Happy Chrimbo from snowy Canada. Currently waiting at the airport for a plane to Jamaica. I've seen enough snow thanks.

Happy Christmas. And to those of you who may be offended by the word or the religious significance, go f*ck yourselves. There now, you have something to be properly offended about.

Simple.

There is no religious significance, Hawkeye... it's a big marketing festival.

I’ve never come across anyone that is offended to be wished Merry Christmas, can’t help but feel it’s a Daily Mail type story that doesn’t truly exist.

I work with a team based in 28 countries, half of which don’t celebrate Christmas as a religious festival, but have the time off with their families as holiday, hence Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays feels like an inclusive term.

Strikes me that people that want to enforce “Merry Christmas” on people are arguing the same point as those that want to enforce “Happy Holidays” - just say both, then you potentiall exclude no one, not that they’re bothered in any event.

Then go to America where many snowflakes are offended by the word Christmas. They want to say shite like happy holidays.
Saying that I hope everyone did have a Merry Christmas, and their New Year brings good health, and they are prosperous.

Thought this was an interesting read.

I spend about 13 weeks a year in the US, Dallas mainly but also in the Bay area. I work for a large US company. I just never see this conflict between Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays, people say what they feel like saying, nobody seems to get upset in any way.
