While corporate and bureaucratic organizations like to wish us “Happy Holidays” there is really only one holiday being celebrated by the majority in Western countries: Christmas.
Perhaps it is the fear of using the “Christ” in Christmas that offends people so. Such people, if they have not read my earlier post, should realize that even the word “holiday” is fraught with PC problems.
The word “holiday” has its roots in holy day, a reflection of the religious influence of many of these breaks from work. So even the bland wish of “Happy Holidays” is itself a reflection of the religious roots of this mid winter festival of consumerism and secularism.
So to all my readers, have a happy holy day, a great Christmas, and, if you do not pray to the Christian god, enjoy December 25 as best you can (you heathens).
