A little Christmas spirit

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Gary Ziolkowski. (Your Views, Nov. 20)

Why all the mean-spirited rhetoric about liberals and Christmas? Almost seems like you are on some kind of auto-response but I’m truly grateful that people like you have the right to express your batwack opinions.

I’m a liberal Democrat and the idea of Christmas, Jesus and the Christian religions are not offensive to me.

It appears you have imagined situations with which you vehemently disagree. Do you continually look for reasons to be offended? Seems like a real waste of time and energy to me. The brush you are using to paint your prejudices cannot get any wider.

I must admit I have the urge to vomit when I see so many Christians breaking their legs to buy so much STUFF to celebrate Christmas that stores are now open on Thanksgiving. Gary, your ideas are yours and as long as you don’t foist them on me and mine everything is great.

I truly hope you and yours have a Merry Christmas and a safe New Year.

Stanley Holmes
