THANK you Mick McGlone for making more people aware of the stupidity of political correctness regarding Christmas greetings.
I was unable (I did give up after about four attempts) to find packs of cards at one of our large stores in Lavington that had a greeting addressing the reason for the season, that is Christmas and the birth of Christ.
I acknowledge not all people are of Christian faith and many would regard themselves as having no faith but in a way all who send cards, exchange gifts or participate in any Christmas activity are passively taking part in the spirit of Christmas and on the whole we are all the better for it.
Unfortunately commercialism has hijacked the real reason for the season which is Jesus’ birth but at least let us greet people in a true Christmas tradition.
May I wish all readers a peaceful and happy Christmas.
