>The Holiday Season

>My husband brought up a news story about a woman who was going out of her way to say “Merry Christmas” to people at stores in order to see what they replied. My mom responded that she was going to say “Merry Christmas” to people, and she doesn’t care what religion they are. See, I think that’s just rude. Of course, it would help if people wore buttons that indicated what holiday(s) they celebrate. If someone is wearing a Christmas Tree pin or sweater, I feel confident in saying “Merry Christmas.” If someone says “Happy Holidays” to me, I appreciate the sentiment. Heck, I’m happy if my sales clerk thanks me for my business or asks me to come back again, rather than just grunting and moving on to the next customer.

About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have three cats and a husband.
