[DMCForum] Re: Merry Christmas



Marc

Like Dave, I'm going to stray from my normal "don't get involved in
one of Marc's rants".

Is there an "assumption that everyone celebrates Christmas"?  More and
more in this country there are attempts (some successful and some not)
to be sure that there is recognition of other "celebrations",
religious or otherwise.  I applaud that.  Now, I celebrate Christmas.
I have many friends who do not.  I am aware that Muslims, people of
the Jewish faith, Aetheists, Taoists, and many others do not
"celebrate" Christmas. 

As a general greeting during this season, I wish people a Merry
Christmas, especially if that is how I was greeted.  To my Jewish
frinds and customers, I wish a Happy Chanakuh.  And in many cases, it
is simply Happy Holidays.  Yes, I play Christmas music in my store
during this season because I sell that music.  I also sell Chanakuh
cards and Buddhist literature.  I don't make the assumption you stated.

I contend that if there is an naive and inconsiderate assumption, it
is the one you just proclaimed as fact!!  But then, Marc, we all know
that you were just trying to stir the pot, right?
