The wishing of a Merry Christmas
I don’t celebrate Christmas. I really don’t.
However, if someone takes the time out from their day to wish me a merry one I don’t get all in a huff about it, I smile and tell them, “back at ya!” or “You too.”
It doesn’t bother me.
Because someone actually took the time to wish me well. They took the time to say something kind, to share their joy.
Why would I resent that?
I feel the same way if someone wishes me a Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Joyful Solstice, Merry Yule or Happy Holidays.
I am glad they took the time to share their joy in their holiday with me.
For whichever holiday you enjoy, I wish you a very merry, happy, and joyous one!
