maybe one little thing i am ungrateful for...

why is this so difficult?


ok. this is driving me bonkers. so i'm trying to select my christmas correspondence. there are so many beautiful cards out there to choose from. and then i open them up. happy holidays. BLURG!! this is one of my biggest pet peeves.


trust me, i am about as bleeding heart, loosey-goosey, liberal as they come, but seriously, people. i have friends from many different religious backgrounds. some who celebrate christmas, some who celebrate hanukkah, some who don't celebrate anything at all, other than a season of delicious peppermint-flavored drinks at starbucks. and you know what? i would not be the least bit offended if i got a card wishing me a happy hanukkah or happy kwanzaa. you know why? because that is what THEY are celebrating and they're simply sharing the joy of their personal holiday and beliefs? me? I am celebrating christmas. so I want to send cards that say merry christmas.


is this too much to ask for? you know what really kills me? the cards that have CHRISTMAS trees on them and still say happy holidays. better yet, hallmark makes a set of cards with the nativity scene on the front that STILL says happy holidays on the inside.

please, i am begging you, makers of adorable letterpress cards that i reallllllllly want to buy, MAKE SOMETHING THAT SAYS CHRISTMAS ON IT!

I totally agree with you! The 'Happy Holidays' thing really gets under my skin! I've had to pass up so many cute Christmas cards because of that! So annoying!

I agree. How do you take the reason for the season away? Sometimes I feel that this Politically Correct movement is too much!!!!

I used to be the exact same way about Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. My husband, who is Jewish and I will be celebrating both Christmas and Hanukkah this year. We will be using "Happy Holidays" for our cards. Since we will celebrate both holidays and will be sending our card to family and friends who are celebrating both, it's a happy compromise. Although we did seriously consider doing two seperate cards. I hope you find the perfect Chirstmas correspondence! I've had fun finding mine!

So true! This politically correct mumbo-jumbo drives me insane when it comes to Christmas cards. I respect whatever it is that you are celebrating. But give me a card that says 'Christmas' please!

By the way, I just found your blog and adore it! Have a fabulous night, lady! xoxo

This is actually one of my pet peeves as well. It takes away the whole meaning of Christmas for crying out loud!
