Christmas is coming!
Christmas is kind of a big deal all over the world. But let me ask, when was the last time someone said to you 'Merry Christmas'? Nowadays, in an effort to not offend those who do not celebrate Christmas or do not believe what Christmas stands for we say 'Happy Holidays!'
There is nothing wrong with this at all! With the workplace becoming ever more diverse, I welcome the change. This grammatical change is so widespread that I think we don't even notice it anymore. For those that don't exactly agree saying it is "politically correct", then think of it this way-- we are creating a culture that respects others' differences. Making it more comfortable for all to celebrate their respected holidays as they believe and see fit. If people were to constantly tell you 'Happy Kwanzaa' every day even though you don’t celebrate it, would it make you feel uncomfortable? It is an American holiday so...
Sure, companies are now going with the politically correct 'Holiday Greetings', and offices now have holiday parties instead of Christmas parties. Though the name has changed to include all versions of celebrations, the main idea is still in place -- to spend time with friends and family. It's a time where everyone comes together. It's about being inclusive where we can say 'Merry Christmas' and other holiday greetings without forcing our beliefs on others.
Speaking of Christmas/Holiday office parties, I hope you have one as crazy as this:
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, and Happy Kwanzaa from the Wetogethr family!
