Well there are many evidences in today's culture, that point to pushing Christ out of CHRISTmas. Just recently Macy's and Wal-Mart have replaced Merry Christmas with Happy Holidays.
The problem is they are large companies that have such a huge say in our country and economy and not just ours.
So below are some sites that point to excluding Christ from CHRISTmas.
I think that we as Canadians should be allowed to say Merry Christmas no matter what others think. If I choose to say Merry Christmas and someone is offended than their response should be whatever they choose. In other words, if you choose to respond by saying Happy Holidays then so be it.
It used to be that in other countries you would have to worry about what you stood for when it came to your beliefs about Jesus; but now we as Christians and even those that are not Christians but still believe in God are the ones that have to worry. I shouldn't be forced to change my beliefs b/c of what other's believe. I respect their beliefs and I think our beliefs should be the same on respecting other beliefs. If you choose not to partake in saying Merry Christmas than don't. Say whatever you feel.
Christmas is the celebration of Jesus Christ's birthday. No matter what you want to change it to, it all boils down to the birth of Jesus Christ.
Canada is the country of freedom which includes: freedom of speech. Canada is suffering b/c we want to take Christ out of everything and that's just impossible. We can't please every religion and everybody. Changing something that's been here for decades is ridiculous.
We want to say, "MERRY CHRISTMAS AND MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU".
