Texas Official May Slap You If You Wish Him ‘Happy Holidays’
Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is warning you what could happen if you tell him “Happy holidays.”
Miller wrote on Facebook on Dec. 16: “If one more person says Happy Holidays to me I just might slap them. Either tell me Merry Christmas or just don’t say anything.”
The posting included a picture of a cowboy underneath sign that reads: “We will never take the Christ out of Christmas.”
However, there is no mention of the fact that “Christmas” never appears in the Bible, nor does any holiday celebrate Jesus’ birth in the Good Book.
Undeterred by facts and numerous negative commenters, Miller wrote on Dec. 17: “Good morning my friends. I hope your day is off to a great start. We are just a few days away from welcoming the birth of our savior. As we prepare for Christmas and the joy that accompanies it, I pray that you will thank God for the blessings that come with living in ‘one nation under God.’ Merry Christmas and may God bless you, your family, our great state, and the United States of America.”
