The War On Christmas
Red and green Starbucks cups, saying “happy holidays,” and the possibility that Santa could be a woman have been some of the subjects of petty debates over the so-called “War on Christmas.” Although no one seems to have actually declared war on Christmas – or suggested that it shouldn’t be celebrated, the concept of a war on Christmas is based on the conservative idea “triggered SJW‘s” are threatening the integrity and popularity of the holiday.
PSA: Santa is a man. Baby It’s Cold Outside is a jam. Rudolph is a Christmas classic. Stop searching for things to be offended by and definitely stop trying to ruin Christmas. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
