Never like this year the ‘politically correct’ has had its way over Christmas cards that ordinary people and influential people exchanged for the season.
But it seems that the secret code for this season was to get as unreligious as possible. Basically, it is like Christmas wasn’t a Christian even but just something that Coca Cola invented. It seems like it is convenient or not recommeded to expose it if you believe in something. But why is that? And more importantly, why should it be like that?
The European Union Christmas card looks like a sort of Independence day poster with no referral the Nativity whilst the US President’s depicts his dog by the fireplace. Is it Christmas or what?! Why should we get rid of our roots?
Wouldn’t it be probably better to exchange two type of cards: a religiuos one for the believers and a secular one for those who don’t?
And I don’t buy the justifications that this way we do not offend those that have other creeds.
I’m not offended if anyone follows his/her faith, I just don’t see why I should get rid of mine!
