In a recent ‘Letter to the Editor’ in the Washington Post the writer states that after seven years, he was able to convince his supervisors at the Dept. of Vet. Affairs that the annual “Christmas Party” should be a “Holiday Party.”
I’m sick and tired of Atheists and members of other Religions attempting to change Christian Holidays into holidays void of any religious connotations. Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ. You cannot change that no matter how much you try. Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Christ and you cannot change that.
Can any of you give me a reasoned response as to why a celebration that is centered around Christ should not be so named. And why are you not clamoring to change Ramadan to holiday or Rosh Hashanah to holiday. Each year, the White House hosts a celebration of Eid ul-Fitr or the ending of Ramadan. Why no clamoring to change that to some neutral name? I’ll wait for an answer.
