    how can anyone take offense to that?
    ...same way some can take offense to your/our willingness to defend ourselves. They're after our guns, AND our holidays......

    however.......... MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR

    Lets put Christ back in xmas...... MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND GOD BLESS!

  4. Celebrating

    I say Happy Holidays, and PC has absolutely nothing to do with it. So I am not a Christian, I feel no need to apologize to anyone, just because my beliefs are not the same as yours. As far as Xmas, goes, if you do a bit of research, you will find Xmas was in use almost before Christmas. The initial laetter of the Greek for Jesus Christ was X (I don't remember the whole thing now, but you can look it up. Why should I take your trying to shove your beliefs down my throat and expect me to like having you try to indoctrinate me? I do not denigrate your belief in Christianity, I ask the same tolerance for my beliefs.

    Sounds kinda like going to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and then proceeding to ***** about how loud the cars are......

    In any case.... Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year

    Wuzfuz, you do not, I repeat, do NOT have to believe in Christianity or Jesus Christ to celebrate Christmas. The holiday, on December 25th, is called Christmas Day. It is a Christian holiday, yet a lot of non-Christians celebrate it. My sister and her family are Jewish, and they have a Christmas tree, and open presents on the 25th. It is true that the date was chosen to coincide with a pagan holiday to make it popular with converts, but for most of history, the day has been called Christmas, and celebrates the birth of Jesus (although His birth was probably NOT on 12/25). So celebrating Christmas doesn't mean anyone is shoving anything down your throat. You don't even have to celebrate it if you don't want to. But may I ask if you have and decorate a tree, hang stockings, or read "The Night Before Christmas" to your kids? Do you have lights on your house? Do you open presents on Christmas morning? Even Santa Claus says, "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"

    So chill out and stop acting like anyone is trying to convert you or indoctrinate you. If you're an atheist, so be it. If you're a Buddhist, fine. If you believe in Allah...well, let's not go too far here (although even Islam knows of Jesus as a great prophet). The day is, and always will be, Christmas. Us Christians celebrate it, and invite you to join in on the fun, even if you do want to take it secular. What is wrong with saying "Merry Christmas?" It doesn't make you a Christian, but at least you'll be admitting that the name of the day is Christmas. And if you can't do that, then do not object to the "PC" apellation. Because that is what you will be, politically correct. That is, refusing to accept this day the way it is known all over the world.

    And have a Merry Christmas, too. I'm sure Santa hasn't forgotten you.
