The Rockefeller Christmas Tree lighting ceremony that occurs every single year in Manhattan has attracted more visitors this year than in many previous years. As well, if you happened to have shopped in the largest retailer in the world, you may have noticed that the Christmas this year is much more traditional and Christian. In the past, only carols were played, while Christmas hymns were completely ignored.
There is also a difference in the ways that Americans are treating those who throw Christmas under the bus. For instance, another giant retailer, very popular with the Libs, but recently under a ton of criticism about bathroom privileges by men and little girls, and which has seen a slew of closures, has for the past decade featured commercials that SOUND very Christmas-y, but neither display or show any sort of indication that the “holiday” is anything associated with Jesus Christ or Christianity.
Finally, a president who has come into office promising that there will be a lot less political correctness in the White House has recently been approached to be more “inclusive” in his approach to the Christmas season. They suggest that he say “Happy Holidays” so as not to offend people of other faiths. President Trump had two words for them: “Merry Christmas!”
When then-candidate Donald Trump was running for office, he repeatedly promised to end the “War on Christmas” — a secular push from the left to remove “Christ” from the Christmas season.
Now that President Trump is in the White House, it is obvious that he and his family have brought the Christmas spirit with them, as evidenced by the gorgeous manner in which first lady Melania Trump directed “The People’s House” be decorated, according to The Washington Post.
One small — but telling — piece of evidence signaling the return of Christmas that has conservatives and Christians cheering is the official White House Christmas card: It contains a rather noticeable difference from that of Trump’s predecessor, former President Barack Obama.
As BizPac Review noted, the card from Trump’s family wishes recipients a “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
By contrast, Obama’s final card in 2016 contained the generic “Happy Holidays” greeting.
How many times did Trump promise the American people that “We’re going to start saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again!”? Chalk this up to yet another promise kept.
Where Trump and Obama didn’t differ, though, was with the inclusion of their children on the card. Both Sasha and Malia Obamas’ signatures were included on the Obama family card, and Barron Trump’s signature is included on the Trump family card.
The president has made no bones about his aversion to staunch political correctness. Like many other Americans, he saw the increasing use of “Happy Holidays” in lieu of “Merry Christmas” as one of the worst examples of PC culture.
With the end of a dismal eight years of generic holidays, generic transparency, generic sincerity, and generic responsibility, it certainly feels good to celebrate political correctness on hiatus. If God is even more giving, we’ll see a permanent end to that foolishness.
In the meantime, the Trumps are making good on their promise to bring American values back to the White House and his supporters very much appreciate the efforts he’s making on our behalf. We wish the First Family the Merriest Christmas and the Happiest New Year!
