Over morning coffee, five friends inspire “Merry Christmas” billboards

What on Earth could five Christian ladies do to stem the tide of "political correctness" stifling "Merry Christmas"?

“As Christians, we were offended,” the five told the morning news shows.

Over coffee, Joanne Brown, Linda Bennett, Judi Hanna, Laurie Kramer and Pat See, all of the Youngstown, Ohio, area — lamented Americans’ increasingly “politically correct” pressure to mumble “Happy Holidays” rather than risk offending someone by saying “Merry Christmas.” What could they do about it? They came up with the idea of billboards. Within weeks, they had raised enough money for two billboards reading, “I miss hearing you say Merry Christmas” and “Why have you stopped saying Merry Christmas?” Both were signed, “Jesus.”

The next year, they raised enough money for four billboards. Now

they’re at it again. With donations from friends, the five paid for seven billboards around Youngstown with the messages: “I miss hearing you say Merry Christmas” and “It’s OK to say Merry Christmas” — again signed “Jesus.”
