Just came across this and the smile that came across my dial must have been massive.

Merry Christmas

I never understood the whole "Happy Holidays" thing.
Who seriously in their right mind would be offended by "Merry Christmas"?

Those who told us that the term was offensive and outdated also told us that America was an open and tolerant society and intolerence is a big no no.
Somehow those who were intolerant of the word Christmas got a pass on that one.

Im on the fence as to whether Trump will make America great again but Im 99% sure hell at least make America America again.

Hopefully were seeing the death of PC culture.
GO TRUMP


Edit to add: And a MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

I have yet to see somebody be offended by "Merry Christmas". But I have sure seen a lot of offended expressions on snowflake Christian faces when I say "Happy Holidays".

I say happy holidays because I have no idea which one the person I'm talking to celebrates. Self-entitled Christians, I tell ya...

"Shove the happy holiday up ur a@@, Christmas is back, fack yeah"

When did it go anywhere?

Were you not allowed to decorate your house?

Could you not still wish people Merry Xmas if you wanted?

Did anyone come along and snatch your Co-co?

Silly imaginary "war".

I couldnt agree more, it was silly.
Even here in Australia we no longer have nativity plays and schools arent allowed to have students make tree decorations like we used to, all for the fear of offending people who most likely wouldnt be offended anyway.
If they were offended f@$# em!!!

I hate religion but cant blame Chtistians for being offended, how do you think Muslims would take it if we all of a sudden said we were gonna start calling Ramadan no food month or something.

Equality and tolerence needs to work both ways or else its just called being walked all over

Nobody is offended by "merry Christmas"; people said "happy holidays" because there's something like a dozen holidays all falling in the same time frame and they're civilized to recognize this fact.

Awful lot of triggered "christians" out there though.

Hi there Abysha,

I'm a Christian (new to it) but would definitely appreciate your "Happy Holidays!"

I think any kind gesture is a good thing.

I haven't seen anyone offended by Merry Christmas, either, though. So I guess either it's blown way out of propotion or I have lived in a very happy little bubble..?

"War on Christmas," LOLOLOL e'rbody has to start pulling the victim card.

'Happy Holidays' was started by the greeting card companies.
Cost effective way of covering a variety of holidays with one card.

Happy Hanukkah.

How do I enlist for this War on Christmas and what type of weapon do I get?

a reply to: IkNOwSTuff
IMO the capitalistic nature has done more to kill any holiday cheer than anything. Starting incessant ads before Halloween is just a crusher.

I've no problem hearing Happy Holidays nor Merry Christmas. I've no problem if someone wishes me happy Kwanza. It's the sentiment. Someone thinking of something other than themselves.

Are there several other religious holidays falling on the entire month of Ramadan? Nope.

Christmas shares the holiday period with several other religions. Saying "happy holidays" isn't to exclude Christians (psst, it includes them) but it's to include whoever might be in front of you. On Yule, I say Blessed Yule. On Christmas, I say Merry Christmas. The others mostly take up more than one day. So if it's not the solstice or the 25th, I say "Happy Holidays" because it's the HOLIDAY SEASON WITH SEVERAL HOLIDAYS.

Christmas is a too big to fail event for retailers. Nothing to worry about unless one needs something to worry about.

I like the old "Season's Greetings".
