Today, I would like to wish all of you, yes ALL of you — MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Today, I won’t say – HAPPY HOLIDAYS! – Instead, I will say – MERRY CHRISTMAS!
The reason that I wish MERRY CHRISTMAS to you is actually very simple: I am a Christian, and as a Christian, I've learned that during this season I should wish peace, love and happiness to all mankind regardless of religious creed, race, culture or political views. Instead of saying “Peace, Love and Happiness” to you and your family - we say “MERRY CHRISTMAS”.
We, Christians, believe that Jesus - the son of God - was born in Bethlehem and He brought “Peace, Love and Happiness” to the world. A world that was very complicated at that time.
If you believe that Jesus was the son of God, the greatest man ever, and a man that preached for peace, love and happiness among the human race, then there is nothing wrong with saying “MERRY CHRISTMAS”.
Today, my atheist brother, I ask you to please not to get offended when I tell You “MERRY CHRISTMAS." Jesus taught me that you are my brother because we are humans. He also taught me that I should wish the best for my brother .
