I was listening to someone rant today about how everyone is suddenly afraid to say "Merry Christmas" for the fear of not being politically correct. I'm a pretty secular person with non-specific spiritual beliefs and I'm not the least offended if someone wishes me a merry Christmas. I wouldn't be offended if they wished me a "Happy Yule," either. I think the whole Happy Holidays thing was started by the retailers who wanted to be sure to include all winter holiday revelers in their winter sales. As for regular people though, I have yet to meet one actual person who is really offended if someone wishes them a "Merry Christmas," which means people who are offended by the people who are offended by the phrase are getting their panties in a wad over nothing.
How about you? Are you offended by being wished a "Merry Christmas?" Do you know anyone who actually is?
