My Salutation to you is....

I have written this many times on facebook and maybe other places when I see keep Christ in Christmas and say Merry Christmas...the first thing I would like to say is that my Christ will always be in MY matter what salutation I express to anyone else..Christmas is NOT the only holiday in December and I have many friends that celebrate holidays other than Christmas...I have Jewish friends to whom I say Happy Hanukkah..I have African American friends that may celebrate Kwanzaa ..therefore if I know this I say Happy Kwanzaa...If I am standing in line at the bank or walmart or the grocery store and we strike up a conversation ..but our holidays never come up...I may say to you upon departing from you Happy Holidays....which would mean that whatever holiday you celebrate have a happy one and a Happy New Year...simple as in no way means I am taking Christ out of Christmas....So to all my friends Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa...and to all a Happy New Year...


  1. I just love your thoughts and completely agree. Keeping Christ in Christmas is something in your heart. If anyone says "Happy Holidays" does not mean they do not have Christ in their Christmas.

  2. Thanks for sharing this Brenda. Wishing someone a good sentiment should never have it tainted with political correctness.

  3. Thank you for sharing these beautiful thoughts Brenda!

  4. What a beautiful way to share! Love it!

  5. Good thoughts! I think people get so uptight about saying "the right thing" that they don't know if they should say anything at all due to the offense that others take. I take no offense in whatever greeting someone gives me, I'm just pleased that they were kind enough to give a greeting.

  6. Beautiful...I too agree keep Christ in Christmas
