Just said Merry Christmas to someone...

...and they got all bent lol. I sensed the offense and said "Dont like it? Tough!" I grew up with that and thats too bad. Canada and the US Christmas is the center of the holidays, always has and always will be. Be proud of it and take the season back.

You actually found someone who was offended by "merry Christmas"? I always thought that was more of a joke about how politically correct things have gotten.

If you celebrate Christmas, don't be shy about it! If you're Jewish, wish the goyim a happy Hanukkah! If you're a post-Celtic neo-pagan, wish me a prosperous winter solstice or whatever the heck it is you like to celebrate in the winter. Freedom of religion doesn't mean shamefully hiding your traditions.

LOL wrong area whoops lol. I respect others beliefs I'm dating a full native girl. But Christmas is Christmas. Dont feel bad to say it! If you looked forward to Christmas morning, watched those stop motion animations and Believed Santa was real its absolutely your right to let anyone and everyone know. Merry Christmas everyone.

regardless of their religion, I cannot for the life of me figure out why anyone would get all bent out of shape when you wish them a merry christmas . . . . obviously it is a positive thing, wishing them well and all that, so what if the choice of words is not what they would choose; I don't understand how they can possibly turn it into a bad thing . . . this PC stuff has gone way out of control

It seems people are too politically correct nowadays and are offended by anything they don't view as their religion or core value . Even if you don't observe Christmas you don't have to be an ass about it, just appreciate the fact someone was nice enough to say it to you versus looking at you and say F*** off.

I wholeheartedly agree, and I applaud both of you for your tolerance and open mindedness. Merry Christmas!
