Making Christmas Merry Again

It’s refreshing to have a president who avoids political correctness by acknowledging the reason for the season.

Now that the Grinch (read: Barack Obama) is no longer in the White House, the phrase Merry Christmas is fashionable again. The last administration took a politically correct approach to the celebration of Christ’s birth, namely by refusing to promote the word Christmas whenever possible. He used the phrase in speeches, but that was the extent to which he communicated it.

As Gary Bauer reports, “For eight years, Barack and Michelle Obama were unable to bring themselves to use those words. There were ‘season’s greetings’ and ‘happy holidays,’ but ‘Merry Christmas’ never made it on the Christmas card.” Tony Perkins notes too that Obama “famously wanted a ‘non-religious Christmas’” and even attempted to purge from the White House a nativity scene that has been customary there for half a century. Enter Donald Trump.

A year ago, the incoming president pledged, “We’re going to start saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.” And he’s certainly staying true to his word. This year’s Christmas card and the White House in general are devoid of any political correctness. The card unashamedly wishes everyone a Merry Christmas and the White House decorations are truly something to behold. Having a president who acknowledges the reason for the season is one of the many reasons America is finally optimistic again.
