Yesterday a senior bureaucrat in Ottawa sent out a directive to banish tinsel, trees and holiday wreathes from front-line  Service Canada offices across Quebec.  After a firestorm of criticism for this down-grading of Christmas, a minister in the Harper government rescinded the directive. The move makes Santa safe for another year.

A union official commented:  « We have trouble in Quebec with handling Christmas.  As a society, we’re struggling to figure out how to deal with reasonable accomodation of minorities. »

This raises another question.  Is it still politically correct to wish some one a « Merry Christmas. »  For reasons I don’t totally understand, I am drifting to using « Happy holidays. »  Is there something the matter with me?

Is « Merry Christmas » still politically correct?

What do you think?
