During his “Thank You Tour” stop in Michigan, President-elect Donald Trump didn’t skimp out on the little details in his plan to “make America great again.”
Along with the many things Trump has promised, he has added the old complaint that saying “Merry Christmas” is going to be the greeting you hear most during the holiday season.
“And Merry Christmas everybody! Merry Christmas. Right? Merry Christmas,” said Trump as the crowd cheered. “They reminded me. We’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again.”
The crowd let Trump know they approved of this very loudly.
“How about all those department stores?” Trump continued. “They have the bells, and they have the red walls, and they have the snow, but they don’t have “Merry Christmas.” I think they’re going to start putting up “Merry Christmas.”

The “war on Christmas” has been a fear amongst many in America for some time. For instance the ACLU has claimed that nativity scenes in public places is a violation of the Constitution, and thus has attempted in the past to force places like courthouses to remove these displays. Even Google, which recognizes the Islamic holiday of Ramadan, has been known to not recognize Christmas as the religious holiday it is, choosing instead to post pictures of toys.
Despite these glaring attacks or dismissals, some h0ld that the war on Christmas is a fabrication created by Fox News.
That Trump is assuming office, Christians and Christmas lovers everywhere, are likely pleased to hear that the holiday will be venerated as they see fit.
