Politically Correct Holiday Greetings

Posted by Corey Kaster on December 8, 2009


To My Democratic Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2010, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wish.

To My Republican and Independent Friends:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in the year of our Lord Jesus Christ 2010.

    Federal law (5 U.S.C. 6103) establishes the following public holidays for Federal employees.

    New Year’s Day
    Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.
    Washington’s Birthday
    Memorial Day
    Independence Day
    Labor Day
    Columbus Day
    Veterans Day
    Thanksgiving Day
    Christmas Day

    That last entry should grab everyone’s attention. Nowhere in that list is the term “Winter Holiday” or “Holiday Season”. The Federal Government, through law, has recognized Christmas.

    What this means is this; if you take offense to the terms “Winter Holiday” or “Holiday Season” used as a substitute for the proper and legal term “Christmas”, you are well within your right to call it out and to express your concern.

    Call it what it is; that’s what words are for. We don’t modify “Happy Honika” to “Happy Candle-lighting” for our Jewish friends.

    It’s “Merry Christmas”.

    It’s legal.

    For those still feeling compelled to change it to suit them. Why don’t you leave the wording to those who observe the holiday? After all, if you want to rename it, it wasn’t your holiday in the first place.
