School Concert

I have just returned from my Grade 2 granddaughter's Christmas concert ( Oops- -Winter concert). The children put their hearts and souls into all the songs and actions they did , great job kids.

Years ago I remember going to school Christmas concerts, such lovely songs of the season were sung. We could say Merry Christmas. Now, the concerts must not contain anything that refers to religion because it may offend some people. We have to say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas as it might offend some one. I can think of two other words that are used so often in peoples conversations that offend people more.

I am going to continue to say Merry Christmas.

Thanks, I feel so much better now that I have go that off my chest.



  1. I'm with you on this one ,it makes me angry when we are expected to say Happy Holidays , I refuse to do so .I'm Christian and our greeting is Merry Christmas ,I respect others special days and will use their greeting if I know it .They need to show me and all other Christians that same respect .

  2. Me too, I am in your corner. Merry Christmas to you and yours......

  3. This is one of my pet peeves......have you ever realised how hard it is to find Christmas cards that actually say Merry Christmas on them......I for one will always say Merry Christmas to everyone....

    A Merry Christmas to you and your family Patricia!!


  4. I agree. I found cards this year that said Peace but there was no mention of season, holiday or Christmas. I'll always say Merry Christmas too (and wrote it in on my cards) cause that's what it's always been to me. I think it's reverse prejudice to make us give up our celebration but other's are allowed theirs.

  5. Love your beautiful header, thanks for putting me wise about the pond not freezing completely . I think the fish are under the pump-cottonreel
