Okay, how many of you have ever received a card from a business that said
How did you feel about it?
Did you just ignore it?
Did it upset you?
Or did you notice it at all?
I used to get upset -
that is until today.
You see, I was reading a letter to the editor of our "local" paper.
The writer of this letter was ranting about a car dealership that had sent him a card that said "Happy Holidays"

known as Christmas.
When I send a Christmas Card I am
acknowledging the fact that I
am a Christian.
I say "Merry Christmas" to people on the street
and in stores.
We have a Christmas tree in our house.
So, what is the point to this post?
The next time you receive a card from a company,
and it says
don't get upset.
isn't that what
would want us to do?
