    Actually "It" can refer to a large number of things. As for the holidays over the winter, you are forgetting some such as Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, and Kwanza.

    Shocked that there are other religions besides Christianity, and not everyone is the same as you? Educate yourself...its a wonderful world out there, who knows what you could learn or discover.

    Who cares, if someone greets me with anything short of a gun blast I'm happy.

    :eusa_naughty: Shocked at the fact that you did not get a simple song or the between the lines meaning behind it..Christianity is being frowned upon everywhere and in every manner and it is what this Country is founded upon. The more Christianity is taken out of schools and work places the worse things get...it may not be perfect but its better than anything else out there and it keeps the loonies on the path. SO PUT A HELMET ON.
    I don't have a problem with any of the other religions but society is trying to stifle MY right to say MERRY CHRISTMAS...They are making it politically incorrect...thats what I have a problem with...Merry Christmas!

    They have taken God out of schools, out of the work place and made it all politically incorrect. They are trying to outlaw santa from saying ho-ho-ho and they are trying like hell to take away our guns.........Do you NOT see where this TRAIN ends????????

    I'm calling it Christmas, and saying "Merry Christmas." If you're offended, plug your ears.:badgrin:

    I'm happy to wish you a merry christmas. And I don't get offended when someone says it to me. But I prefer to be greeted with the more generic "happy holidays" just as a function of respect. And that's not intended to be disrespectful to your beliefs, but there are many of us for whom Christmas is fun, but it's really just a day to hang out with friends and family since we have the day off. In fact, I usually spend it with one of my cousins and her family since they DO celebrate Christmas.

    I'm usually respectful of people who don't celebrate Christmas so long as they aren't whining about it.

    I must confess I take sadistic delight in antagonizing whiners.:eusa_dance:
