I'm sorry, but I'm offended by the apologetic way you wish us a Merry Christmas. Christmas IS a religious holiday. Get over it! Each person or family can choose whether to celebrate it or not, but why should we be apologetic about it? I'm not offended if someone tells me to have a good weekend, a good morning, a good evening, a good day or a good night. I'm not Jewish, but I take no offense if someone wishes me a Happy Hanukkah. I'm not Muslim, but when I was in Afghanistan, we were polite enough not to eat and drink in front of the Muslims during their week of fasting. I believe it is the epitome of intolerance to become offended if someone wishes you a Merry Christmas. The more we cater to intolerance, the more intolerant the world becomes.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!
And a Lump of Coal to you if you're offended by that!
We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore. - Mark Twain
