Promise Fulfilled: Making Christmas Great Again…

During the presidential campaign, candidate Donald Trump promised to make Christmas great again, break the ridiculous ‘Happy Holiday‘ PC-ism, and support everyone saying “Merry Christmas” again.

Well, that’s another promise fulfilled:

    I heard it probably less than 5% of the time. It is a greeting with good intent and so are the rest. So is Happy Chanukkah but I do not take offense at that

      My other half is Jewish and NEVER remembers ever having Chanukah. Ever. I remember it coming into memory when I was around 12. Around 40 years ago. We both suspect it was a way for American Jewish children to be included in the celebration of the season. I know this sounds odd, but it was really never celebrated.

    I have a retail store, I told EVERY SINGLE CUSTOMER for the past two weeks “merry Christmas” and they all said it back, I’m in the south though so it’s not as big of a issue. Still usually you don’t have most people saying it out loud, they did this year though. Many of them didn’t look like Trump supporters either, they still said it.

    I’m happy to report too that I was at Toys R Us a couple days ago and they were playing religious Christmas songs, not just the Santa ones.

    it was a good start, next year though I expect all businesses to get absolutely OBNOXIOUS about it, I want nativity scenes in every major store!

  9. This is great news, Christmas is back! Unfortunately, here in ITALY, the Catholic land, signs and clerks in stores are saying BUON FESTE (Happy Holidays) and not BUON NATALE (Merry Christmas). Saddened me that I was the only one saying Buon Natale (Merry Christmas) this week and even today during our family Christmas dinner. The tree and Santa Caluse were the only remnants I saw of Christmas. Strange too especially because we don’t have muslims nor other religions here in these villages so it’s not being done “so as not to offend other religions. I would have to conclude it is the spirit and instruction that this new Pope Francis has brought to this country, secular and blurring Jesus Christ with Islam, Buddha and any number of religions that do not adore Christ. Also because this new generation is NOT religious nor even spiritual at all.

    They did have the traditional midnight Mass and daily Christmas Mass though. But the church bells were not the same nor were they like they are for the saints days.

    It’s so good to hear people in America are remembering CHRIST for Christmas.

    Jesus is the reason for the season and Jesus is the ONLY REASON for ChristMas.

    Can’t wait till I get back to USA to share CHRIST with others. Because Christ is surely not wanted in Italy anymore. It’s Mary or saints or secular.

    VERY encouraging to hear your post and others comments about the joy of saying MERRY CHRISTMAS this year though!

    The left is in a freefall right now, and it’s not just about Hillary. It’s the fact that their obsession with the destruction of America has been exposed.

    They glorified in the fact that they worked unknown behind the scenes, like the Wizard of Oz pulling the strings. now their nefarious, cultural Marxist ways are being named. Their twitter accounts trolled, their programming blocked. I absolutely love it.

    Oh yeah…Merry Christmas!!!

Couldn’t get over what seemed to be a subtle change in it suddenly be OK to say “Merry Christmas!” Glad I was there to see it.

    Something to think about. Jesus wasn’t born on Christmas (December 25th). In fact, the Bible doesn’t really give any hints as to when Jesus was born. This is likely because we aren’t meant to focus on his birth, rather on his resurrection. In any case, this particular date has many occult connections. Why is this an important battle? Why do we need to die on this particular hill?

    • Lisa Reynolds says:

      If you haven’t figured it out yet, December 25th is the day CHOSEN to celebrate Jesus’ birthday (since we don’t know the exact date), and since the liberals are opposed to Jesus, they tried to take “Christ” out of the holiday (He’s SOOOO offensive, you know) and just make it about gifts and a jolly, old, fat man. The simple act of saying “Merry Christmas” acknowledges that it is, indeed, all about Jesus and his birth (which, by the way, is crucial to His mission since He needed to become a man in order to go through that resurrection that you mention, as well as the crucifixion).

      No one appears to be dying around here, but we are happy that people are fighting back against the stupid PCisms that have been taking over. If you don’t like this “battle,” then go to a different site. Perhaps Huffington Post is more to your liking!

      P.S. I provide this overly simplistic and obvious answer to your questions because your questions seem to be quite shallow and asinine, but perhaps your are just ignorant of the facts.

        Octavian — there are biblical references to a birth around December 25th, but you need to puzzle it through.

        Mary’s cousin Elizabeth was married to Zachary, whose family’s tour of Temple duty was 21 – 28 September. While burning incense in the Temple Holy Place ( for the only time in his life), he met and quarreled with an angel about his elderly wife conceiving John the Baptist. Six months later, 21 – 28 March, the same angle informs Mary that Elizabeth is 6 months pregnant. Nine months after that, 21 – 28 December, Christ is born.

        The gospel of Luke — written as part of Paul’s appeal review in Rome — contains many details about these events and the only person who could have informed the evangelist was . . . Mary ! How often does a mother not know the date of her child’s birth?

        Hence, Merry Christmas !

        There are much more important things we could be discussing regarding the Christian faith beside the celebration of the Winter Solstice. Sorry, Christmas. I’d rather focus my energies into converting people instead of alienating them. Is it more important that everyone say “Merry Christmas” or that everyone treats each other with love and respect as our Saviour commanded?

          Octavian, saying Merry Christmas was the norm until several years ago. The Progressives are the ones who decided that Merry Christmas was offensive and set out to halt the practice. So they’re the ones who have hijacked the season and set out to make it secular when the majority celebrate Christmas and the birth of Christ. Where was your outrage when THAT was happening. We’re taking our celebration back along with our country, not to offend, but to practice our freedom of expression and freedom of religion…thank you very much.

            When it comes to Christ, it’s not “us vs them”. He died for everyone, regardless of their beliefs. Our job isn’t to make sure that everyone says merry Christmas. Our job is to show the world the character of God, so that all may decide to believe in Him. The character of God is unconditional love. Read Matthew 25 and think about how it applies to this discussion.

              I never said it was US vs THEM. My point is that saying Merry Christmas is not an US vs THEM thing, nor is it not showing unconditional love to say it. That is absurd. Following your logic, if non-believers wanted us not to preach the gospel because it offends them, then we shouldn’t do it because unconditional love. Please enlighten me on how Matthew 25 applies to this discussion.

                Look, I’m a Christian, and I believe that arguing over arbitrary holidays is counter productive to the great commission. This kind of discourse alienates people. You may belive and celebrate whatever you wish, but don’t push it on others, especially if it has no basis in the Word.

                  This isn’t a fight. There is nothing to be won by antagonizing anyone. Jesus died for all, regardless of their faith. They may not be saved in the end, but it’s our job to point them in the right direction. Fighting about this crap just isn’t the right way to go about it. Do you think Jesus would approve that we fight about how to celebrate his birthday? Do you think that maybe he has a higher calling for us instead. Love God with your whole being, and your neighbour as yourself. God is love, not hate. Any hate we have in our Christian discourse needs to be excised like a malignant tumor.

    I live in a blue state and work in a blue occupation. This last week so many people have said “Merry Christmas” instead of the politically correct Happy Holidays. It has been striking. It made me wonder about more closet Trump supporters. Recently there was a lunch conversation in which some Dems said they actually supported Trump on immigration, including immigration from terrorist hotbeds. That led to many chiming in with areas of agreement or with criticisms of the Obama administration/federal government. Merry Christmas!!!!

    My thought to anyone unwilling to say “Merry Christmas” is…. don’t you DARE get involved in any of the typical Christmastime activities! No get-togethers, no present giving or receiving, no decorating the house or putting up a tree and stockings, no songs (even the non-religious ones), no talk about Santa Claus. All that stuff is either directly or indirectly because long ago people started celebrating the birth of Jesus. I know not everyone believes he was a real person, or even if he was that he was who he was claimed to be. But if you’re SO strongly opposed to any reference to the person of Jesus, as in CHRISTmas, then you also don’t get to enjoy the cool stuff that goes along with this holiday. Not unless you wanna be a massive hypocrite.

    More Merry Christmases here in Texas. A few Happy Holidays, but I bet they’ll come around by next Christmas 🙂 I am interested to see if people were spending more this Christmas. (Due to hope and excitement for a better economy) Or maybe, some will have spent less in order to pay down or avoid debt—using Trump as an inspiration to work hard, save, & get out of debt! Merry Christmas too all who read and/or post here!

    Well, I had a very good Christmas. Our next generation after mine have grown into child bearing age and have started expanding. We have had four new arrivals in the last few years, all girls. They are really livening Christmas time up again and I am so very grateful that the sense of impending doom and hopelessness of the past decade is beginning to lift. Watching them open presents, laughing, crying, throwing food around, their wide eyes, and sense of wonder…all of it…seemed a blessing without the overwhelming fear for them, and being able to just enjoy them without that dark cloud, knowing that now there is a better chance for them to have everything my generation had, well, has made this Christmas a very, very special Christmas.
    So I can say Merry Christmas to all, and really believe it is, again, after a long, bitter nightmare.
    We have a lot of struggle ahead, but now we have a real chance again.
    LOL So my Christmas was very noisy and messy and I loved every minute of it this year.
