Want to express your objection to all the current attempts to take Christ out of Christmas? It will cost you $0.94 and a few minutes of your time.
Send a Christmas card to the ACLU. You can buy 2 card for a dollar at the Dollar Store. make sure it says Merry Christmas. Tell them there is no such thing as a holiday tree. That it has always been a Christmas Tree, it is a Christmas Tree, and it will always be a Christmas Tree.
Can you imagine the consternation this will cause at their headquarters if they receive thousands of cards? They will take the time to open them all, there may be a donation in one of them.
Please send cards to: ACLU, 125 broad street, 18th floor, New York, NY 10004
Just to be clear, this is not an attempt to denigrate anyone else's religion, it's an attempt to ask politely that mine not be maligned or altered against my wishes. That my freedom of religion be respected and I be allowed to celebrate one of my religion's most Holy days without feeling like I need to hide it's name or change it's meaning.
I am sending them well wishes for a Merry Christmas. My hope is one person there is positively affected by this and better understands the reason for the season. If that happens, my $0.94 was spent very wisely.
