Happy holidays? What is all this politically correct nonsense about and has everybody gone mad? I'm not a Christian and I don't believe in God, but I think it's absolutely ridiculous the lengths that some people go to in order not upset the minorities (or are they heading towards the majority now?).
cut out this politically correct nonsense and wish each other a Merry Christmas...
Obviously the phrase "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" is more popular in the US than it is in the UK at the moment, but it's only a matter of time before our traditions and values are eroded to the point that they are no longer recognisable. If you want another example consider that fiasco of the Hot Cross Bun ban a few years ago!
I'll be the first to admit that I find Christmas a bit much, so much so that I deliberately try to avoid the shops at this time of year. I get fed up with the endless Christmas songs on the radio and the street that was once normal now looks like Blackpool promenade during the trades fortnight! My gripe is more with the PC brigrade this time though. I think that Christmas should remain as it is, it's for the kids after all and we shouldn't be pandering to the whims of those who object for religious reasons.
Whilst we are on the subject of Christmas and political correctness gone mad. Who on earth is the idiot at Radio One who has suddenly decided that song by the Pogues, "Fairytale of New York" is offensive? Are they having a laugh? Faggots are also those meaty things that come in a rich gravy that you can buy in the supermarket. It's just another example of this complete and utter madness!
Come on folks, cut out this politically correct nonsense and wish each other a Merry Christmas, not Happy Holidays!
