Holiday is still Christmas Day

Why are we no longer permitted to celebrate Christmas?

Dear Editor:

Why are we no longer permitted to celebrate Christmas?

Walking through Summerland, we are smothered by signs wishing us “Season’s Greetings.”

There are four seasons in the year, and yet we do not see banners welcoming the spring, summer or fall.

Dec. 25 celebrates the birth of Christ, which is why that day is still called Christmas Day.

Canada was founded by Christians, and hence why we ask God to keep our land glorious and free.

What happened to that freedom?

What right does the council have to decide that we are not to wish neighbours a Merry Christmas?

It is a time of celebration and joy and should be embraced.  Jesus is the reason for the season.
