Yea I am really getting sick of all this PC crap. Its happy Christmas its a "christian" holiday why should we change the name of it so a few people are happy.
Its like when ads get pulled off the TV because 8 people complained but they never think of those 36 million people who did not complain.

I think the whole "pushing it on everyone else" idea is why people would prefer others to say happy holidays. The fact is, this time of year is not just Christmas, and some people do not want to have a merry Christmas, just like you don't want to have a happy Hanukkah (I assume). To me everyone saying "Merry Christmas" and refusing to think about the fact that others may not celebrate the holiday is a bad thing because of the dominance of the christian religion already. We are at a point now where it is not okay to keep squashing other cultures and religions, and the whole "I'm christian, I celebrate christmas, and fuck off if you don't" mentality is doing just the opposite, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

So what are we supposed to say?

"Merry Chriskwanannukah"?

"Happy Holidays" is a term that could apply to any time of year. Easter? Happy holidays. Halloween? Happy holidays. 4th of july? Happy holidays. Valentine's Day? Happy holidays. The majority of people celebrate Christmas so we say Merry Christmas. If your feelings are hurt because I said "merry christmas" to you, thats too bad. I spend my life living, not worrying 24/7 about stepping on everyone else's toes. If that sounds insensitive of me, tough shit. You celebrate Hanukkah? You let me know, and from now on thats what I'll say. Kwanzaa? Same story. Darwin's birthday, or whatever atheists do on christmas? Say the word. But I'll say "merry christmas" because thats whats in the windows on the stores and on the TV. Its the predominant aspect of society, and we cant muddy things up with everyone's point of view at once. Have your own opinions, thats fine. I have no problem with that; Its not that I don't like you, its just that political correctness is synonymous with censorship in my book.

Here's a thought if Christmas didn't happen then this would be a holiday time of year you'd probably just have new years eve and that's it - there would be no debate on this issue if 2009 years ago Christ wasn't born and therefore this time of year wouldn't be a holiday season at all it'd just be another one of those breaks, technically it's only rerally 3 days of it too just schools over here in AUS get 2 months of or so at this time of year as its the end of the year.

I like christmas
i dont find it racist, thats just stupid
PC has gone far to far
even the people that should be offended really aren't

for me its when we see christmas before december
it really irritates me
call me scrooge but before December christmas is absolutely ridiculous
after december say whatever you want or do whatever you want

I love jingle bombs btw thanks for that

kudos to lillian thorne for the awesome sig

People can say happy "what ever event inserted here" they want! that doesn't offend me at all. The saying "happy holidays" does! celebrate what ever you want, Ill wish someone a happy Hanukkah no problem! its there faith thats cool and i want them to have a happy one!

"If you're offended, I don't give a fuck." There's my mentality, I'm sure somebody out there wont appreciate it.
