At first it really bothered me when people said Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. This holiday is because of the birth of Christ and I felt that one should at least acknowledge it by the words Merry Christmas.
Thing is though. Each to their own. Really. If you don’t want to celebrate Christmas and instead just want to celebrate
uhm…getting presents the holidays then that is your choice.
What I don’t get is why the presents are then still given on Christmas day / Eve. Why not randomly give it whenever? Why the day that is celebrated as Christ’s birthday? Why send messages and cards if it is just another holiday? I’m by no means saying it is wrong to do so, I just wonder why. Why celebrate that specific day? Just because Hallmark is making money out of the day?
Like I say though – each to their own.
I hope you had a special Christmas or that you are having a happy holiday.
