Couldn't agree more... KEEP CHRIST IN CHRISTmas! Jesus is the reason for the season.

I am Jewish as was my family, but you know what?

My dad was fat and loved the season. He played Santa Claus for the local school system. We had a Christmas tree every year while we celebrated Channukah. I buy my friends Christmas gifts and receive likewise.

My opinion is really simple: To each his own. I have fun, you have fun. And Godamnit I wanna sing Silent Night and Merry F'in Christmas to you all!

Doesn't really bother me either way, Christmas was a pagan holiday originally anyways.

The truth of the matter is that the problem is with the legal system. Wrong person. Wrong lawyer, and ANYTHING is offensive.

End of story.

This holiday season has more to do with winter Solstice then it does a Christian holiday. You'll also find several other denominations celebrate some kind of religious day or timeframe of importance

Hence, Happy Holidays is more appropriate.

Christianity is the primary religion in North America, hence Merry Christmas is widely accepted in this part of the world.
