Are you offended by the greeting "Merry Christmas"? If so, why? (Just curious!)

  • I'm not, and I'm an atheist. Honestly, I don't see what the big deal is. I'll say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, it's all the same to me. I'm wishing somebody (or somebody is wishing me) a cheerful holiday wish, why get my panties in a bunch over that?

  • Thank you Anouck! Glad to hear someone that isn't a Christian actually realizes that its ridiculous to get offended by such a thing.

  • I grew up Jewish. I don't practice it anymore. I'm raising my kids with christmas trees and all that. But I don't like cards that say merry christmas. I have to say it offends me a little. Like people assume everyone celebrates christmas. I much prefer "happy holidays".
