A Socially Acceptable Christmas Greeting

"A Socially Acceptable Christmas greeting!

Best wishes for an environmentally­ conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most joyous traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, but with respect for the religious persuasion of others who choose to practice their own religion as well as those who choose not to

 practice a religion at all;

a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the generally accepted calendar year, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions have helped make our society great, without regard to the race, creed, color, or religious preferences of the wishes.

(Disclaimer: This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others and no responsibility for any unintended emotional stress these greetings may bring to those not caught up in the holiday spirit.)"--Author unknown

Hopefully that didn't offend anyone... it's pretty neutral. I find it so funny when I turn on the T.V. and someone is saying "Happy Holidays!"... ok.. what holiday are you celebrating? Isn't it Christmas? "Oh no no we can't say Christmas.. it will offend people" ... to be perfectly honest.. and I'm not trying to be mean.. but if saying the name of the holiday offends you... you should probably keep away from buying presents for everyone in your family because if you just are saying "happy holidays" I think you will be very very poor.. because when Easter rolls around.. it will make for more presents.. Saint Patty's day... presents.. the first day of summer... presents... flag day... Oooooh well that is such a cool holiday.. lets set up a tree... and have lots presents and have a "holiday turkey". Here is a headline for the world... "Stop getting so offended with everything"

So that is my little rant... I think people just need to get their heads screwed on right and realize the "holiday" that you are celebrating is the day that we choose to recognize when Jesus Christ came to earth to save all of our sinful butts from an eternity in hell. If you choose to follow Him or not.. is up to you.. but I definitely suggest that you do... your "holiday" will be much better!

So let me start this over correctly......­ wait for it.... wait for it...

Not Happy Holidays!

Best wishes to you and yours :)"---Author Matthew Pass

I had to share this with you because Matthew said this as only he can. He is a deeply spiritual man who has a real faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. You won't get fluff with Matthew. He's a radical world changer. He holds nothing back and very seldom has a filter but in a way I think our poor old world needs more people like Matthew. Maybe if it did we wouldn't be in the mess we find ourselves in now where we're afraid to say Merry Christmas. 

To all the faithful readers of Mama's Pages, thank you for your interest in this blog/book and may you have the Merriest Christmas ever! God bless!
