Who is actually offended by Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?
I'm not a Christian but I say merry Christmas to people I know are Christian and happy Hanukkah to people who I know are Jewish, etc... I wish happy holidays to anyone I don't know.
It's not the words it's the intent. Getting mad about this shows where people's hearts and minds are really at.
As far as I'm concerned, I don't care what you say. I can't grasp why people are offended either way on this. Let's all just be happy this person decided not to be rude today.
