And, yes. I say Happy Holidays to EVERYONE I meet. I do not know the beliefs of every stranger to which I give holiday greetings. How do I know if they celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Mawlid an Nabi, Omisoka, Yule or Saturnalia?? It's none of my business. All I am doing is wishing each person of ANY belief system an enjoyable holiday season. Plain and simple. Why does everything need to be turned into some exhausting, theological debate?
To that end, I have stopped watching the news! LOL!
Here are some HOLIDAY decorations for you to enjoy... ;-)
Well, I didn't mean this post to be a history lesson! :-) However, browsing the history of certain "Christmas" traditions has been quite enlightening! So many traditions are shared between so many different beliefs. If we can share these little traditions, why can't we share in the love of life? My hope for this world, at this time, for this season is for all people of all beliefs to respect one another.
Besides, it feels so much better to love than to hate!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU ALL!!
