Hearing "Merry Christmas !"

I don't know if it's me or what, but have you heard the words, Merry Christmas" said more often this season than last? After ringing bells for the Salvation Army and participating in other holiday events, I seem to have heard those two words expressed more often than last year. We all remember the issues some stores faced, and still do, about saying Merry Christmas versus Happy Holidays. Could it be many are doing it defiantly because of corporate restrictions? I think much of the controversy has died down because of the rebellion of so many of you around the country. Whatever the reason it seems life is back to normal in that regard and that's a good thing.

    it is so silly when they try to make people not say merry christmas and if it offends someone oh well this is America and jesus is the reason for the season!When they even attempt to stop ppl from saying 'Merry Christmas they are taking our right to free speech,people can have their own opinion,it's time ppl stood up for what is right,no one is trying to hurt anyone or offend anyone but its our right if we want to say,Merry Christmas.
