Good. I'm Glad To See This

Christians protest actions that play down Christmas' religious nature:
"Christians and traditionalists across the nation, fed up with what they view as the de-emphasizing of Christmas as a religious holiday, are filing lawsuits, promoting boycotts and launching campaigns aimed at restoring references to Christ in seasonal celebrations."
Turnabout is fair play, right? I'm sick of all this PC bullshit and am glad Christians are getting that way too. The reason the holiday was invented was to celebrate the birth of Christ. It wasn't invented as a way to celebrate Santa Claus.
Since the population has been predominantly Christian for the last few hundred years, Christians have been the ones celebrating it. If you're not Christian, you don't have to recognize Christ. That's your option. Just don't try to force another Christian to do the same.
There's nothing wrong with celebrating other religious events around the same time. A 'Holiday' party is great idea. Include everyone. In fact, don't make it a religious event. Make it a company event or a communal event. Make it a special event for everyone at that time of year. It's the end of the year, a good time to reflect on accomplishments of the prior year and recognize people for doing a job well done, and remember family, friends or even not so familiar associates in your lives you don't see on a regular basis.
Just don't try to hide or eliminate the actual reason the holiday was here in the first place, and don't try to force me to do the same.
