Collections That Say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Season's Greetings

I live in a small town, the kind of place where you meet the same people on your way to work,  where folks still gather to collect the gossip over morning coffee, where the barber arrives early and shovels the snow for his downtown neighbours.

And during this holiday season, it is still the kind of place where people customarily greet each other with the words, "Merry Christmas".  Well, why wouldn't they, you may ask. The thing is, I also live in a wonderful country comprised of many different cultures and religions,  Due to the 'melting pot' demographic outside my tiny community, one may as often hear "Season's Greetings" or "Happy Holidays.

It's a fact that has become somewhat of a sensitive topic for some Christians, as the "Christ" part of "Christmas" is in their words, "The Reason for the Season."  So to them, I indeed wish a very Merry Christmas.

However,  while no, in its purest form, it may not be everyone's celebration, Christmas is a beautiful holiday with a message that is significant and meaningful no matter what your culture, ethnicity and religion. It is a time of peace and goodwill, of generosity of spirit and means. It is a message to be shared.  In my opinion it is a time to extend a greeting to all, regardless of their beliefs.  So to those who don't celebrate the birth of the Christ child, to you I wish "Happy Holidays" and "Season's Greetings.
