dear ms b-christmas 1


ms b
we want to wish you a merry christmas
your first one
now wait a minute
is it being politically correct to wish you a
merry christmas
now i cant find the rules for what to do
i know if i say happy holidays
thats ok
i dont feel like that has the same connotation
merry christmas does

it just make me feel better
to say
merry christmas to you

i will admit that i will use happy holidays sometimes
if im speaking to someone im not sure if they
would be offended by
merry christmas

now i had a lot of patients
ms b
that were not christians
they were agnostics atheists muslims hindus Buddhists jewish
i noticed that they especially their kids still sort of
celebrated christmas

for some its a secular holiday
others its not
it means a time to be with family and friends
to exchangegifts with loved ones
a holiday maybe the best one

so ms b
merry christmas to you
i know you will be loving all those decorations
all those lights
lots of twinkling blinking shiny starry lights

just wait
next year
you can grab hold of them
play with all the wrapping paper
maybe really enjoy the gifts
lets dont do too many

now ms b
be sure
each year to give back to those not as lucky as we are
thats a gift that may be the best you can give

enjoy this first one
they only get better

that santa thing
well we will leave that up to your mom and dad
