DISCUSSION: Political Correctness and the Holidays

It seems like every year around the holidays’ people find something to be outraged about. It has gotten to the point where I’m desensitized to it.

I’ve noticed that there’s been outrage around the classic Christmas cartoons Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. They’re old cartoons. Of course, this shows how much society and our culture has changed. Does this mean we should suppress it? I don’t think so.

I think we should use these classic cartoons as a teaching moment for the kids. Explain that these are classics and they’re old. Teach them whatever you don’t agree about the program, but also show them how simple and happy the cartoons are.

I believe political correctness will become a problem when we start using it to delete the past. We should be able to learn from our mistakes, not try to hide them. History is important to any culture, and to see it disappear saddens me.

I am not a Social Justice Warrior by any means, but I do have a small handful of causes I stand up for. None of which involve trying to ban classic holiday cartoons and classic Christmas songs. Let the holidays be fun, save the Social Justice Warrior stuff for the upcoming year.

I will have two more book review going up and then I will be taking a break for the holidays.

I will continue to post about various things, but no book reviews until January.

I hope everyone understands and I just want to say, this year has been fantastic! I am looking forward to reviewing my favorite books I’ve read over the year and to share more with you!

Thanks for the love and support!

DISCUSSION: Christmas is Upon Us

Thanksgiving is over, and Christmas is less than a month away. With the upcoming holiday and New Year, I’d like to reflect on this year and plan for the upcoming months.

I started this blog in January of this year. I felt like it’d be a fun side project to distract me from reality. It was a rough start, still kneading out the bumps, but more or less I have a rhythm going.

Hopefully, I’ll be still keeping this blog going for days to come. I enjoy being able to share my thoughts about the books I have read. Even the off topics discussions are fun too!

My plans so far for the next year is going through my “to be read” list. I have crates of books that I’ve purchased and I’d like to try and make a dent on that massive list.

I would also like to review books that I’ve read in the past. I like the Harry Potter series, but the later books are long and massive. I’ve read so many it’d be difficult to pick which ones I’d reread.

So those are my thoughts and ideas at this point in time. I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday/Christmas/whatever holiday you celebrate! Thanks for reading my blog!
