Merry Christmas!

If you are not a Christian and you took offense I respectfully ask you to reconsider. I grew up in the Soviet Union where you could get expelled from school, dishonorably discharged from the army officer's corps, or put an end to your career for wishing someone a merry Christmas. Christmas celebrations were supplanted with "New Year" celebrations to keep God out of our lives.

Today, every time I hear lame and toothless "Happy holidays!" or I wish someone a merry Christmas and get a look, I feel like I am back in the USSR. The Big Brother is watching.

If you do not believe in the Christian God, at least have the cheer to celebrate the freedom of religion—or lack of thereof—and the freedom of speech we still enjoy in America.

Merry Christmas and God bless America!
