Is there a “War on Christmas”?

Why is there the belief that there is a war on Christmas?

Is it because people would rather say “happy holidays” to be inclusive? Remember Christians, you pillaged a tradition from a faith that you subsequently tried to exterminate.

When is the last time that you heard a Jew get offended when you said merry Christmas and not happy Hanukkah?

I did see issues with being people being directed to use “happy holidays”. That was until I stopped and THOUGHT about it with an open mind. I think it was Badcat that helped shine a light of education on the subject. Look at that, civil discussion CAN change minds.

I saw one Christian comment that they felt that cashiers should take the time to get to know your faith so that they could give the appropriate holiday wishes. I just want my duct tape, rope, and KY jelly… why do you want to hold up the entire line to have social hour when it could be a simple happy holidays?

No, there is no war against Christmas, there is however, a desire to be kinder people to all and to take others’ feelings into consideration.
