Uhhmmm... I normally wouldn't get invovled in such a discussion, but as
of tommorow, Solstice
is over and Hannukah (sp?) has been over for a while... It is a
It is also not offensive to say Merry Christmas to someone, even if they
don't celebrate it.
If you take offense to it... well then get a life. It is not about
pushing and ideal or
a religious process onto anyone. It is depending on your belief:
1. A celebration of Christ in which you are expressing your happiness.
You don't have to agree with it.
You should be happy for the person who has the belief.
2. A celebration of the end of the year, which is what a minority of
people (in the US) view it as.
3. A painful reminder of the rampant consumerism that envelops the
majority of people and will quite
possibly be the cause of the fall of modern society.
O.k. I am getting a little negative now ;).
Long story short 1 and 2 aren't that bad... and most people on the
planet celebrate christmas because
of number 2, including areas such as Europe and Japan.
