I was astounded this morning to find a placard placed in front of the East Bay Street United States’ Post Office in Charleston, South Carolina which reads “Merry Christmas.”
What a surprise! The United States Post Office, “a branch of the United States federal government,” (as the young lawyer says to the judge in the movie “Miracle on 34th Street”) recognizing the reason for the season. I wonder if the Postmaster put the sign near the front steps of this large post office, or perhaps one of the postal workers thought it’d be nice to say “Merry Christmas!” to the customers.
At any rate, how wonderful it was this morning not to read “Happy Holidays!”
