Merry Whatever

Okay, it's the day after Thanksgiving. It's now time to turn our attention to Christmas. Of course, given the times we live in, we must be inclusive, and take care to avoid offending anyone who doesn't celebrate Christmas.

Thank goodness we can now buy a politically correct Christmas sweater.
Over the years, political correctness has seeped into many areas of every day life.

Christmas time in particular is a period where every effort is made to include even those of non-Christian faiths in the festive cheer.

So ... it was only a matter of time before someone invented the 'Multicultural Christmas Jumper.'
(The) multicoloured offering features several different signs of faith including; Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Sikh, a form of scientific atheism, Chinese philosophy and also the peace sign.
And to help guide you through those awkward social encounters when you wish someone a happy (insert holiday here) and they are offended, here's a guide that I wish everyone would take to heart.

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone, regardless of his or her religious/spiritual leanings, would look beyond the words and into the heart of someone who offers them a Christmas/Hanukkah etc. greeting?

That's the true spirit of the (insert holiday here) season.

Heh.. That poster is on the money... Separate 'religions' should be able to co-exis... oh never mind...

It's a nice thought ... but it takes two to make peace, and only one to make war.
