Every year, and this one is no different, I see at least 6 people whining about not being "allowed" to talk about Christmas or say Merry Christmas or staple Jesus to a courthouse or whatever, for every 1 person I see actually complaining about someone saying "Christmas." I see dozens of "oppressed" people, and rarely hear anyone doing the shouting and complaining that is supposedly oppressing them. In fact, the only time I really ever see anyone complain about it at all, is in response to people pre-emptively whining about being PC'd to death.
How often do you hear someone, without provocation, complain about Christmas? How often do you hear someone claim they're being yelled at for mentioning Christmas? Does the number of people "starting it" remotely account for the number of people complaining about it?

I honestly never heard so much complaining til I came to this site. I never heard anyone get yelled at for saying merry Christmas and I never have heard anyone try to start something about it. It is annoying that you have to the PC all the time or you might "hurt" someones feelings. I just think people need to get over it.

I have never seen anyone compalin about somoeone else saying Merry Christmas. I have never seen anyone told to take down a Christmas decoration/
Last year while planning the holiday show for my daughters school, some on the board thought about cutting some of the songs in case you MIGHT offend...we spoke up and said, don't take the songs OUT, just add some OTHER type of songs so ALL the KIDS are included....They did and there wasn't one complaint from a school of over 600 with many different cultures and religions
