Merry Christmas

I am offended by you people who say "happy holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas."

I am offended by you people who say "happy holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas." Listen: The holdiay is Christmas. You people don't say "happy holidays" for Thangsgiving, Easter, or Halloween, so why do you use this insult for Christmas?

I will be paying close attention to all Christmas advertising, and I will not patronize any store that insults me by saying "happy holidays."

And any card I receive that says "happy holidays" on it will bypass the recycle bin and go straight to the trash barrel. They don't deserve to be recycled.

I am a Christian and except for a few days right at Christmas From Thanksgiving - New Years Day I say "HAPPY HOLIDAYS." It encompasses the whole SEASON! I think some people are just looking for something to argue about (why else would you post this? and trying to draw attention to yourself) Do you think Christ would throw a fit about people and stores saying "Merry Christmas?" instead of a respectful and happy "Happy Holidays?"

I really don't care, whole thing is stupid. If you say Merry Christmas I will say thank you and wish you one, same with happy Hanukkah or whatever it is one celebrates or believes in. Want a manger, sign, golden cow, whatever, I am okay with it. The whole thing has gotten way out of hand. I am not insulted by any good wishes towards me, only the opposite. It is just being polite and respectful to everyone that matters. Wish me a happy athiest day and I will still say thank you. We are not here long enough for all this crap. With tat I wish everyone a nice day<G>.
