Do the mature, responsible, professionals in position of leadership and power not have ANYTHING more important to do than squabble over Christmas??

It reminds me of the huge stink certain elephantine-types made over gay marriage to get certain people stirred up right before an election.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanza, Happy Holidays, Wonderful Winter Solstice, Merry Getting and Giving Presents Day.

Who the freak cares what someone ELSE calls it?

I'm pretty sure it is still within my right to freedom of speech to say something nice to you in any form I choose. Or was that "limited" under some obscure clause in the Patriot Act? Article 4, Section 103B: Real freedom loving, patriotic, God fearing, Saddam hating, terrorists fighting Americans only say "Merrry Christmas".

If you get offended (really? OFFENDED??) by someone telling you to have a happy holiday instead of a merry Christmas, then I hate to be the one to break it to you, but YOU have a serious problem, not the other person.

Is this really what America has come to? Phrase police? Are we so petty now? Are we so ready to hate someone? To be angry over something that we are taking the holiest season of several religions and using it as a battleground?

Why not, when someone utters one of those horribly awful disgustingly offensive phrases, like "Enjoy your holiday", try smiling and saying "Thank you. You too."

I think the Head Honcho's of all religions would like that.
