The War on Christmas

With Christmas just around the corner, there have been uproars in Christian circles about “the war on Christmas.” On the one hand, some perceive a war on Christmas as being society’s intolerance of saying “Merry Christmas.” Society demands that we say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” since the latter can be offensive to those…
