I?ll give you the fact that Christmas is a religious holiday, but that does not mean you have to celebrate it. By saying ?Merry Christmas? I am not telling you to convert to Christianity. I am simply saying to have a nice day on Dec 25 which is nationally recognized as being called ?Christmas?.

Um, dude, that happens to me 50% of the time I go into a restaurant all year round. Deal with it.

I?d gladly give up a lot of days off to get rid of a lot of stuff that is offensive to me, but I can?t. This is America, which means that other people have a right to their opinions too, even if it is offensive to me. It would be wrong to prohibit them from publicly displaying their opinions. If you don?t like it, ignore it.

I don?t celebrate any of the other holidays besides Christmas, but I still see plenty of them in public too. It doesn?t offend me in the slightest bit. I celebrate one thing, others celebrate something else. So what? If someone were to wish me a Happy Hanukah, I would say ?Thank you, you too,? even though I celebrate Christmas, not Hanukah.
