I have lived here for three years now and I guess I am a little slow, but I finally do get it. You don't like Christians and you don't like Christmas.
The annual crop of anti-Christmas letters published in The Olympian and the anti-Christmas spirit that I encountered as I was doing my Christmas shopping have finally convinced me.
I am glad that we live in a country where we have freedom of speech and freedom of religion and that no one has to say “Merry Christmas” or celebrate it if they don’t want to but I also have the freedom to decide where I want do my Christmas shopping.
I spent about $2,000 in Olympia this year but next year I will be doing all of my shopping on-line at stores where Christmas is still celebrated.
Never miss a local story.
So to all of the merchants and stores of Olympia, one more time, Merry Christmas and farewell.
