The Month of December is home to many different celebrations from many different faiths. But I've seen a lot of people getting up in arms about people using 'Happy Holidays' instead of 'Merry Christmas' - and something about a 'war on Christmas'. December isn't a Christian only celebratory month - so why the issue?

DJ - thanks for that. I agree. And yes, for me 24 & 25 Dec are about family - always have been. The issue with the statement is confusing for that reason! Wishing you and yours love and peace from Nz
Exactly - one should not be forced to say what the employer wants unless it's a standard industry wide greeting like 'welcome to Joes' - Xmas isn't I'm thankful that someone took the time to think of giving me the greeting regardless which it is!
I totally agree. Why should it matter. It seems to me the "enforced" political correctness just adds fuel to the fire of the "war on xmas" crowd.
Same here - I don't get the issue, hence the question! The pic Peeples posted is very good.
I totally agree and the only one who gets up in arms are the people who feel they have to be victims of some alleged "war" on Christmas. It's laughable considering in some countries being a Christian would be punishable by death. that's the real war
I agree Sarah - if they take issue, it's on them not you or me.
I know what you mean.
I don't say anything at Easter. Did u read the question - Dec is not just home to Christmas. I have no problem with Merry Christmas - it's people getting offended by Happy Holidays or greetings other than Meri Xmas. Xmas 4me is abt family.
It's the sentiment, not the words that should count. If someone wishes me Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays - I accept the sentiment behind it and well wishes. Many traditions share the same day - read pagan history for example, many similarities.
