I get the whole Christmas thing and how non Christians might be somewhat uncomfortable celebrating the whole Jesus was born day… wait, have any of the atheist I have ever known not taken that day off? hrm…
So sure, we say happy holidays now (I say Happy Christmas because of Harry Potter) to be politically correct, but why can’t we say happy thanksgiving. I have been told 3 times today, Happy Holiday… and I am like, what? Happy Thanksgiving! its a Harvest Holiday… everyone eats… everyone should celebrate that without being offended.
What is it, turkey haters, PETA activists? they would be offended by being lumped together with the meat eaters of the world? They would be offended that there is a holiday to give thanks for the things we have?
I don’t get it… I will call it turkey day, because turkey is tasty! and well also because I think it is good to count our blessings and give thanks!
