Being Politically Correct

Dear Diary,

Well, this is it for me.  My last entry for the year 2007.  I'm going to take off the rest of the year to let my creative juices refill.  However, I will probably send you some Twitter updates here and there so you don't feel completely left out.

Before I go though, I want to share one last thought with you: how to be PC during Christmas.  I've seen a lot of people exchanging gifts, sending cards, and wishing each other a Merry Christmas...or is it, Happy Holidays?  Oh, wait, sorry you're a Season's Greetings person.  It's funny listening to everyone trying to guess what the other person would say during Christmas.

Here's a thought.  Instead of being overly sensitive to the other person, why don't you say what you believe and then let that person be sensitive to you, by not correcting you.  And then, vice versa, you return the favor when they say something else.  For example, if you say Merry Christmas then say it and let the other person respond back Happy Holidays, if they want to.

So with that, I'm going to continue saying Merry Christmas...but with a twist.  It should be fun (for me) to watch other people's reactions.  Have a good vacation, Diary.

Oh, and Happy Baby-Jesus'-Birthday!

When you say you're going to say Merry Christmas with a twist, do you mean you're going to add a jig to the mix. If so, will you please come by and wish me Merry Christmas? I could use a good laugh.

Merry Christmas, Mattrix & Family!
