Thank you for using proper term: Christmas

Duncan – Merry Christmas to all. To those who refer to this “season” or “holiday” by its proper name, “Christmas”, I express a heartfelt thank you. In behalf of the man whose birth we celebrate at this time of year I wish everyone peace, love and acceptance for that is what he taught.

To the business establishments who have the courage to call it by its proper name, Christmas, yours are the ones where I, along with a growing number of Christians, shop. To those who don’t, you still get a day off with pay because he lived. (I am aware our government has changed the stat to the 26th but it originated with Christmas.)

May everyone have a wonderful

2015 filled with joy and laughter.
