I have always thought it should be Merry Christmas during the holidays, but not anymore. Now you ask any of my close friends and they will back me up saying I am the least politically correct individual. Like those green big headed aliens should go back to Muskar-6. They can't drive and they can't metabolize salt. Losers. Or the fuzzy cuddly Mino cats. They don't even speak English. Getting back to the point, I figured, why say Happy Holiday, it's Christmas? It's our holiday. Why should we bend to a few people who don't celebrate Christmas and say Happy Holiday? They get off the same days as us and they don't even observe Christmas. So we should be able to say whatever we want...right?
Yes and no. Yes we should be able to say Merry Christmas to whomever we want, but you should think a little. That family from Sri Lanka do you think they celebrate Christmas? Probably not. So slapping them with a Merry Christmas every time you see them must be annoying. What if they bugged you that it was Diwali the Festival of Lights? You would probably grumble and say something derogatory under your breath. Maybe that is what they do after you leave the room.
Even if the person you are saying Merry Christmas to is white they could be Jewish and I am pretty sure they don't believe that Christ was the messiah. Or worse yet it could be an atheist and it could be one of the ones that think you're interested in hearing how Christ isn't real and that it was just a pagan holiday....blah, blah, blah. Do they think parroting something back that they read on the Internet makes them sound or are smart? Some of these douche bags are as bad as those Christians that try to force religion down your throat. Can't they see that they are identical? And they hate each other so much.
You see on TV that they always say Happy Holiday. They don't want to alienate their potential costumers and lose money by saying a simple greeting. Is that what you are mad at? You see Happy Holidays on TV a lot? TV? How old are you? Can you think a little? When has TV ever had its thoughts on tradition and value? It's on money. Relax. Don't get riled up by what they are doing on television. You will just fuel their bright fire. Ignore it from time to time. You'll find you will have a less stressful time.
You should be nice. Isn't saying Happy Holiday a nice thing to say, instead of segregating people? Is that what you are trying to promote at this time of year? Not rage at some one saying Happy Holiday? Personally I think you should try to be nice all year around instead of just at Christmas. So what? Right after Christmas you should go kick some dogs and burn down an orphanage? Maybe instead of worrying what to say to greet someone during the darkest time of the year you should worry about how you are going to help your fellow man or how you are going to treat your family at this wonderful time of year.
Seasons....Merry.....Happy....err good luck,
