    It will always be Merry Christmas for me. Despite the grumblings of a small group of people, Jesus IS the reason for this season. How sad for anyone to think differently.

    Its all in the word Christ Mass. That is why it should be merry Christmas because it is a celebration of the birth of Christ. Period
