>Lighten up.

8 Dec

>

People get offended so easily. Religion, politics, heritage, what have you. Lately, the thing that’s been bugging me is when people who consider themselves to be pagan make it a HUGE deal when you wish them a Merry Christmas.

Now, I follow a pagan/nature based path. I celebrate Yule. But I also celebrate Christmas. The holiday season is much more than what you choose to call it. It’s a time of family, friendship, and spreading the message of love and peace. Aren’t those universal? Is it necessary to correct someone on the details of you religious beliefs when all they are doing is wishing you well? Now, I know this doesnt not apply to all people. But for those few, lighten up, will ya?
