Chris Buttars, a Senator for Utah, seems a bit down this holiday season and wants to pass a resolution encouraging retailers to say “Merry Christmas” in Utah.
Forget “Happy holidays.” What Sen. Chris Buttars wants to hear from Utah retailers is “Merry Christmas.”
The West Jordan Republican is having a resolution drafted for the 2009 Legislature that he said asks retailers not to “exclude Christmas from your holiday greetings.” Resolutions, of course, cannot be enforced.
Buttars said he is seeking the resolution because he was contacted by several employees of a retailer he declined to name that had been told they couldn’t say “Merry Christmas” to customers.
I say we help cheer him up and send him some holiday love.
