I Agree with Donald Trump, that if someone of the Christain fath wants you to greet them with Merry Christmas rather than Happy Holidays ,Thats ok with me, However as a person of the Jewish Faith, I don’t to want to be greeted by people who knows me with Merry Christmas, say Happy Hanukuah Or Good Yontiff or Happy Holiday will suffice . If some stranger on the street is to greet me and doesn’t know my background A” Happy Holidays” Is in order. I always greet someone I know is Christain with Merry Christmas ,but not knowing someones background ..Happy Holiday will do for me .
I remember when I was growing up in the 1950’s we learned Christmas songs in Assembly from Sept . to Dec .in Scholl , the Mainstreets were always decorated for Christmas and every T.V.show had a Christmas theme or show as well as music on all radio stations, it was as if all year I was an American and was an allien for a month and a half from late Nov. to New Years . I felt that the generic greeting Happy Holidays ended that. I Agree.. Trump is Not Anti Jewish His daughter married one and he is a true freind of Isreal , having said that I’ll end with this statement below…
TODAY WITH THE INCLUSION HANUKKAH IN THE ‘HOLIDAY SEASON” MAKES ME FEEL GOOD THAT NO JEW IN AMERICA WILL BE ALIENATED ONCE AGAIN, EVEN THOU HANUKKAH IS NOT THE MOST HOLIEST OF HOLIDAYS IT PLAYS A PARAMOUNT IMPORTANCE TO JEWS IN TODAYS SOCIETY..END
