Cheesehead....that makes no sense. I was simply noting that it is ridiculous for people to be offended with the term "Happy Holidays". Especially people who claim to be "christians". Perhaps the wisher is wanting people to have a Merry Christmas AND a Happy New Year. Why would anyone be offended from a positive, well meaning wish? Talk about negativity. Look at the positives, people and quit your *******!

"The origin of the word 'holiday' is "Holy Day".


did you forget to wish everyone you know and met with a 'cherry'

"happy kawanza" 'holy-day' greeting this year?

'bet you didn't'

'bet you "forgot"'

I wish the "frogleggs" family would pool their money and teach their idiot child to type correctly, instead of dragging down the entire page and using two posts to get a point across. That, or maybe find a brain donor.

The origin of the word "holiday" is "Holy Day". True "Christians" would not be insulted with a well wish that is all inclusive. Who is reinforcing their ignorance again?

If businesses,

and people care enough about sending messages of happiness and joy at this time of year,

but fail to recognize that Christ is the 'reason for the season',

but are rather not-caring enough to study their audience or intended recipient….

it speaks to

political expediency,

business expediency,

not wanting to ‘insult’


but all the while is a missive in writing


by way of deferring or failure to acknowledge Christ or Christmas in their 'politically correct' missives.

Every “holiday’ card that comes in the mail, proclaiming

“happy holidays”,

I automatically assign to the dolt bin, and forget about-em next year.

Can you imagine anything more mindless, then sending a non-religious CHRISTMAS CARD, during the Christmas Holidays...

If you can't man-up to Christmas, then forget-about-it entirely!

Why reinforce your ignorance?

Wouldn’t the clergy in the area

be overcome,



if people were to invade local church emporiums

to spend as much

time, effort and money

for religious


introspection, and

the anniversary memorial celebrating Christ’s birth?


we could be building more churches, church parking lots,

not closing them,

instead of building more stores,

that glorify Christ’s birth


by counting the amount of money changing hands….

Never Mind buying, and wishing everyone on cards

the politically expedient ape butted “happy holidays”.

If you aren’t Christian enough to acknowledge Christ‘s birth,

why bother sending Christmas Cards proclaiming

“happy holidays” or “happy nothing days”.


send the appropriate card for each

religious persecution to the

appropriate recipient.
