WATCH: The 1 Christmas Message Dems NEVER Wanted You To See

For years, many on the left have attempted to discourage people from using the greeting “Merry Christmas” in favor of their preferred phrase “Happy Holidays.”

While supporters of the latter expression contend that it is more inclusive, one television personality has made clear that he has no intention of getting on board. 

That individual is Fox News host Jesse Watters, and according to his network, Watters contributed to a book about Christmas by fellow Fox News hosts Rachel Campos-Duffy and her husband Sean Duffy.

“Early in my career, I often went out to report from the front lines on the War on Christmas,” Watters was quoted as saying in “All American Christmas.”

Watters recalls attempts to “deemphasize Christmas”

The host remembered how over the years he had investigated “some of the ridiculous attempts various groups made to deemphasize Christmas.”

Examples included “not being able to call a Christmas tree a Christmas tree and substituting the word ‘holiday’ in front of ‘tree,’ banning candy canes, not putting lights up in a town square due to concerns about global warming.”

“I tried to get to the bottom of all those stories, and I wasn’t caroling, but I did knock on a lot of doors,” he continued, adding that he “wasn’t fueled by anything in a flask.”

Instead, Watters insisted that he “was out there defending a holiday and the traditions that the vast majority of us celebrate and hold dear.”

Host credits mother with being “community spirited”

The host also made mention of the role that Christmas had played in his own life, saying, “My mom was very much a Christmas traditionalist and very community spirited.”

“You put those two things together, and I have memories of us going door-to-door in our neighborhood in Philadelphia to sing Christmas carols.”

“Those memories tie us to the past — to our families, to our friends, to our neighbors, and to those whose gifts were eventually repackaged and presented to children who understood and appreciated the gift of the season,” he noted.

“I guess we all just want to be startin’ somethin’ come the end of the year,” Watters concluded. “I prefer that thing be what we know and love as Christmas.”
