Re: Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays?

I kind of think of this as being really irrational. I really don't think that saying "merry christmas" is such a big deal. When my Jewish friends say "Happy Hanukkah" I don't give them a second glance, I just say "you too," even though I don't celebrate it. It's pretty much the same thing as saying "happy holidays", but people act as if it's an insult to their own religion. I think people just have to deal with it: that everyone isn't the same. Just because christmas is a very popular holiday (where I am) doesn't mean you have to separate them from yourself in a different group like they're an enemy or something stupid like that. (It's like vegans saying that commercials selling chicken are offensive to them.) I think people need to look on the bright side: they can still celebrate their own religion and holidays and aren't forced to practice something they don't believe in.
Freedom of speech and religion anyone?
