I am not a religious person. I don't believe in God or Jesus or anything like that. I know how Christmas originated, but it does not bother me to hear someone say Merry Christmas to me.
I know most people have started saying "Happy Holidays" instead. I just wanted to know how others feel about it that don't celebrate Christmas or aren't religious. I overheard someone freaking out about it the other day because a Wal-Mart cashier wished her a Merry Christmas and she just flipped out because she doesn't believe in Christmas and doesn't want to hear it.
Just because you don't believe in it doesn't mean everyone else doesn't and I'm pretty sure that lady didn't mean to offend her, she was being nice and courteous to a customer. I just think she blew it way out of proportion. I'm not going to ruin someone's cheer and happiness for wishing me a Merry Christmas because I don't believe in Christ. They were just being nice, ya know?

"No ,and it's always been "Christmas". Politically correct or not. Why can't they just leave it alone ?"
No honey, it hasn't. Idk where you live, but where I live there are a lot of people who are Jewish, I would consider it rude to wish them a Merry Christmas, knowing they don't celebrate. I don't think anyone would mind, but if I know they celebrate Hanukkah instead of Christmas, I should wish them Happy Hanukkah or Happy Holidays at least. Besides, Happy Holidays can also include New Year's so I see nothing wrong with saying it. I don't care what anyone wishes me, as long as they're not telling me to f-off.

I don't mind it at all. I think if everyone jsut took whatever well wishes came thier way as just that - the world be be a nicer place!
I think this woman who freaked of the cashier had other things she was actually pissed about and took it out on the wrong person for the wrong reason! I think at some point she would have freaked out on someone you know? Being a cashier can be really crappy at times *I WAS a WM cashier so I know ;)
