It’s almost Christmas and I will be in Wyoming for all of next week, so this place will be very quiet for that period.
At work today my boss handed out Christmas cards thanking us for our hard work. Not just generic, Santa Claus and snowmen cards, but full-on Christian, worship Jesus cards. Now, he’s a nice guy and receiving that kind of card doesn’t offend me (I really don’t care), but I can’t imagine being comfortable handing those out. It may be Montana (where we have letter writers who claim that being Muslim is a sign of being on the far Left – no, I’m not joking), but I do know there are people of other religions (and no religion) who work there. It’s the same with the “Happy Holidays” vs. “Merry Christmas” thing. I wouldn’t be offended by someone saying Merry Christmas to me when I didn’t celebrate Christmas, but it seems weird to me to say it to someone if you don’t know what they actually celebrate.
