Thanks for the Christmas wishes

On television over the weekend I saw two Walmart ads, and each used the word “Christmas.” To this I want to say: thank you!

I am tired of the loud minority taking away my Christmas. I believe that the majority of Americans are still Christian and also have freedoms, including the freedom of religion. We are told that employees in retail stores cannot say “Merry Christmas” as it insults people. Well, “Happy Holiday” insults me. It is Christmas. End of story.
