Just say Merry Christmas. If someone actually gets offended just because you said something as minor as that, then they might not be worth talking to.

merry christmas. "happy holidays" tries to undermine the christian power in the christmas times. if you say "happy holidays" you are probably an angry new yorker who thinks kwanzaa or hanukkah are actual holidays. don't forget what we're celebrating: the birth of of lord and saviour jesus christ... aka salvation of mankind

Christmas. Saying happy holidays is offensive to people not on holiday, sounds like you're rubbing it in.

Here's how I'd say it:

"Merry Christmas, stranger!"

"Oh, I don' celebrate Christmas. I celebrate [insert holiday here]."

"My apologies. Happy [insert holiday here] then!"

I don't get what's so difficult about this.

Its Merry Christmas. I absolutely fucking hate PC people. I work with shit loads of Muslims who are more eager to wish people a Merry Christmas even though they do not celebrate the holiday than those suffering some kind of white Christian guilt.

I say Merry Christmas because I celebrate Christmas. I'm not offended if someone else wishes me a happy Hanukkah, I thank them and appreciate their kindness. Why should they be offended if I wish them a merry Christmas?

Say "Merry Christmas." That's what it usually is for people and if it's not, they can wish you a happy Hanukkah and go on their merry fucking way.

imo saying happy holidays instead of merry christmas because you dont want to offend anyone is even more offensive because it implies that people of other religions that celebrate different holidays are petty enough to actually be offended that someone assumed their religion whereas simply saying merry christmas is just about impossible to offend someone with

I really doubt those who prefer other holidays get as offended by "Merry Christmas" as the hate filled-ultra liberals like to tell us.

Merry Christmas. Like what seems to be the general consensus, they really have no reason to be so butthurt about "But I celebrate Hanukkah/Qwanza/The Solstice!"; it's Christmas time, get over it.

Merry Christmas is appropriate by all means. A majority of the USA celebrates Christmas. If you are offended by me saying "Merry Christmas", you can go sodomize yourself with a bottle of dick sauce.

I actually say happy christmas holidays. Thus everyone's happy, both those who care about Christmas and those who only care about the holidays.

Merry Christmas, the whole happy holidays thing is just 'political correctness' gone batshit crazy cause some fucking idiots are scared they might offend some minority group or some shit if they say merry christmas to them

If you are retarded enough to be offended by something as petty as that then you fucking deserve to be offended.

I've always said Merry Christmas, partly due to the fact that I don't know anybody who celebrates Kwanzaa or whatever holiday comes around this time. I used to think that it didn't make much of a difference between happy holidays and Merry Christmas, mostly due to the fact that the holidays are so close to each other and the belief that the thought counts more.

Now I have a few Jewish associates of mine who don't really mind the phrase Merry Christmas, even though they celebrate Hannakah. I've gotten into the habit of saying Happy Hannakah around this time, as a gesture of kindness and all that stuff.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.
