The War on Christmas: Lessons from Dr. Seuss

“This is the lesson we should be teaching our kids; Grinches and Scrooges live in our lives. They can tear down our Christmas trees and replace “Merry Christmas” with “Happy Holidays” but they can’t take away the warmth the season brings to those who celebrate it.”

Easily the best article in the series “The War on Christmas” I wrote. We worry too much about what other people do, think and believe when we should be focusing on the joy of the holidays.

  1. “They can tear down our Christmas trees and replace “Merry Christmas” with “Happy Holidays””

    So we’re supposedly tearing down a symbol of winter celebration that predates Christianity and replacing a salutation with another that includes the first one? How is that supposed to work?

    1. NotAScientist, I’m not sure you got what I was saying. Did you even read the attached article? My point is in reference to requests by certain factions to replace the term “Christmas tree” with “holiday tree,” as well as requests to replace “Merry Christmas” with “Happy Holidays.” The supposed “War on Christmas” has Christians worrying about the secularization of the holiday and non-believers pushing for the removal of any references to Christmas (even the non-religious ones like a Christmas tree and Santa) from public places. In the attached article, I discuss how believers shouldn’t let the objectors ruin their Christmas since Christmas isn’t about the tree or decorations or anything else of that nature. It goes beyond that as demonstrated in Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” Sorry you missed the point.
