I will say Happy Vestival to everyone too, screw anyone who doesn't like sweater vests

Do you have to pin the head of a household for Vestival to end? If not, then I'm not interested

I wonder how many people that get upset with "Merry Christmas" work on Christmas, afterall since it's a religious holiday that they don't believe in they should be at working picking up my slack.

I wonder how many people of other religions have to work on their holidays or use their vacation time? This is exactly the obtuse arrogance that leads to this type debate.

Employers are required by law to provide reasonable accommodation of religion that doesn't cause them undue hardship

It also helps that Christmas is a federal holiday - but I'll gladly be "obtusely arrogant" when it comes to saying Merry Christmas.

I wonder if the Happy Holiday crowd refers to the Super Bowl as the "Big Game" so they don't violate the trademark of the NFL.

because i don't know you, i will wish you a Happy Holiday.

because you don't know me, the polite thing to do is to wish me a Happy Holiday. it's the assumption that i'm celebrating Christmas as well, and the assumption that the entire month of December is the sole province of Christmas, is what causes people to wrinkle their noses at the insistence of Merry Christmas.

just be polite, people.
