Maybe I'm just ignorant, but chances are there is no malice behind saying it. How some people can react to Merry Christmas like they've just been told to fuck off is beyond me.

Hey Randhail, Happy Channukah.

How do you like that? Feels good, right? Now have it said to you about 100 times in December. Still feel good, or is it a bit weird?

I know if someone wishes me Happy Kwanza I wouldn't get all ticked a tell them to fuck off....I would smile and say "you too" or something.....some people like to suck every inch of love and happiness out of everything just to make it miserable for others.

Sticks and stones...

Since I haven't had that happen, I can't answer you, but I'd like to think that the words wouldn't bother me. Afterall, it is the spirit of the words that give them meaning.

I grew up next to a Jewish family and I was never offended by their Hanukkah decorations or Hanukkah greetings.

It's been my experience through out the years that often times the people pushing the hardest for diversity are the same people who come down the hardest on public expression of religious belief, whether it be Christian or otherwise.

Happy Holidays is boring. Show some backbone and let other people know what you BELIEVE. We're scared to death of that in our society.

Good point. I am mostly to the left on most issues. However, I think people should be be able to celebrate a holiday the way they want to and without worring about offending someone. Merry Christmas everyone.

We should all take a good hard look at the people making issues out of things like this while there are literally hundreds if not thousands of more pertinent issues to the national debate.

It's the same people who were responsible for such a large part of the national election debate being centered around such high priority issues as gay marriage.

I mean, forget healthcare, jobs and foreign policy and all the rest.
"Manger scenes" and "Adam and Steve" that's where it's at.

Might very well be and they aren't the only ones.

The point is all of these groups are wrong, not just the ones we tend to agree more or less with.

Personally, you could take the ACLU and the right wing fundies and flush them for all I care.
