Merry Christmas to Christians Happy Holidays to others and fück you to anyone who was offended by the first two statements.
@grayhome, exactly. If i say merry Christmas to someone and they respond with happy haunnika or happy kwanza im not going to be upset. I say merry Christmas because its what i celebrate. They can say whatever they celebrate too. Its not a big deal as long as no one gets upset over terminology or being PC
@grayhome, my friend’s dad had the best answer for the “merry Christmas” for non-Christians issue. He is Jewish, but said he always enjoyed being wished a merry Christmas because he understood and appreciated the positive sentiment being expressed behind the statement, not the isolation of the words to the specific religion or holiday.
@grayhome, and a happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends!
@PunnyBaker, my dad's side is Jewish my mom's side is Christian so at that point I really don't care what you wish me if you want me to be happy then happy Hanukkah, Christmas or any other to you to
@JDPhi, the only time when I'm annoyed by people wishing me a Merry Christmas is when I'm prominently wearing a Jewish Star and they're oblivious, and even then it's just annoying because they're oblivious not because they wished me to enjoy the 'wrong' holiday.
Besides, at least when it comes to Judaism and Christianity, Christmas is an important holiday to them, Hanukkah isn't.
@grayhome, @PunnyBaker, happy Yule friends
@grayhome, Merry Christmas to everyone, because lazy.
@I Are Lebo, I'm an agnostic and I'm not in the least bit bothered when people who know that I'm agnostic say "Merry Christmas!". It's just not something all that important, especially when the phrase is meant as a wish of good tidings. It's not even as if they do it to be malicious.
So, yeah, have a Merry Christmas, (((I Are Lebo))). Or don't. It's up to you, really.
@grayhome, I support the original message
I think this is satire
@darthsexy, I thought it was shjt
Regardless if someone celebrates the holidays or not, if someone is saying merry Christmas or happy holidays...it’s just them saying they wish you good days to come and be happy. Stop being b1tchy little c&nts and take it as a friendly gesture. A$$hats
But would this not further the "War on Christmas?" I feel this is going in the opposite direction of solving a problem.
@TheKen42, Yeah. This is some petty shît, and would come off as such. Especially considering the “war on Christmas” is widely a non-issue that gets inflated through the spread of false information (claims that Obama never said Merry Christmas), or zealots with, perhaps, an alternative agenda who just want to rabble rouse.
@TheKen42, some people just want to watch the world burn
@TheKen42, Well there's no problem to solve there. There is no "war on Christmas". It's just a bunch of people wanting to be victims of something.
@Weird Porn Stash, Hence the quotations, as my statement was more hypothetical. However, people are making such a bit deal about it either way there might as well be one 😕
@Berntley, Obama invented AIDS
@stonedcommentor420, remember that time he quarantined an entire middle school full of Ebola patients and kept it out of the news so that he could keep importing Muslims but the plane full?
@TheKen42, I don’t say “Merry Christmas” because I like to see the absolute cringe on the spines of those very few people who think we should say “Happy Birthday, Jesus” instead. I say “Happy Holidays” on purpose and follow up with “even though Jesus was most likely born in July... and brown...”
I don't celebrate Christmas but I like giving cards to those who do since it's expected and a big holiday. Went to buy cards, wanted ones that said like "seasons greetings" or something instead of Christmas. The seller looked at me like I was some kind of heathen Satan worshipper lol
Damn people just respond to whatever holiday greeting you’re given with whatever holiday greeting you want. Don’t act like you’re being oppressed it’s a greeting
Except christmas starts after thanksgiving, which is right now
