    I have the privilege of knowing several jews, muslims, buddhists, and atheist. Not one of them has ever mentioned be offended by being wished a Merry Christmas, or for that matter a Happy Chanukah, or Wesak, or Ashura. Personally, I’m an athesit, but anybody wants to wish me well – I’LL TAKE IT!

    How DARE he say “Happy New Year?” Doesn’t he know that the Chinese and the Jews have a different new year? How insensitive.

    Well, as the year is based on a circular orbit, it has no beginning or end. Nice thoughtful comments everyone, Happy, happy, joy, joy . (Ren and Stimpy)

    You realize that people have been saying “Happy Holidays” and “Seasons Greetings” for over a hundred years, don’t you? This is not a new way of incorporating several holidays.
    The entire annual flap is stupid and pointless – it’s just folks getting upset for the sake of getting upset.

    Walrus and Doc both bring the proper perspective:; if folks see a reason for peace, and love, in celebrating their season, and a caring for others, ALL others, then what you call the celebration matters not a whit. Now if everyone just accepted everyone else’s right to “celebrate”, and not just in their own way?

    The Christians stole a lot of Christmas stuff from other religions, so I don’t mind stealing Christmas from the Christians.

    Hello DrCanuck,
    I’m with the Walrus and Howgozit on this one. If a person wants to say hello or Happy Hanakuh/Christmas/Kwanza/Solstice/Holidays, I’ll smile and at least say thanks. There is much more acceptance of the seasons greetings than there is resentment, and if greeting a stranger, any kindness is better than a stoic nod.
    That said—
    Have a safe and happy new year.
    Respectfully
    & Happy Holidayze, or Hollow days, or wholly dazed.

    I thought it was Happy Christmas and Merry New Year…not Xmas.

    I find whenever I say a cheery ‘Bah Humbug!’ it is usually well received.

    I’ve decided that this year I’m going to wish everyone a “Merry Holidays” and a “Happy Christmas”. Just to mess with them.

    Yeah, and the “War on Christmas” thing was invented by O’Reily and Lawyers, so…….

    There is a long standing and legitimate tradition of using the term Xmas.

    No, we just don’t like it when the ACLU or some athiest comes and forces/sues a city by making them take down a Christmas Tree or a Manger Scene, even a school when some nut has a coniption over a Christmas song sung at a school concert, etc. Well, goody, a FEW people who have coal for hearts get to ruin it for THOUSANDS who happen to LIKE Christmas traditions. What YOU call an “invented war”, WE call protecting OUR rights!!!

    Xristos – Greek for Christ. Look it up.

    I like that one. “Happy Flying Spaghetti Monster Sauce Day.” (Of course, by the time you say it the season is over.)

    The ACLU only demands that all beliefs get equal treatment. Local officials sometimes have a tantrum and ban all holiday displays, rather than allow a non-Christian sentiment to “contaminate” their holiday.

    Between this and the fact that the commercialization of Christmas is largely perpetrated by Christians, I’d say it’s the Christians who are waging war on Christmas.
