St. Augustine, Fla. — The owner of a restaurant in Florida posted the photo of a note left by a customer that said the Christmas music playing in the business was “offensive.”
On Dec. 3, Michael Lugo, owner and chef at Michael’s Tasting Room in St. Augustine, posted the picture on Facebook.
The note, which was posted on the back of a receipt, reads, “Christmas music was offensive. Consider playing ‘holiday’ music or less religious themed.”
“It’s all about celebration of family celebration of gathering with friends and people and it’s a tradition,” Lugo told First Coast News.” It’s not about a religion, it’s not about anything else. I am a Christian but I don’t push that as my agenda I think that Christmas is Christmas.”
Lugo says it was the second time in the same week he received a complaint about Christmas music.
“We will continue to be us, it’s worked well for ten years, but it is sad that two times in one week basic Christmas music has angered our patrons…is this what we’ve become in America?”
