Happy Holidays, Season's Greetings and all that

What’s with all these militant Christians screaming bloody murder about people and stores that use the term “Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas?"

For the record, some folks celebrate Hanukkah, not Christmas. Others aren’t religious but like the idea of peace on earth, good will toward men, exchanging gifts, parties, decorations and all the other accoutrement of the season. New Year’s is a holiday, too, so those who say “Happy Holidays” are acknowledging there’s more than one holiday coming up.

Does anyone think Jesus, who preached loving thy neighbor as thyself, would hold it against anyone who wished a Christian "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas?"  I don't. So I'm going to go out on a limb here: Happy Holidays from my house to yours.

Might burn in hell for eternity but it's a risk I'm willing to take.
