Letter: Happy holidays
December 31, 2012, 05:00 AM
Editor,

Regarding the letter of James Quinn published in the Dec. 24 edition of the Daily Journal concerning the "skirmish” o’er the word "Christmas,” the good Mr. Quinn may wish to consider the fact that, in our multicultural society, not everyone celebrates Christmas or indeed believes in Christianity. Yesterday, I automatically wished a bus driver "Happy Christmas,” and he didn’t respond. When I caught myself a moment later and amended my words to "Happy Holidays,” a big smile spread o’er the man’s face, and he responded in kind. Let’s be sensitive to our multicultural community and not assume that everyone follows the same religion or observes the same holidays. Happy holidays to everyone, whatever you celebrate!
