and love and GIVING AND RECEIVING PRESENTS!

You don’t accept Christ?  You don’t worship any higher power? Fine, but everyone can celebrate the ideals of Christ. Who wouldn’t celebrate the idea of peace and love and goodwill toward men?  Do unto others is a sound aspiration regardless of if or how you worship.

So I say to everyone, Jew, Muslim, Hindi, Atheist…whatever, join in the celebration, do not be left out, it is the most wonderful time of the year, it is the best celebration ever, and YOU GIVE AND GET PRESENTS!!

To me “Merry Christmas” represents more than the birth of Christ, it represents all that Christ stands for to Christians, ideals that do not conflict with any religious teachings I’ve ever heard of, ideals that all people could get behind and thus Christmas can be for everyone.

You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  

You don’t have to be Mexican to enjoy a Cinco de Mayo drink or three. 

Why do you have to be Christian to enjoy Christmas?

So please, if you are not Christian, do not be offended when I wish you Merry Christmas, you don’t have to be Christian to enjoy Christmas!

Merry Christmas EVERYONE!
A Christmas re-run

  2. I agree, everyone (EVERYONE!) should enjoy Christmas. Just because it isn't their religion or their belief, doesn't mean they can't get into the spirit and be happy about all the decorations and lights etc. I get really steamed when I hear of Kindergartens and schools not allowing Christmas celebrations because it isn't "inclusive" when some of the children are from other nations with different beliefs. I think we should keep the Christmas celebrations in the schools etc AND have days where the other nations/religions etc show us their way to celebrate. Let the kids be multicultural. And maybe the parents will follow and we have taken one more step towards peace for all. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  3. Merry Christmas Joe, Mrs. C and all the Crankettes.

  7. I went to school with a lot of Jewish kids and I think most of them had a Christmas tree!

  8. With best wishes to you and your family, JoeH.

    God bless.

  9. one of the most positive and most beautiful post i ever read dear Joe and i agree to it to fullest .

    i think despite of all celebrations Christmas sounds more adoptive because the countries in which it is celebrated has majority of other communities and i bet it is hard to not feel the magic of festival .

    i love all the traditions Christmas has specially the tree decoration and present exchange ,on Eid we have family gatherings and some gift exchange but it is not essential part so everyone can do it .

    Creator loves his creations far more than parents and he never want them to be violent or shell them selves in groups ,God is Divine and most love giving authority and being His creation we should follow his steps of love ,sharing and giving always!

  10. erry Christmas to you and loved ones dear Joe !
    health peace and happiness to you and family!
