What holiday are people celebrating?

Published: December 14, 2012

When I get a “holiday” card instead of a Christmas card, I respond with a Christmas card. For me, a Catholic, the “holiday” is Christmas. A “holiday” card doesn't mean anything to a Christian. When I was growing up, my family would celebrate Christmas by first going to Midnight Mass. We always remembered the “reason for the season.”

Atheists, the ACLU and secularists want to do away with Christmas; some Christians are unwittingly falling into the trap by promoting “holiday” cards or wishing everyone a “Happy Holiday!” What holiday are they celebrating?
