Why is it wrong to say Merry Christmas as a greeting to anyone you see? Why can't a Public building have a Merry Christmas sign if they are just recognizing the federal holiday?

This is NOT a christian nation The Federal Holiday is Christmas. So if a government building is acknowledging a Federal Holiday, they aren't doing anything wrong.

To anon 5: I think it's arrogant of us as a nation to decide that just because another religion/culture has a holiday in December that it;s their most important holiday. Most other religions (Jew and Muslims) celebrate their important holidays in October. If we're really trying to be accepting of other's faiths, we'd recornize their important holidays verses ones that fall close to Christmas.
