Almost every year we hear about people being offended by someone saying “Merry Christmas.”

Sam Eskenasi, an Orthodox Jew, says that’s silly and that the real offence comes from people who say “Happy Holidays.”

Watch Sam’s Christmas message and find out why he doesn’t have a holiday tree and isn’t getting Chanukah presents from Santa this year.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
