Happy Holidays !

Stamp: Happy Holidays by FantasyStockAvatars 

Happy Holidays by PersnicketeseHappy Yule Stamp by DestinyfallStamp: Commission - Sorry, Jesus ain't it! by 8manderz8
Happy Holidays Folks 
Yes I say Happy Holidays. Now that the War on Christmas is starting I would like to explain why.  
There are four different reasons to use Happy Holidays:
  1. "Happy Holiday", an English translation of the Hebrew Hag Sameach greeting on Passover, Sukkot, and Shavuot.
  2. "Happy Holiday", a substitution for "Merry Christmas".
  3. "Happy Holidays", a collective and inclusive wish for the period encompassing many holidays 
  4. "Happy Holidays", a shortened form of the greeting "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."
I use it mostly for 3 and 4 , not 2. I say Merry Christmas to those I know who celebrate it either in a secular form or a religious form, this would include my family and a few friends.  
But mostly I say Happy Holidays because of reason 3.  No, that is not an attack on your faith or religion, this phrase does not make you a victim. 
IT IS HOWEVER an attack on this "Christian Nation"
Here is why, all the following Holidays take place in December (except for 1) and are celebrated by some portion of the population in the USA: 

    1.     New Years Eve/ Day (Cultural / Secular)

    2.     Christmas (Christian / Secular) [ My opinion is there are two Christmases Religious and Secular you can celebrate one and not the other, or both]

    3.     Hanukkah (Jewish)

    4.     Midwinter (Neo-Pagan /Cultural)

    5.     Winter Solstice ( Seasonal/ Cultural/ Pagan/ Leveyan Satanist)

    6.     Bodhi Day (Buddhist)

    7.     Pancha Gana Pati (Hindu)

    8.     Diwali (Hindu) [ This is the only Holiday I included not in December, I included it because it is importance to Hindus]

    9.     Yalda (Iranian )

    10.   Modranint (Anglo-Saxon Neo-Paganism)

    11.   Soyal (Hopi / Zuni)

    12.   Saturnilia (Nova Roma / Roman Neo-Pagnaism)

    13.   Yule (Wiccan / Neo-Pagan / European Cultural)

    14.   Kwanzaa ( Pan-African Cultural)

    15.   Yuleblot (Germanic Neo-Paganism / Asatru)

    16.   Tsameliea (Bowynn)

    17.   Alban Arthan (Druid)

    18.   Ziemassvetki (Romura / Lituanian Neo-Paganism)

    19.   Chalica (Unitarian Universalism)

    20.   HumanLight ( Secular Humanist )

    21.   Festivus ( Seinfeld/ Secular)

    22.   Newtonmas ( Atheist / Freethinking )
    
    23. Kwanzaa (Pan-Africa/ Black Cultural) 


My dorm hall has both decorations for Hanukkah and Christmas and our school is even having a Yalda Night, I bet there will be other celebrations for some other holidays as well~ 

The United States of America has one of the most diverse populations in the world. It is time for us to recognize this. 

Jesus is not the reason for the season, he is the reason for Christmas ....period. The majority of these holidays revolve around the winter solstice or a new year, so if anything those are the reason for the season. 

But really? Does the season need a reason ? 

Stop making it OVERLY political: It is A BUNCH of holidays all clumped together during a miserable time (sorry winter lovers) of the year that bring joy, family, friends, food, charity giving, and so on. Wish your Christian friends a Merry Christmas, your Jewish friends a Happy Hanukkah , and your Wiccan friends a Happy Yule.  

Or you can wish us all a Happy Holidays, because many of us celebrate more then one ;) (Wink)

:bulletpink:Religious Views: Eclectic Polytheist Mini Septagram by MadamMichi
For Information Eclectic Polytheist- My Religion
     I have taken down a majority of my journals because I am creating a “blog” here on deviantArt. I am still in the process of making this, and the first entries will be more properly edited and reviewed versions of my journals as well as some already written but unpublished entries. But because I don’t have my journals about my religion up I have recently got a lot of questions about what my religion is. So I’m just going to type this up real quick. I am not Wiccan and I do not really consider myself a Neo-Pagan really, though some may still label me as such. On to the explanation: 
    
    I am an Eclectic Polytheist. My religion, tradition, faith is of my own creation. I have taken from many sources and developed my own way to pray, do ritual, and so on. And am still developing my own ideas and practices.
     
    I am a “hard” polytheist.

RULEZ BOX





:bulletorange: Rules and Regulations :bulletorange:

:bulletpink: I am setting out these rules because they have become necessary. I write about and upload many “controversial” things. I want people to feel safe. If I have an LGBT supportive art piece I do not need those struggling to accept themselves seeing negative hurtful comments.

-------------------------------------------------------

:bulletblack: These rules apply to all comments on my page, deviations, and journals.
:bulletblack: If you break them you will be given one warning
:bulletblack: If you break them a second time (or leave multiple rule-breaking comments at once) you will be blocked.

--------------------------------------------------------

:bulletred: Be respectful to people. Seriously just use some common sense.
:bulletred: This is a NO PROSELYTIZING ZONE. Meaning: No attempted conversions. No Preaching. No Harassment for religion views or lack thereof. This rule applies to Christians , Atheists, Pagans and everyone else.
:bulletred: This is an LGBT SAFE ZONE. No gay/bi/trans bashing , no bigoted opinions, do not compare LGBT to pedophiles, do not claim all LGBT where abused.
My deviations and journals are not meant for debates about whether being gay is a sin or if transgender/ nonbinary people exist. If you wish to “debate” such things please take it to the forums.
:bulletred: No insulting of me , someone else who commented , a third person, or a group of people as a whole.
:bulletred: No threatening of me , someone else who commented , a third person, or a group of people as a whole.

--------------------------------------------------------

:bulletgreen: Please do share thoughts and opinions especially if they are teaching me something new!


If I wrote about my personal religion/faith what would you like to hear about?
