Why Nott Me

Monday, November 28, 2005

We have this new debate going on at work. There are many of us that take exception to “Holiday Party”, instead of Christmas Party. Why would we be having a “Holiday” with out Christ? Our county is always so worried about being “politically” correct. It drives me nuts. And I don’t agree. Not too long ago I read and article stating that only (under 20%) was not Christian. And we’re changing everything for them? Whatever happened to the majority ruling? It seems that everyone wants to leave Christ out, but what do they thing we’re celebrating? Probably a tangent I should leave alone. But it irks me.

One of my biggest peeves too! It really gets me going when I hear stories about pulling God out of every aspect of American life and then I hear another story telling me that 80% of Americans consider themselves Christians....seems so odd to me!

I found you through your comment on Ann's blog. Come visit mine when you have a minute. Feel free to leave comments or not...Thanks! I'll be back to yours!

I think it's sad that we use the word holiday and not Christmas. It's the same at school. We no longer have Christmas and Easter vacation, now it's winter break and spring break..

It irks me too. We don't try changing other peoples religious holidays so we can join in too.

It annoys me, too, but those 20% are more vocal than our 80% and companies are afraid to get sued. Michael has a winter party. Sheesh! But, speak up!!

Hi again, Sheryl
Knitting! If you are interested in a simple sequence of stitches that gives an unbelievable double knit (thick, fluffy, soft) look, let me know! I think I saw in one of your posts that you are planning to knit a scarf (oooh -- maybe I'm wrong on that...I should have commented right away before reading other stuff!) anyway, a great way to knit a scarf is length-wise (not end to end)! You might have to put 150 stitches on the needle, but then you only have to knit a few rows and the sky is the limit as to how you do each row! If you cut and tie your yarn at the end of each row, when you finish you will have tassles ready-made. Also, by doing it that way, you can use different textures of yarn and different colours so easily. A row or two of super fuzzy stuff stuck in can dress up the look amazingly and kids (even BIG kids) really like it!

Hi Sheryl,
Just wanted to thank you for visiting my blog and your comments. Not sure how you found me, but glad you did. We both live in IN!!

My friend and I were discussing this very same thing yesterday. She told me of a conversation her son had with the check out lady at our local WalMart. I guess they had a meeting for their employees telling them they now have to say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas, so as to not offend anyone. Ridiculous!! But since we know the end of the story, I guess we should expect it. The world will continue to grow farther and farther away from the Bible and more and more into "world peace".

Take care, God Bless you and Merry Christmas!
