someone wishes you a happy Christmas?

How do you handle it if someone says that to you and you do not celebrate Christmas?

We'll take it for granted that these are random people or casual friends or even online friends who may not know you very well... as those who know you very well will know you do not celebrate.

I celebrate Christmas. I tell everyone Merry Christmas. If they say that i've offended them I apologize.

 i do celebrate but if i didn't i wouldn't get offened.  you can't expect strangers or people you don't know very well to know your beliefs.  that being said i rarely wish people a merry christmas.  i know people of many faiths & beliefs & to make it easy i simple wish everyone "happy, merry holidays".  the cards we send out are also "holiday generic", wishing the receiver "happy holidays", "glad tidings", etc.

 I personally celebrate Christmas and Yule but no holiday greeting offends me. To be honest I find it silly that anyone does. Its just a polite greeting not worth getting offened over.
