It's not wrong to wish one "happy holidays"...why ASSUME they celebrate Christmas at this time of year? Many do NOT.
Then again, Deb, if one were to take that thought a step further, there are those who celebrate NONE
of the above.... and wouldn't THEY then have the "right" to be "offended" by being wished ANY mention of hoidays? So how do we get around THAT one, and maintain our over rated PCness?
Personally, I get irritated when I am unable to find nongeneric Christmas cards in the stores. That offends ME. To me, Christmas IS what it IS.. the birth of Christ.
If someone chooses to ignore that, or have different beliefs and celebrates a different holiday, that's fine. I understand we do not all believe the same.
But I still think the majority of this country holds Christmas dear in the traditional meaning. And the "traditional" Christmas cards should be made available to that majority. If they want to add others, fine.. include a selection of the other holidays as well, but don't strip the stores of anything pertaining to the birth of Christ during this holiday which means so much to so many of us... just to please those who do not celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.
I have no problem with other beliefs and other holidays.. let's include them, but not EXclude Christmas in doing so.
