“Merry Christmas” and “a happy New Year”
During this period I receive/read many publications from many friends wishing me/us a “Merry Christmas” and “a happy New Year”, which is very kind of you. And I really thank you for taking the time and being so kind!
This is always a strange time to me because I don't reply with the same type of wishes, and I can feel your disappointment... That happens because we don't celebrate Christmas. So, I try to answer as politely as I can, in order not to hurt anyone's feelings. I really would hate if my words would cause that to anybody!
But I feel that some of you feel strange about this... How can he be Christian and not celebrate Christmas?, I almost hear you ask yourselves! And that is a legitimate question.
Well, let me try to explain this in a simple way.
