Merry Christmas

That's right Merry Christmas.
Not 'happy holiday' or any other Americanised or PC bullshit.
Christmas in this country is (or at least should be) the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ - even though this midwinter celebration was originally a pagan festival (which is where Father Christmas/Santa Claus originated from) but was hijacked by the Christians when they outlawed paganism and moved their own Christmas festival from the summer to the end of December to replace the aforementioned and popular Pagan festival at that date.

Anyhow, nowadays in this country, Christmas (whatever it's original meaning and origin) is Christmas - not 'the holidays'.

So whether you want to celebrate the birth of Christ or Santa Claus or both - celebrate - before the PC brigade or the radical Muslims ban it, so-

Merry Christmas!
