At my work we do secret pals to give each other gifts for the holidays. The woman who picked me this year is someone I don't know at all. For both Easter and Christmas she gave me religious things. I am not a Christian and was surprised that she would just assume I was.
If you are Christian do you just assume everyone else is too?

I think a lot of people DO assume that. It definitely depends on a lot of circumstances as well but in my personal experience, the majority assume you are Christian or they just cannot comprehend the fact that not everyone shares their beliefs. I have especially found this out now that I live in the south. ITA with mandaday and have experienced the switch in treatment as soon as they discover you aren't. But, I usually stay away from sharing my beliefs primarily to avoid the problems.
I also think there are people that do not care what your religious beliefs are, they feel it is a way to proclaim their beliefs and 'spread the word.'
