Editorial: Happy Holidays

Posted: Updated:

Happy Holidays! When I say Happy Holidays to some people they think I am ignoring Christmas and trying to just be politically correct. That couldn't be any further from the truth. I really mean Happy Holidays and that certainly includes Christmas.

As many of you know there are a number of holidays that are celebrated in December and January. Here is a list and you may celebrate more than one:

Christmas: The most widely celebrated holiday in the United States which celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ.

Hanukkah: The Jewish holiday that precedes Christmas and commemorates the rededication of the temple in Jerusalem after it was ransacked by the ruling Syrian/Greek regime.

Yule fest: Another name for the Winter Solstice

Kwanzaa: A non-religious African American holiday celebrating family and community.

So when I say Happy Holidays I really mean it and I mean it for all of the many people that I know who may be celebrating one or more of these holidays.

On behalf of my colleagues at WSFA 12 News I want to wish you Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
