    Those of you who say "Happy Holidays" instead of Merry Christmas due to the religious aspects of Christmas are being hypocritical of your own values. You are wishing us happy "Holy Days" without realizing it :lol:

    Actually, I'm inclined to say "Joyous Yule." Unless I'm talking to a Christian; then I'll say "Happy Holidays." It's not to cast out God, but to avoid offending someone whose religious beliefs are different from mine, and might feel bizarre being given a Pagan holiday blessing.

    Christians really need to get over this narcissistic notion that anyone who isn't a Christian is an atheist.

    I admit I say Merry Christmas to people at Christmas time. Its my favorite holiday and to me its a family celebration and has zero religion because my family isn't religious.

    If they say they don't celebrate I tell them "Thats cool I still hope you have a merry day"

    Who is offended by being wished a merry christmas anyway? Is someone here offended by being wished a merry christmas? Honestly?

    I would love to discuss what is offensive if you are.

    Eid is a holiday that marks the end of fasting for Muslims.

    I agree. Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ. Christians celebrate this event. Non-Christians should report to work that day rather than use a Christian holiday as yet another excuse for a day off hitting the bottle.
