It’s that time of year of ghosts and goblins. If I’m being honest, my idea of a “Happy Halloween” is no Halloween at all.
How come no one questions the whole commercialized money making monster that Halloween has become? Why is it okay to wish someone a “Happy Halloween” but “Merry Christmas” is wrong?
It bothers me. The same crowd that unashamedly celebrates Halloween is a big part of the group that complains about my saying “Merry Christmas.” Not that I want people to stop their Halloween celebrations. I just want the same respect I give them to be given in return. It begs the question, who is the real intolerant entity in this equation?
I don’t believe there is such a thing as being politically correct. You’ll offend someone no matter what you do. If we respect each other in our differences, we can all enjoy our holiday traditions.
You may be able to tell that political correctness isn’t a big concern of mine. I decided long ago to write as the Holy Spirit leads and let Him prepare the hearts of the readers.
