Well, it’s actually here: Christmas Day! Some people argue that, we should start and end our wishes with the politically correct “Happy Holiday(s)”, instead of the traditional “Merry Christmas”, and perhaps they do have a point as, whereas many people take time off to be with their families these days (mainly in the Western world), some don't necessarily do it because they're Christians, but because they live in a predominantly Christian country and have accepted the local customs.
On the other hand, and while it is true that we cater to an international and diverse crowd, shouldn't we give the appropriate and millenniums-old wishes to those of us who actually do celebrate Christmas (for spiritual and/or traditional reasons)?
Yes, like everything else religion-related, it can be a delicate subject, depending on which side of the fence you stand on, but if you're asking for my thoughts, you should already know them from the title of this piece and I'll gladly hear yours in the comments section – just after you take a…relaxing peep at the humorous videos posted below, you know, to lighten the atmosphere.
PS: We'll be taking it easy today and tomorrow (Thursday, December 26) with a reduced number of stories to spend some quality time with our families, and we will return to our regular schedule on Friday.
