Like Paul, I too have started posts on this subject and thrown them away.
I think its sad that people get offended when clearly no offence was intended.
Perhaps someone should talk to Hilary Clinton (and similar) about ramming
PC'ness down peoples throats. In the end they get so sick of being told that
you _must_ not say this or you _should_ say that that in the end the opposite
happens. Far better to _educate_ than to _legislate_.
(No political discussion please!)
I dont care what colour people are.
what creed/religion/faith people follow (if any).
what country they live in.
Its funny you know _ALL_ people are the same underneath and we should say thanks
for the little things that make us different not try to sanitise by making us
all the same.
I try to accept people as they come to me. If they wish intelligent conversation
so much the better. If they just want to bleat and moan to me for wishing them
a "Happy Christmas" its their loss 'cause no offence is intended.
All I want to do is wish all people reading this the Best Wishes of the Season
where ever you may be. What ever Season you acknowledge at this time of year.
For me and my family its Christmas! We celebrate the birth of Jesus at this
time. You may be different thats your right.
Good luck to you all.
