If someone wishes me a Happy Hanukkah, I expect that they are wishing good will and joy. If someone gets upset because I wish them a Merry Christmas, then it's their problem. I'm simply hoping they have a great day.



I believe it's absurd that people can get angry about someone wishing them a good day, no matter the holiday.

IMHO such sensitivity is getting ridiculous. I believe it is at Oberlin College that the cafeteria is being charged with racism because their ethnic recipes are not authentically prepared.

Indeed. I'm Jewish and is somebody wishes me MC I totally do not have problem with it. If person knows that I am Jewish and still does it, then I'll wish that person Happy Chanukah. As a joke obviously.
I think the only people who are bent out of shape are the people who are not sure who they are. What they are, people who are not stable in their beliefs.

I can't imagine attacking someone who wishes someone "Happy Holidays". There's no "Christmas Spirit" in doing such a nasty unkind thing.

Mm hmm. It's weird how, every so often, you make a point of telling everyone how intolerant you are.

I tell my employees to wish customers Happy Holidays. It's a no hassle greeting and covers all bases. Our shop is decked out with Christmas decorations, not generic holiday decorations.
