What’s wrong with Christmas decorations?
I don’t intend for this post to be rude or ignorant, but genuinely curious. What is the huff about Christmas decorations?
This is Canada, and we’ve always done the Christmas decorations at public places or malls or schools. But now people are “offended”. Why?
Christmas is hardly about Jesus for the greater community anymore, it’s more about holiday time, family, friends, and happiness. So I’m wondering, if a person immigrates here, to Canada, why are you so angry about seeing a Christmas tree up with beautiful decorations? Again leaving out religion, just beautiful decorations. For example, if I even visited India or Dubai or Saudi Arabia, I would be expected to adapt to their values (ie, dress conservatively or wear a hijab, whatever the case). I just don’t understand why people come here then complain about the country they’re joining.
Same thing with Merry Christmas, why not just say merry Christmas back or happy hannukah/kwanza/holiday/whatever. What’s the issue?
Please help me understand what is so “offensive” about Christmas decorations or merry Christmas.
