What religions are offended by Christmas, just out of curiousity? I thought that Jewish people celebrate St. Nicholas Day/Chanuka. Well, I don't celebrate anything around December, but I'm not offended by my friends who talk about Christmas all the time. It's just something we've grown used to over the years.

I do believe this is true. But there are some people that are really ethnocentric. Just the other day, some guy asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I told him I didn't celebrate Christmas, and he said, "You Hindus are satanic." Now, when someone uses "weird", I can understand that, but I was really offended when he called my religion 'satanic' just because I didn't celebrate it. I mean, I still spread the cheer. I'm never offended by someone greeting me with "Merry Christmas!"
