I have placed a MerryChristmas sign in the back window of my car for all the driving world to see. And I now conclude each and every public transaction, whether it be with the check-out clerk at the grocery store or with the kid who hands me my fast-food meal through the drive-through window, with a happy and hearty Merry Christmas!
At work, I have placed a big Merry Christmas! stencil in the window of my office and when needing to mention the company’s annual celebration, I always refer to it as the Christmas Party, not the holiday party. I’ve only been corrected once for uttering that scandalous word but calmly explained to my politically duped colleague that I am celebrating Christmas, the holiday that is intrinsically part of America’s culture and wasn’t it rather silly to pretend otherwise. So if people felt offended by the word Christmas, a Christian religious holy day, then perhaps they were in need of in-depth diversity training. Smiled sweetly. End of discussion. Score one for our side.
So come on, all you closet Christians and all you petrified patriots—stick your necks out and create a little joyful noise. It’s fun, it’s empowering, and it’s pushback.
