Evidently saying "Merry Christmas" is starting to cause problems. We are all aware of the grinch companies who forbid their employees from saying the term for fear of insulting people. What I am seeing now is people walking around with a chip on their shoulders just waiting and daring someone to say "Happy Holidays" to them.
"No! No way! It's MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!", they say with a self-righteous scowl.
Is that really in the spirit of celebrating the birth of Jesus? Sure, we would prefer people to worship who we do and how we do it and do it for the right reason but sending good wishes with your mouth followed by daggers from your eyes is not making a very good case. So relax out there and don't get your Christmas panties in a wad if somebody doesn't say the right greeting. We are still celebrating Christmas no matter what they call it.
