Let the “Political Correctness” Begin…

If memory serves me correctly…stuff really hit the fan about three years ago over whether or not to say Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas.  Remember?  It was when Wal-Mart decided not to put up Christmas signs in it’s stores…instead replacing them with the word Holiday.  In an effort to be “politically correct” by catering to its diverse customer base, the nation’s number one retailer was blasted and set off a public firestorm.

That debate continues even this year.   A viewer has brought it up already.

I WATCH WDBJ 7 EVERY MORNING AT 5:30 AND ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO IT.  HOWEVER, IT IS GETTING CLOSE TO CHRISTMAS, AND THE ONLY COMPLAINT I HAVE IS …YOU, LIKE OTHER “POLITICALLY CORRECT” PEOPLE ARE REFUSING TO USE THE WORD “CHRISTMAS”.. IT’S “HOLIDAY”.  PLEASE KEEP CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS!!

I suspect the debate is far from over especially as our country continues to embrace diversity.  I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!

  1. You should be able to say Merry Christmas.
    After all it isn’t Holiday it is Christmas day
    and it is the birth of Christ. Everybody
    should know Christ no matter what you
    call him.

  2. Ms. Davis ,
    Thank you for being so open and honest
    in your blogs. I really appreciate the fact
    that you tell things as you see them and
    stand for what you believe. Thank you
    again so very much and by the way…
    Merry Christmas.
