    Yup. It always makes me think of Charlotte's "This is supposed to be my week!" on Sex and the City. You get a day. Not a week.

    People want to start wishing everyone a "Merry Christmas" in mid-November that's cool, but it's only fair that "Happy Holidays" be fair play too. Especially since I doubt all these high and mighty Christians are out being wished "Happy Holidays" at, you know, all the malls and shops that are open on December 25th.

    I always say Happy Holidays, so I get Kwanzaa and Hanukkah in there too. If I'm feeling sassy or asshoe'ish, I tend to say "Mappy Christmakwanzakkah". Though I must admit, being of the
    agnostic persuasion, I don't understand why some people get so bent out of shape, when a random person, wishes them the wrong holiday.

    That is hysterical. When I was a teen my bestfriend had little sisters and brothers so when they were bad grandpa would say, If you don't behave, I'm going to shoot santa when he comes here.

    I say Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas. I have a lot of friends that are jewish, christian, muslim, and atheist. Happy Holidays encompasses them all. Besides, my friends that aren't christian aren't offended by Merry Christmas. This includes my SO and his family.

    I love how certain followers of Christianity demands to be *the* default, showcased religion of the winter season. Sorry, assholes, there's a lot going on that time of year and you don't need to hijack all small talk with something Christ-centered. I love crafting, but I'm not all, "knitting is the reason for the season! What's on your needles?" to everyone from my postman to my gynecologist.

    My dad would leave beer and chips out for Santa (ie Dad) to refresh himself, and every Christmas morning Dad would tell us he got up early and saw Santa passed out drunk on the couch, so he had to pack him back into the sleigh and give the reindeer directions to get Santa back home. His standard Christmas morning tagline was "Santa is a dirty old soap" whatever that means.

    Your dad rocks and would have totally gotten on along with mine! We used to leave beer out too. Quite young I picked up on the fact that Santa's signature changed each year and with different gifts. My parents used to actually make people at the grocery store sign his name. So, when I brought it up to my parents my father told me that Santa has groupies of little lady elf helpers and they do the dirty work for him.

    I guess those Christians who are so offended by "Happy Holidays" don't celebrate New Year's Eve.

    I don't celebrate it but I don't get butthurt when someone wishes me Merry Christmas etc. I simply smile, say "thank you and same to you" and carry on. Ten seconds of niceness is so much easier then ten minutes of venting outrage at some poor bewildered soul.

    We always left out beer and a ham on rye sandwich. Of course a "sweet" treat also. Always gone in the morning.
    Oh, I offended you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself.
