445. Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?

 I liked this article by Muslim imam Sikander Hashmi published in Kingston Ontario’s thewhig.com .

 “…just because someone doesn’t want to include Christmas in their greetings doesn’t necessarily mean that they mean disrespect. Likewise, if someone offers Christmas greetings to those who don’t celebrate the holiday, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re trying to impose their beliefs on others…”

 Please read the full piece and let us know what you think:


 And I hope you had some happy moments this past week in spite of the ice storm. Ruth.

  1. Happy holidays! I share the author’s perspective entirely. Live and let live, is what I understand him to say. And I feel sorry for anyone who chooses to get offended when someone greets them from the heart, whatever the words used.
