Theyre not changing anything, they're eliminating a tunnel view of expression. If they changed it, they would be saying "Happy Hanaka" instead of
Merry Christmas, instead theyre saying happy holidays, which acknowledges ALL holidays during the holiday season. Also, remember, even if your
christian, you are still celebrating christmas AND New years, so there are two Holidays there, and therefore, due to the rules of the english
language, the s in holidays is mandatory
Christmas as a national holiday did not come about till roughly 1870. Infact, Puritans BANNED it for almost over twenty years when they got here to
america. Its not the government is ABLIGED to celebrate christmas, and christmas in its current incarnation is just a commercial cash cow invented to
sell more stuff in our little ignorant capitalist society of ours.
