Ever since Donald Trump won the presidency, some have been saying that it's okay to celebrate Christmas again.
To this, I ask: Were you not celebrating Christmas before this administration?
Jordan Klepper has a great video in which he interviewed people at a Trump rally and asked them what was normalized under the new administration (2:01 in the video). Two women said Trump has made it 'okay again' to be a Christian and to say 'Merry Christmas.'
I understand what they mean by people saying 'Happy Holidays' being 'too PC', but it's not like Christmas doesn't take up 1/6th of the year. It's practically forced down our throats the moment Halloween ends.
In fact, keeping 'Christ' in Christmas is quite easy when there are blow-up nativity scenes on people's front lawns and songs played over and over on the radio about Christ's birth. You can never forget the 'reason for the season' because it is constantly in your face this time of year. Side note: Something we both can agree on? Commercialism is killing Christmas. That's a whole other issue.
The most significant problem I have with people saying there's a 'war on Christmas' is the fact there was never a war, to begin with. Acting like you're a marginalized group when you are the largest denomination of any religion in this country is childish.
A study done by Pew Research center in 2014 showed if there were only 100 citizens in the U.S., there would be 71 Christians compared to two Jewish people and one Muslim person. To say Christmas is coming under fire from other religious denominations is absurd because there is not enough of any other one religion to declare war on the entire population of Christians in this country.
I apologize for the angry tone of this article, but I truly do not understand why there must be this underlying rage at Christmas time to 'keep Christ in Christmas.' Let's all be joyful and happy that this time of year involves people coming together for one purpose in gratitude and cheer.
Keep the happiness at Christmas.
