How DARE business owners demand Respect be Shown To ALL Customers, Not Just Christians. NAZIS INDEED!! *smdfh*


Quoting ZsMommy:

Well-let's see...

When I worked retail and before it became "politically required" I would say "Happy Holidays" just to cover all.

Then the Christmas Nazi's made a huge stink of wishing anyone a "Merry Christmas" and any show of Christmas spirit...In retaliation I have gone back to Merry Christmas unless it's blatently obvious someone does not celebrate or hold interest in this time of year.

Crazy-yes-but meh- MERRY CHRISTMAS/Happy Holidays/Whatever you celebrate/don't celebrate-Enjoy!

I think you missed my point-had nothing to do with business owners-In fact no business owner ever told anyone they were required to use 'Happy Holidays".Just talking bout the whole insane "war on Christmas"

Sorry if you're offended if I wish you a Merry Christmas.

There is no war on Christmas. I am not offended by people wishing me a Merry Christmas as long as they are sincere and not being deliberate bitches.

I'm atheist and I still say Merry Christmas. It doesn't bother me if other say it to me either.

I say Merry Christmas, but sometimes say Happy Holidays especially to the people I know don't celebrate Christmas.
