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"?

Hey, if you want to put up billboards, fine. But I say "Happy Holidays" and will continue to say it because I am not Christian and most of my friends are not Christian. Jesus is the reason for Christmas, but he is NOT the "reason for the season". There are a number of faiths with December holidays, and unless I know what faith the person follows, I am not going to assume that the person is celebrating Christmas. That has nothing to do with being politically correct, and everything to do with being considerate.

Amen! And congratulations, ladies, for inspiring a nation to take back the reason for the season--Christ. When I go shopping (groceries--can't afford commercial gifts) I always correct the clerks that wish me "Happy holidays"; I always look them in the eye and say "I prefer to say Merry Christmas" They sometimes look at me with surprise, but more often they smile.

Thank you ladies. I'm a Christian, and I plan to keep on saying Merry Christmas!!
