Inspired by the many polls on "Merry Christmas," "Happy Holidays," and so on: Assume somebody addresses you with a greeting that is not YOUR preferred greeting. Are you offended?
Okay, Happy Chanukah! 😃
But, you'd better hurry! There are only about 8 hours left.
I still wouldn't be offended. At least, I can't imagine that I would be, but as an atheist I have to try to put myself in a religious person's position. If I were a Christian (which is how I was raised) would I be *offended* because someone made a general holiday greeting rather than one that addressed *my* personal religious beliefs? I would sure as heck *hope* that something like that didn't offend me. How would a store employee know whether I, a stranger, was a Christian, a Jew, a Buddhist, or something else?
Happy Kwanzaa! Merry Ramadan and Happy Tet.
Hindu Festival of Lights. 😊
Most one-sided poll ever. I dreamed of the day I would see a 99%-1% pole and it's finally here!
