What is your standing on this issue? I used to think that it was stupid and a bi-product of political correctness gone mad, but now i'm not so sure. While I don't think that employees should be prohibited from saying "Merry christmas!" to customers, it doesn't really seem appropriate to me. Sure, there may becases where it is obvious if someone celebrates christmas, but apart from that you're really just assuming. I've also come to realize now that I'm an atheist how annoying it is that manger scenes are everywhere.

Thoughts?

I support Happy Holidays, or at least a Happy Kwanzaa and Happy Hanukkah thrown in the mix.

I don't really know. I mean some people don't celebrate Christmas as part of their religion and still buy people gifts or give out cards. Yet at the same time I think sometimes it's more appropriate to say Happy Holidays. I'll gladly use either or both phrase.

I'm sick of the huge Mosque they built next to a local park. It just doesn't fit in.


Hahahaha. I give internet love you.

Ever since I was a little boy I've been firmly in favour of ''Merry Christmas''.

If someone tells you "Merry Christmas" and you don't celebrate Christmas, don't bitch about it. They are saying it to be nice.

I'm agnostic and I say Merry Christmas.

I don't think it should bother people who don't celebrate Christmas when they're told "Merry Christmas."


i agree.
in a lot of places, christmas is celebrated more than any other holiday. so if you're in a minority i think you should have to get used to it.

that's just me though.

Well you could look at Christmas in a non religious way. Seeing as how some people will acknowledge the existance of Jesus but not as the son of a god, you can see Christmas as the birthday of an influential man......Or so I'm told >_>
#21
Why not combine them and say "happy Christmas"? Or say both, "Happy holidays and merry Christmas"? What I don't get is why both atheists AND religious types all get their panties in a bunch about goddamn Christmas. I mean seriously, why do you care how someone else celebrates a national holiday? I'd classify all the whining as segregation and have you all arrested for human rights violation if I were a dictator (thankfully I'm not (or am I?)).

just enjoy the damn holidays any way you see fit. End of.

I don't really mind what they say, but I think it should be "Merry Christmas". It's been about CHRISTmas from the very beginning.

I don't understand what the big deal is about saying Merry Christmas. It's not like someone is stomping all over your religion by saying it if you're not Catholic. It's just said to be nice and as a sign of good will between two people. I wouldn't get all pissy if a Jewish person said Happy Hanukkah to me, I'd say it back and be happy because they're being polite and kind.

no vs threads is my thoughts!

You mean it's been about christ since christians stole the holiday from pagans, right?

I just talked about this with my muslim buddy. He said that he HATES happy holidays. He's a transplant from fiji, a FOREIGNER, its our country, and we should say merry christmas cause thats our national holiday. Just like in arabic countries they say merry ramadan or whatever.
Is this what you want?

Agreed. If you really want to be correct you'd wish Happy Holidays. But I think political correctness is a **** these days. I don't think I know too many people who actually mean 'there are no holidays out there so you must celebrate what I'm celelbrating' when they say 'Merry Christmas'.

I say Merry Christmas because I celebrate Christmas. If you celebrate something else say Happy Kwanzaa or Happy Hanukkah or whatever else if you celebrate it. It's the holiday season right now, take pride in whatever you celebrate (or if you don't celebrate anything). People shouldn't be offended that other people celebrate different holidays. You should be happy with what you celebrate and share it with others. Just my opinion anyway.

I say happy holidays to include the whole 2 week's worth of break. I don't want to say merry christmas and happy new year and have a good winter break. Too much work.

No "Merry Christmas" thrown in the mix?

So, we can wish other religions a happy holidays, but not Christianity?

I see...

Oh, but yeah, i would say "happy honukkah" if i was talking to someone who celabrates it, or happy kwanzaa if i acctually KNEW someone who celabrates it... Which i don't, and whats odd is, nobody i know seems to know anyone who celabrates it either...
