Quoting Miss Voorhees:" These things are ALL over my Facebook. Please discuss how stupid they are. I want to comment on one ... [snip!] ... status!! I AM A PROUD CANADIAN CITIZEN... MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR !! Do you have what it takes to repost this"
I think things likes this are ridiculous. For one my ancestors arrived in the 1640's so im pretty sure you can say ive been here long enough. and second of all, i never celabrated xmas before meeting my SO. not that id get pissed if someone told me merry xmas, but i understand that not everyone celebrates the holiday and having a phrase such as have a happy winter is much more useful and you dont risk pissing off anyone. But these things are stupid and to be honest I always thought Canada was proud to be a land of welcome to anyone in the world, a place that accepts everyone as equal and treats difference with respect. This status is tacky and goes against what I believe Canada should be.
